A Wishing Tree

on January 1, 2014

postcards1_4_3This stunning card comes from Kun in Hong Kong and shows a fantastic traditional image of a wishing tree. This specific one is one of two at Tin Hau temple in Tai Po. The tradition says that if you throw paper up into the tree, you can make a wish. The higher the branch it lands on, the more likely your wish is to come true. Wonderful card and I love the colours, thanks Kun!
