Jasmine & The Old Oak Tree
Jasmine is a six year old girl, who loved her back yard. She thought there was no other yard in the whole world like her own. It was a brisk, sunny, Saturday afternoon. The weather was breezy, but beautiful. It was the afternoon, leading into Easter Sunday, 2014. Jas was visiting with her Great Aunt Fluff (GAF). GAF had a quaint little house on the corner in her neighborhood. She had many beautiful flowers and blooming colorful rose bushes. There was also a really odd looking tree in her front yard. The odd thing about this tree was that it seemed to have a face and a mouth that was opened wide! GAF and Jas were sitting on the long front porch, chatting very maturely about lizards, spiders, birds, bees, frogs, snails, ants and other inhabitants of the tree. Jas and GAF got into a long interesting discussion about what insects eat and how they survive and why they need certain materials to build homes and also the many uses trees provide.
