Make friends with a tree

You’ve seen this arboreous giant

nearly every day

walking down the sandy pathways

and grabbing some shade from the warmth of the sun

he provides a nice place for picnics

thing is….have you ever considered your green leaved friend?

it can’t be easy for him being outside

in every conceivable weather

while satisfying your every whim

he even puts the local wildlife – before himself

so perhaps – its time to give him a preening

a spray of fertiliser around his roots and even

a drop of cool running water from a watering can

then maybe after he’s dropped this years leaves in autumn

he might produce some fresh green leaves in spring

but for now – one thing he might really appreciate

a big hug from his visiting chums
