Tree Tales

7:58 AM

This is (obviously) a tree that I drew. To brighten it up, I threw some color around it and now it kind of looks like fire. I liked the idea of having birds fly out of it, or evolving out of it like phoenixes...so that's what I drew. Since there's not much more to say about it, I shall regale you with other tree-tales and facts that I can come up with:

I always wanted a treehouse in my backyard but we didn't have a big enough tree. We did, however, have a teeny tiny plum tree that I spent lots of time in. This was a small tree, people. There was barely room for me to sit in it. But I was determined, so I made it work.

Favorite tree in a movie: Obviously the tree in Swiss Family Robinson. It's the correct answer, right? Runner-up goes to "Hangman's Tree," where Peter Pan hides out, or the Eewok Village in Star Wars.

Favorite trees to look at: Birch trees. I like the straight trunks with white bark. I like that they seem tidy.

Favorite song about a tree: O Christmas Tree, because it's the only one I can think of. That, and "Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Old Oak Tree" but that just reminds me of piano lessons.

Favorite trees to climb: I've never actually gotten to climb a banyan tree, but they look amazing. I'd very much like to climb one of those. I always got jealous when the "Lost" gang was climbing around in them on the island, though they never seemed to appreciate the privilege.

Favorite fictional trees: The Ents from Lord of the Rings. Especially when they take on Isengard.

Least favorite fictional trees: Weren't there some trees in The Wizard of Oz that attacked Dorothy and her pals? I recall them being terrifying.

  1. I was so sad when Disney replaced Swiss Family Robinson's Treehouse with stupid Tarzan. So not the same!
