It was a bright, cold spring morning. In a field, where new shoots


were poking their heads through the soil stood Olivia, a large oak
tree. Olivia tingled, her new leaves were beginning to show, bright,
green and fresh. The nearby hedgerow had a show of hawthorn
blossom and new shoots and leaves too.
Was Olivia lonely in that field? No, because in Olivias branches and
around her roots lived her friends.
