The Naked Trees – Conversations with Stella and the Pack


I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. The trees must be cold.

Miss Sweetie:  If they are cold, why are they taking their clothes off?

Doodlebug:  Yeah, and why do they throw their clothes on my head?

Me:  Leaves.

Tiger:  Leaves what?

Me:  No, I mean the trees. They are shedding their leaves.

Wiggles:  How come? I thought they looked nice. Now their tree arms just look skinny and naked.

Me:  It’s that time of year. That’s why we call this season ‘Fall’. And Autumn. We call it that, too.

Stella: Humans make everything complicated. Two names for the same thing. Too wordy.

Me:  What would you call this season?

Stella:  Cool Windy Cloudy Air Time. See. Isn’t that better?
