The copycat trees

You may recall me saying that the trees in my neighborhood have copied my style.

I have white ‘socks’……………

……….and the trees have white ‘socks’.

Now, I am currently doing this……….

……..yes, I am shedding my coat.

Well, on my walk through the neighborhood today I noticed that the trees have started to do this………….

……………resulting in this……………

Yes, the trees have noticed I am shedding so they have started to shed too.

I don’t mind the trees copying me – in fact I’m flattered. Their timely copycat behaviour was also useful when the tall person called me to a meeting to discuss the amount of hair I am leaving on the floors. I pointed out that he is fortunate that he has a shedding Caucasian Shepherd and not a shedding tree. He had to agree.
