Nature by the nectarine

Waerenga

Waikato

Grace, 10

The sun slides down slowly taking a last glance at the proud tree. Its trunk rests beside the chicken coop and tufts of dry grass spring upward - a perfect place to have a sit. The tree's friends - the plum and the pittosporum are younger than her. They all hope to be strong and big when they grow up. Under the nectarine is where I like to be.
