Here is the winning story….
As the leaves began to fall Livvygirl had just came back from her summer holiday, she was visiting all her friends and showing them photos and new things she had brought on holiday. When Livvygirl finally got back to her tree house she went down to her garden. As she was walking around and checking all her seeds she heard a crunching sound underneath her feet. “Hmmm,” she said to herself “All these leaves and bare trees remind me of something, oh well maybe it will come to me after I have a good nights sleep!”
When she was walking back to her tree house she also noticed a slight chill in the air. That reminded her of something.
The next day she went for a stroll around Garden Party. She hadn’t seen the lovely sights or GPW since spring!! “Gosh, I really do miss fishing at Lazy Lagoon and painting the odd picture at Rock Heights” she said to herself as she was walking through Timber Town, when she noticed that cool breeze in the air again. Livvygirl strained her mind. What had she forgotten? She still couldn’t think of what it could be. Livvygirl also noticed that the sky was a dull grey colour. She kicked her feet amongst the crisp leaves. She decided not to worry about it and just enjoy her day. That night Livvygirl started to think about it again. What was it she had forgotten? What were all those leaves? Why was everything so….dull? Livvygirl felt sad. She trudged back to Timber Town. Maybe she would remember if she just sat down and looked around. She was still feeling sad when her wise friend Tails walked by. “Livvygirl! What are you doing sitting down there by yourself at this hour of the night? What’s the matter you look a little upset.” Tails was wearing a scarf and a woolly beanie. Why was he wearing such warm clothes? She thought to herself.
“Tails, yesterday and today I have noticed that everything is grey and all the trees are bare and the sky is grey and clouds are always hiding the sun and it’s so cold and….”
“Oh Livvygirl you silly gardener!” Tails said chuckling to himself.
“What’s so funny?” said Livvygirl.
“Its Autumn silly!” laughed Tails.
Then everything clicked. All the leaves in her garden and the bare trees…it was all because the season was changing.
“Oh my gosh Tails you have just explained a lot to me!” Livvygirl explained to Tails about not noticing all the signs that are were changing to Autumn. Tails smiled when she finished explaining.
“Oh Livvygirl you are one funny little gardener!”
They both laughed and Livvygirl went off to bed with a smile on her face.
Keep growing your own fun!
