Narrative

I like this tree because of its dark smooth bark. It is not fully-grown but it is very close. I like this tree because of its pretty pink flowers, and its big heart shaped leaves. My brother and I throw a football next to this tree all the time. I used climb and swing on the branches. It is a fairly small tree, but it adds a lot of color to our yard and our house. My tree is surrounded by a bed of ivy, and is next to a Tulip Poplar. The Tulip Poplar is larger than the Redbud, and he kind of looks like a father to him. Our Redbud is my favorite tree, and he is also very useful. Our tree helps our environment. Our tree is a home to birds, and squirrels like to climb in the tree. My tree is beautiful, and he is useful to all of the animals in our area.
