This is kind of an odd country community at different times of the year which is good for the rocks and the tree. The rocks and the tree get tired of talking to each other; telling the same old stories and of course, the rocks have more boring stories to tell than the tree. In fact, the tree gets really annoyed when a story start with "I remember when you were just an acorn...". Generally, once a year some new ears show up like these fiddleneck and the rocks and tree are refreshed with the expectation of telling stories anew!
