“Dad did you just say a money tree. Can you really get a money tree?”

Son will often take things very literally. I’ve talked about this before. It is something which is fairly common with autism. I must admit I did this as a kid. You often find yourself trying to re-explain phrases that you often through into conversations (I am sure my parents had to do a similar thing).

My explanation of a money tree was rudely interrupted by Captain Chaos.

Dad the pup is running round the garden with a sock. Correction. He is now burying the sock.”

I really can’t wait for the Sock Tree to grow….

Then we started thinking about other really useful trees we wish we could grow in the garden

  • The Money Tree (obviously) or if that’s a problem then we would settle for a Pay Your Bills Tree,
  • The Hugging tree – readily available hugs would be nice,
  • The one our cat can climb without getting stuck Tree,
  • The Anxiety Absorbing Tree,
  • The Children’s Clothes Tree – not having to constantly go to the sewing basket and fix knee and elbow holes would be lovely,
  • The Pancake Tree – would have been really useful today after my rather soggy attempts,
  • The Remote Control Tree – why do remote controls have stealth technology built into them, bloody thing is always going missing,
  • The Brexit Tree – would have to grow within the next few days….,
  • The Prune itself Tree – really essential after my last eye injury,
  • The Mirror of Erised Tree – if Harry Potter can have his deepest desires mirror then surely we can have a tree that does the same thing. Having said that I would prefer a Take you back 6 years to happier times Tree,
  • The Bird Dropping Missile Defence Shield Tree – how good would it be to have a tree that can eliminate bird droppings before they hit the ground,
  • The Chocolate Tree – now we are talking,
  • The Donut Tree – horticultural heaven.

So as I go outside to see if the Sock Tree has started to grow (probably next to the Pants Tree) can you think of any better ones.

  1. Lol Itโ€™s four oโ€™clock in the morning and as usual I am awake! This gave me a giggle. Maybe a Sleep Tree would be good. And a Letโ€™s have nice dreams Tree. The imagination could go on and on with this one!

      1. Oh lol. A New Back Door Tree. Another one for me would be a Puddle Storage Tree. We always get a MASSIVE deep puddle right outside our back door and the dog goes mad in it. Then you know the rest. Cimes back in the kitchen a d wets us thoroughly! Lol

      2. Thanks Gary. I am good, today thankyou. Hope you are too. Just about to go out for a drive. There will certainly be a few trees on our drive. I might have a word with some of them ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. My best friend and I used to have a running joke about not remembering where we planted our money tree. We knew it was out there somewhere, but we could not remember where. One year for Christmas I found a small ornate money tree that I gave to her for her gift. She said it was the best gift she had ever received, especially since it had been a part of our tradition for so long.

  3. I would like a tree with fruit which is not only calorie free but also reduces weight when eaten. I canโ€™t think a name for it right now, but please place an order for it. It will make us millionaire overnight. ๐Ÿ˜‚

  4. I’m great at making light fluffy pancakes (more like Crepe’s actually!) ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love the post! You both came up with some very good ones. (Love the stealth technology in the remote). ๐Ÿ™‚

    How about a Laundry Tree – has a tub in the trunk that can spin dry then the branches pull the clothes out to dry on them on before folding them up and placing them in a waiting washing basket. (Note: Keep Dog away from full basket!)

    To be planted next to an Ironing Tree, or it’s subspecies the Steam Press Tree!

    To go with the Hugging Tree – a head, neck and shoulders Massage tree. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Finally, a tree that stands guard over your house, property and family and protects them from harm day and night – i’d call it a Sen-tree! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I’d love for all those trees (though not Brexit, as it wouldn’t do me much good over here), plus a Time Tree.
    It reminds me of The Magician’s Nephew, where they had the money and lamppost trees sprout up. ๐Ÿ™‚
