"Be patient, Thomas. It's only a few months to wait now!"
— Edward

Thomas' Tree is a magazine story.


It is Spring on Sodor and every day Thomas likes to admire a tree in a garden near the last station on his branch line. The tree was covered in colourful blossom, but as the days pass, the blossoms kept falling off until the tree was completely bare. Thomas was disappointed and told Edward about it. Edward explained that the blossoms would return next Spring.

As the weather grew warmer, the tree became covered in green leaves. Towards the end of summer, Thomas noticed the tree was covered in juicy red apples. Thomas thought the apples were nice - but not as nice as the blossom. Over the next few weeks, leaves started dropping off the tree until there were none left at all and the tree began to sparkle in the icy weather.

When winter drew to an end, the weather started to become warm again. Spring had returned and so had the blossoms. Thomas was glad the beautiful blossoms had returned, but he had to admit that all the other seasons were beautiful too.
