Still getting the same error after making corrections "There should be a blank line before a method"

pep.py
import datetime


def my_func():
    return 'It ran!'


sizes = ['small', 'medium', 'large']


class Tree:
    def __init__(self, size, characteristics):
        self.size = size
        self.charac = characteristics
        self.roots = True
        self.leaves = 0 

    def grow_leaves(self):
        self.leaves += 1

Tree(sizes[0], {'name': 'Tulip Tree'})

Hey Allison Seim, this challenge is very picky.

  • There is a black space at the end of the line self.leaves = 0 which causes a miscount of blank lines.
  • There needs an additional blank line (2 total) after the class definition (above the Trees instantiation)

Post back if you need more help. You got this!!
