HI friends.

I get this error when I compile.

TreeStory.java:13: error: variable console is already defined in method main(String[])
Console console = System.console();

here's the code:

import java.io.Console;

public class TreeStory {

public static void main(String[] args) {

    /*  Some terms:
        noun - Person, place or thing
        verb - An action
        adjective - A description used to modify or describe a noun
        Enter your amazing code here!
  Console console = System.console();
  String name = console.readLine("Enter your name:  ");
  String adjective = console.readLine("Enter an adjective:  ");
  console.printf("%s is very %s", name , adjective);
