The Hobbit Posters and Riddles

As we read through the hobbit we are doing some creating. Below are two posters my students made that represented their favorite scene from the first 15% of The Hobbit book. 

After Bilbo bests Gollum in a riddle contest (completely through luck and a bit of cheating) we decided to make our own riddles. Here is mine, see if you can guess the correct answer.
It's long, it's short, it's gone. When you are young you want it where it isn't. When you are old you have it where you don't want it. 

Julissa's riddle:
You never know when it will grow or shrink.  
Nicole's riddle:
What grows old and loses it's color but comes back new in the next summer?

HI, my name is Meghana, I'm from Texas and I love
The Hobbit (although I've only watched the movies). My personal favorite scene is where Radagast is introduced. Sadly, I'm not good at riddles so I can't answer those at the bottom.
