There is an error "Bummer: There should be a blank line before a method." appearing.

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'})

If I paste the above code directly into the challenge, it passes!

So I'd guess you may have had a space on one of those lines that appear to be blank.
