The best time for apples
It was the first lesson after the summer holidays at a small school.
The lesson was about the seasons of the year, the teacher said: “ They are Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. In Spring, it is warn and everything begins to grow. In Summer it is hot and there are many flowers in the fields and gardens. In Autumn there are many vegetables and much fruit. Everybody likes to eat fruit. In Winter it is cold and it often rains. Sometimes there is snow on the ground.”
Here the teacher stopped and looked at one of the pupils. “ Stop talking, Tom,” he said.
“ When is the best time for apples?” “ It is when the farmer is not at home and there is no dog in the garden.” Answered Tom.
