The best time for apples
It was a lesson of Natural History at a small village school. The lesson was about the seasons of the year.
“There are four seasons in a year,” says the teacher. “They are spring, summer, autumn, winter. In spring it is warm and the trees are green. In summer it is hot and there are many flowers in the fields, in the parks, in the gardens. In autumn it often rains. The weather is not fine. But there are many apples in the apple-trees. The apples are ripe. They are yellow and red. In winter it is cold and it usually snows.”
Here the teacher stopped and looked at one of the pupils. “Stop talking, Johnny,” he said. “Now answer my question. What is the best time for apples?”
”It’s when the farmer is not at home and there is no dog in the garden”.
