Every morning, Johnny takes his flock of sheep to the fields to graze. He would sit under a tree and watch the sheep lazily munch on the grass. After they had eaten, he would round them up and walk home.One day, Johnny saw a wolf at the edge of the field. However, it was some distance away and it did not come nearer. Johnny at first stood guard against the wolf and kept a strict watch over its movements.But the wolf did not do anything. When Johnny herded the sheep and walked home with his flock, the wolf quietly followed them at a distance.This continued for a few days. Johnny would find the wolf waiting near the field every morning.One day, in the middle of grazing his sheep, Johnny felt very hungry. I think Ill leave my sheep here and go home and grab a quick meal. I dont think that wolf will eat my sheep, he said to himself.When he came back, what did he find? The wolf had eaten most of his sheep. Johnny broke down in tears.In shock, Johnny sat down under a huge shady tree. Serves me right, he moaned to himself, Why was I so stupid to trust a wolf?

Muthu could see from the parking lot that the flowers and shrubs at the nursery were already in full bloom. Muthus father rubbed his hands together, Lets go and do some shopping, he said. Muthu pushed the shopping cart while his father piled things into it. They bought ferns, flowers and fertilizer.Muthus father held up a birdhouse. Should we get this? he asked Muthu. Muthu shook his head. Lets make our own, he said.They also decided to buy trays of young tomato and eggplant. Are you sure we should get tomato? Muthu asked his father. Remember how the snails ate it all last year?His father sighed and nodded. Im going to spread sawdust this year. I heard that it helps to keep the snails away.Before paying, Muthu and his father spent some time walking around the nursery looking at all the plants. After that, they drove home and spent the rest of the day working in their garden. Muthu was tired when he went bed, but he was happy as the garden looked beautiful.
