Mrs Williams loved flowers and had a small but beautiful

garden. In the summer, her roses were always the best in

her street. One summer afternoon her bell rang, and when

she went to the front door, she saw a small boy outside. He

was about seven years old, and was holding a big bunch of

beautiful roses in his hand.

'I am selling roses,' he said. 'Do you want any? They are

quite cheap. Five pence for a big bunch. They are fresh.

I picked them this afternoon.'

'My boy,' Mrs Williams answered, 'I pick roses whenever

I want, and don't pay anything for them, because I have lots in my garden.'

'Oh, no, you haven't,' said the small boy. 'There aren't

any roses in your garden—because they are here in my hand!'
