A Seed Pod on the Head


One sunny day, the Old Woman  walked out onto the balcony at the back of the house to shake the crumbs off the tablecloth. She always shook the crumbs out onto the lawn for the ants and anyone else who felt like a crumb or two.

Down at the back of the garden she could see some of the big crows. They were on the fences and on the shed roof and they were having a fine old conversation.





The two little fluffy dogs came trotting along from the house at the back fence to see what all the commotion was about. They wandered to and fro, just looking up at the crows. The crows peered down at them and passed a few comments about their fluffy coats.



Suddenly, the big crow had a good idea! He hopped sideways along the fence and picked up a jacaranda seedpod that had fallen.

 Then he hopped back again and very carefully dropped that seedpod on the head of one of the dogs! The little dog jumped in fright and all the crows laughed fit to fluff their feathers!
