|A few of the seeds we'll be planting this year...|
"I wish I had a garden," said Toad.
"Here are some flower seeds. Plant them in the ground," said Frog, "and soon you will have a garden."
"How soon?" asked Toad.
"Quite soon," said Frog.
Toad ran home. He planted the flower seeds.
... Toad put his head close the the ground and said loudly, "Now seeds, start growing!"
Toad looked at the ground again. The seeds did not start to grow.
