THE ENGLISH AND THE GARDENS


__
English persons like gardenes and parks very much. On Sundays they
take their childs with them and we can see mans, womans, girls, boies and
even babys in their prams very happy breathing fresh air. Older people read
newspapers, magazines or even lifes of famous people. The green leaves
of the trees protect them from the sun. Red buses run in the streets. That
little baby, smiling with his tooths, plays with his toies.
