Flora's brothers and sisters tease her when she "plants" a brick in a flowerpot and insists that she's growing a house.

It's springtime, and Flora's family is busy planting flowers and vegetables. "Why don't you grow something?" says Flora's Dad. "Some pretty flowers?" says Flora's mom. But Flora finds a brick and puts it in a flowerpot, insisting that it will one day become a house. Of course, her brothers and sisters laugh. But Flora has the last laugh in the following spring, when she discovers that a bird has made its home in her flowerpot.
