Friday 55 Flash Fiction # 119 Green Fingers.....



Brenda had always loved gardening.


She loved it even more now she had her greenhouse.


She had all sorts growing in there -


Tomatoes, cucumber, courgettes, fruit and flowers of every variety.


Imagine her surprise when the police arrived


and siezed the plants she was looking after for the nice young man who lived next door!




Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.
