Friday 55 Flash Fiction #217 Moving again...






I don't want to move again.

Every flaming year you insist I move.

I like it here, I'm comfortable and I've done well, leave me be!

Only a couple of months ago you said I was 'blooming'!

"You'll do much better over there by the greenhouse next year" 

said the gardener to the rose bush. 



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.

Totally feeling this one this week. Though you probably don't want to know the fate of my rosebush!

Gardeners like to rearrange Anthony ;)

Sometimes it's not good to move your rose bush Melanie ;)

What ever happened to the whole mindset "Bloom where you're planted"? Nice one.

Valerie said...

Heehee who knows best, the rose or the gardener? Nice one, Pearl.

Akelamalu said...

No doubt it did AJ LOL

That does work, sometimes Other Mary ;)

Mostly the rose Valerie but with a little help from the gardener. ;)

I agree with the rose bush because my wife has made me move various plants to different locations in our yard.
