Here we are once again where our friend Jenny Matlock, of Off On My Tangent fame throws us a nice & easy slider (it's baseball season, okay?). This week we need to write a 100 words or less using the prompt, April showers bring May flowers. We could write about the obvious, or we could get step outside the box and write something really silly! You decide! Here we go! The prompt is in bold.
It was hot. Nola and her sisters had just finished their chores. Tired and sweaty, they walked home.
"I want to shower" April shouted. "It is so dang hot!" Poppa had built an outdoor shower next to the garden. All the run-off ended up in the garden, and during spring, they would grow some amazing Marigolds. Fernmae worked the garden.
April sang “99 Bottles” during her shower. The run-off was so heavy that Fernmae asked Nola to help. It flowed fast and the Marigolds uprooted ending up at the back door. Mama came out, picked up the flowers and put them in a vase on the sill. You could say that April's Showers sometimes bring Fernmae's Flowers!
My inspiration for the story is this picture. Nola is in the middle.
