Flower/story challenge – Day 6

[Day 6 of seven]

Is it really day 6, or do I have my days confused? That’s highly likely you know!


Today’s flower shot comes from my backyard. When we moved into the house three years ago, I was delighted to discover a lovely pink rose growing beside the clothes line, squashed into the fence by a rhododendron bush.

I have better photos of this particular rose bush, but I quite like the light on this one, so it will do for today’s stimulus.

Today, the challenge is to use the word ‘rose’ in the story somewhere. It doesn’t have to be referring to the flower, it could be something along the lines of ‘Jim rose from the chair … ‘, or ‘The bread rose gently …’ or ‘Rose wandered lonely as a breadcrumb through the aisles of a deserted theatre.’

It’s entirely up to you how you use the word in your 60-80 word story!

I look forward to your unbridled creativity.
