Ah, that’s better. It’s been a busy couple of weeks in the Orchard household, so apologies for our absence. This was a truly lovely picture prompt (courtesy of Sandra Crook) for the Friday Fictioneers flash fiction challenge. This is managed by our host Rochelle Wisoff-Fields over at her blog Addicted to Purple, otherwise known as Friday Fictioneers Central. Sorry for going AWOL boss! And apologies to Sandra for the fact my story is only very loosely related to the prompt at all. My story follows the picture and the rest of this week’s stories can be found by clicking on the blue link monster.

Another week and a new look at Anne Orchard central. I really struggled with an idea for the story this week, I have no idea why. So this week’s Friday Fictioneers offering has only tangential reference to the picture prompt. This week’s picture is from Doug MacIlroy, so please respect his copyright. All the instructions for taking part in this 100-word flash fiction blog challenge can by found at the blog of our esteemed leader, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. This week’s other stories are found by clicking on the blue fella under my story. And finally you will see a request from me for some assistance if you are visiting before Saturday and you can spare me a few moments.
