100 Word Wednesday: week #63

Thanks to Bikurgurl for setting us the challenge again this week.

For most, it was a first to be invited to the Manor, but there were strings attached.
The new Ladyship had wanted to meet them all, so invited the entire village, cheekily asking them to bring a shovel, rake, hoe or fork.
Food would be laid on by way of a BBQ at no cost to them whatsoever, but there was work to be done first. She didn’t lie when she said it was going to be a garden party in every sense of the word, and no-one would leave empty-handed.
For their labour, each received a basket of bulbs.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Ah! What a good idea to offer bulbs and refreshments for getting the garden in shape….maybe I should implement that in my own garden! 🙂 Thank you for adding your lovely story to our writing community 🙂

    As they should. I once planted bulbs and loved the idea that the following year they popped up again.
