The pots at number 345 had been the talk of the neighbourhood.
Like the occupant, they were flourishing.
It wasn’t just the plants that were giving her a new lease of life, more the owner of the jacket hanging on the post at the bottom of the steps.

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.

  1. Dear Di,

    Sometimes it’s the simplest things that give pleasure. And some not so simple. 😉 Nice piece in half the word count. 😀

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

    So much of the story said with so few words. Nicely done.

    Hope he didn’t leave his wallet in the jacket

  4. trentpmcd says:

    Funny, that’s a detail I missed. Oh well. Usually people don’t like to advertise those things, but I’m sure they have their reasons…

  5. The jacket at number 345 will be the new talk of the neighbourhood I suspect!

    My go at Friday Fictioneers!

  6. Sadje says:

    Well written. In a few words you have put in a lot of story.

  7. Sandra says:

    Oh well-spotted!

  8. So few words. So much said! 🙂

  9. Iain Kelly says:

    Good eagle-eyed spot Di, no wonder the neighbourhood is gossiping! 🙂

  10. msjadeli says:

    Good for her. Nice story, Di.

  11. DB McNicol says:

    Awesome! I admit to completely missing the jacket when I wrote my story. The stairs captured my attention and focus.

  12. pennygadd51 says:

    Lovely story. Romance can certainly put a fresh spring in the step!

  13. granonine says:

    Yay! You saw the jacket too 🙂

  14. A very nice story and in so so few words. I didn’t see the jacket!

  15. Archon's Den says:

    I’m only going to leave half a com…. 😉

  16. Perhaps it is his calling card. Very observant.

  17. Clever, I completely missed the jacket, whereas he obviously didn’t!

  18. Dale says:

    Oooh! I love where you took this, Di!
