Good Wednesday, my Readers. I’ve been struggling with this image for HOURS! So. Yeah. Published it, not satisfied so have re-written it. Those of you who read the original… I hope I can redirect you back!
Thank you, always, to Rochelle for keeping us all in line, for being there week after week with yet another challenge. And this week, tormenting us with her own picture. Thanks, Buddy!
If you want to play along, get your creative juices going and write a 100-word story (not including the title) with a beginning, middle and end. That means, that is stands alone, peeps! Then, once you are satisfied, click on the blue frog and add your link. It’s fun, addictive and really challenges one to cut the crap!

Out of the Ash
I watched in horror as they cut down my favourite tree – OUR tree.
“I’m sorry, Lady, no choice. Bad case of EAB – Emerald Ash Borer.”
“And you’re sure there was nothing else we could do to save it?”
“Unfortunately, no. Was too far gone. Just plant another one.”
“You don’t understand. It’s not just a tree. It was our tree. Now they are both gone.”
He looked at me with kindness. “Hang on, we’re not supposed to, but would you like some of these pieces?”
I hugged him in gratitude. “I know exactly how I shall honour both.”
Trees in my ‘hood are being cut down left, right and centre because of this bloody bug…
Designs that destroy
Canopy in peril
Saved – a rarity
