It’s Friday Fictioneer time. In spite of a difficult and busy time, with humour, our fearless leader Rochelle picks a photo prompt for a story with a beginning, a middle, and an end in 100 words. Today it’s a cheeky bowl full of nosegays, thanks to Ted Strutz.

Wow… It’s a one street town.

… Right… He recycles too.
