Summer Series – Where Are The Flowers?


Groundskeeper’s Apprentice, my new job.
I was proud but, a problem soon arose.
The pay sucked.

To make ends meet, I began collecting the fresh blooms left by mourners,
selling them back to local florists, who resold them again.

Repurpose, Reuse, Recycle

  1. I don’t think that the deceased would have an issue with their flowers being used to feed a poor groundskeeper. Like they say, money needs to be spread around to make things grow! I like the practicality of this piece.

      Good to see you here Marcy.

  2. Yep, I’m all for the 3 Rs! Creative direction with the prompt, and I admire how you’ve grabbed my sympathy for this character in so few words.
