Friday Fictioneers – Trees

5 April, 2013

Hello, I’m TRG and I will be suppying some Fic for your Fri. Thanks to Rochelle for this week’s prompt:

I like your feedback, I like your criticism. Speak your brains in the space provided.


My grandparents planted these trees sixty years ago, not just for themselves but for all the family, and for those yet to come. The fruit has fed us, the leaves and branches have provided shelter from sun and rain.

But recently, some of our relatives have reduced the size of the orchard. Some patches of the land have been sold, some of the trees used for firewood. It was necessary, they said, the orchard was too big. It was cold, we needed the warmth.

And now just a few trees remain. Will there be enough for this year? Or next?


  1. Love the tree picture. Feel the struggle of the orchard owner and her need to protect the trees and her heritage. Yet, physical needs of the family may have to come first. Tough decision to make and who knows what the future will bring.

Speak Your Brains!
