Here we all are another week. Today we’re sitting on a virtual lawn viewing a virtual bed of daffodils and crocuses. Our hostess for this gathering is the gracious and talented author and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. We’re the Friday Fictioneers group. Our challenge this week and every week is to write an original story with no more than 100 words. It’s supposed to have a beginning, middle, end, and follow the picture prompt for the week. This week’s prompt was supplied by The Reclining Gentleman. Thanks, R.G.
To read the other stories by the group, just click on the link given below, then on the little blue frog in the blue box.

SPRING By P.S. Joshi
Ruth understood she might not live until spring. The doctors tried every procedure available to purge her cancer. She had to wait.
They explained if she survived until April there was hope of full remission.
Her husband and two grown children prepared. Now to her, it wasn’t a wait for the first day of April but for visible signs of spring. The watch was on for crocuses and daffodils, birds and butterflies, and rain showers.
Early one morning there they were in the prepared beds–the yellow daffodils and red crocuses. New hope surged through her. Many springs were ahead.
