FFfAW – My Pretty Garden

My backyard is my favorite place to sit. I enjoy sitting out in the open air and reading a book or hosting my friends with a cup of coffee or tea. I spend many enjoyable moments in my backyard. There were many great memories made in my backyard garden “room.”

That changed when I met Cecilia. I enjoyed her company and liked her right away. I felt we would become good friends and spend many hours enjoying each other's company in my backyard. Little did I know that she was trying to get rid of me and take over my home and my pretty backyard.

I had to kill her. Too bad. We could have been good friends.

      • I still remember it. I love a well mowed, and trim yard. This looks like a wonderful place to talk, gather to eat, or a place to do some reading. In the early morning it would be delightful.

        • Yes, it would be delightful in the morning! Keeping a lawn like that is very time consuming and costly. Well worth it though if you have the time and money.

          • I don’t have the money, or the time. I love a well, groomed yard. Some have the money, and others take the time and save their money. I would think this would not get out of hand. I used to mow the lawn, but with my pacemaker, I’m not mowing any more. Smile.

  1. Now that’s disturbing (but good). i wonder what the killer did with the body – I can’t imagine it’s buried in the garden – that might spoil the perfect lawn.

  2. LOL!!! OMG you are hilarious! I did not see that coming…I laughed right out loud. Don’t mess with PJ!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Joy, I Love your story… ๐Ÿ™‚ Ha! Ha! I didn’t realize we were on the same page! Just barely getting this one in before the deadline and beginning to read others. I really enjoy participating in the challenges and appreciate you posting them each week.

  4. This is funny PJ in dark way. Reminds of the words ‘eat or be eaten.’ If she didn’t kill her friend, her friend would have killed her. I like how she is slow blasรฉ about but regrets that they got along so well. Nice twist and great story!

I would love to read your thoughts...
