Every week, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields (thank you, Rochelle!) hosts a flash fiction challenge, to write a complete story, based on a photoprompt, with a beginning, middle and end, in 100 words or less. Post it on your blog, and include the Photoprompt and Inlinkz on your page. Link your story URL. Then the fun starts as you read other peoples’ stories and comment on them!

Stirred by the early-morning chill in the air, Neil wandered to the far end of the garden. In the biodome, amaryllis flowers seared crimson in the winter sunshine.
“I don’t think I’ll work on my poetry today, Mother. I’ll walk to Grantchester, and have a pub lunch.”
“It’s cold, dear. You’ll have to wrap up warm. I’ll make you a cup of tea before you go.”
“Thank you, I’d enjoy that.”
Absent-mindedly, Neil wandered indoors, sat down at his desk and picked up his pen.
His mother’s care imprisoned him, but, like the biodome, sheltered him so he could bloom.
