Prompt Time March Second

This month winter will begin turning into spring–or at least, it’s when winter is supposed to begin its transformation to spring. It seems that the warmth comes sooner every year, though the snow always returns once or twice more just to confuse people. But March is usually when it really starts to look and feel like spring. It’s not quite spring yet, but it’s almost spring.

It’s a time of change, of transformation. In a month or two everything around us will be colourful again, the leaves returned to their trees, the flowers blooming.

For now, appreciate that change. Appreciate the first time you hear the birds chattering away in the morning, the first time you see a robin. Admire that first leaf bravely growing from its tree, reaching out to the sunlight. Appreciate nature.

Today I want you to find out how one of your characters appreciates–or maybe doesn’t appreciate–nature:

Write a story in which your character is celebrating–or moaning about–the first flower they’ve seen blooming since winter.

Please post the first sentence of your response if you find the time to come back.
