The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted

Summary: A collection of drabbles, mostly based on the weekly prompts at tw100. Mostly Jack/Ianto as that's what I write, but no doubt other Torchwood characters will pop in from time to time. All genres are possible, but expect mainly humour and fluff, because that's usually what comes out when I write. All are 100 words exactly in Word, but apparently not here!

The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 722: Budding Gardener
Author's Notes: My third drabble for Challenge 339: Green at tw100.

Summary: Meriel loves flowers.

Meriel loved flowers with their bright colours and wonderful scents, so Ianto and Jack had given her a patch of garden all her own; Jack had helped her dig the ground and Ianto had shown her how to sow seeds.

She’d watered the bare brown earth every day and after a week, like magic the first tiny green shoots had come through.

By the time summer arrived, the plants were fully-grown. Pink, yellow, blue, orange, red and purple, their flowers looked like a rainbow fallen to earth, scattered among green leaves.

They were the prettiest things Meriel had ever seen.
