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.
