The dark substance shifted, forming itself under the direction of her fingers. Sarah breathed in the warm spring air and smiled. At the same time, she took her spade and bore small holes into the rich earth, taking its moistness as good sign. If the soil was any indication, the flowers would turn out to be lovely this summer. Her eyes closed and her mind was flooded with visions of herself walking through the garden's winding dirt path, surrounded by the lush growths. Not for the first time, she was grateful that she'd chosen this home with a three-acre lot – even if the house itself needed repairs. Which reminded her, she needed to head back up to Home Depot later and pick up some more white paint; one can hadn't gotten her halfway across the wraparound porch. And the shudders would need a coat or two, as well…
Sometime later she forced herself back to the task at hand, finishing the holes and reaching over her side to pick up the packet of seeds. She had – after much inner debate – chosen snapdragons this time. They would be difficult to manage in this thick Georgia heat, but if she did it just right, they'd grow into this incredible shade of maroon. They'd compliment the lilies well.

Author's Note: Hey guys. I need to know if you all are interested in the possibility of this story. I've got the ideas for it and the desire to create it, but if none of you really like the premise there's not too much point. I'm working on honing my skills as a writer, and to do that I need to be writing things that people want to read (and, incidentally, will feel attached to enough to review with suggestions for improvement)… Anyway, thanks for reading.
