Sunday Photo Fiction is a weekly challenge presented by my old friend Al Forbes.
The idea is to write a short story (200 word max) inspired by what you see in his picture (below).
Parks have been, for many years, a major feature of my life.
I love a Dear Green Place.

Below is an example of what I call Sound Bite Fiction.
Oh Mummy, please stop squeezing me!
Yes, of course I’m pleased to see you.
And yes, I am happy to be home.
Yes, I had a good time with Daddy.
We went to the circus, and to the zoo, saw elephants and monkeys.
Oh, and snakes, yuk!
We went out on the loch in a little boat, saw lots of birds and swans and ducks.
And some deer on an island.
We went to the Science Centre, it has those mirrors that make you a funny shape, all skinny or really fat!
And there is a great park at Daddy’s new home, with swings and statues and everything, it is lovely.
And he has a little doggie called Cheeky, Daddy says he named it after me!
And Sarah says…
Daddy’s friend, she was there too.
Yes, she lives in Daddy’s new home too.
She is really nice, and funny as well.
She laughs a lot.
And she makes me laugh a lot.
She even makes Daddy laugh a lot.
He didn’t use to laugh at all, did he, Mummy?
Aren’t you glad I’m back?
Why are you crying?
