Welcome to 2019 and Sunday Photo Fiction! Each week I will post a new photograph, taken either by myself or donated by a member of the community. The challenge is to write a story using 200 words or less based, on the prompt. When you are done, post your story and the photo prompt on your blog. Make sure you give proper credit when using the photo. Use the “Click Here to Enter” icon below to add your story to the SPF collection. While you are there, take time to read and comment on some of the other stories. I know you will not be disappointed.
If you are new to the site or flash fiction, check out the ABOUT SPF page with more information about the challenge. There is also a page called TIPS FOR BEGINNERS.
For those of you who would like to donate a photograph, the PHOTO DONATION page tells you how. And if SPF is not enough to keep the creative fires burning, the FLASH FICTION LINK page lists some of the more popular flash fiction challenges.
THANKS TO ALL OF YOU WHO MAKE THIS SITE A SUCCESS THROUGH GREAT STORY-TELLING.

Every year I tried to grow vegetables of my own, and failed. Every time! They would just die. One day the plant is green, thriving and full of life, and next day, after putting them in soil, it would slowly wilt, turn yellow and then gradually shrivel and die. It would break my heart but I did try again and again.
One day my neighbor looked over the hedge at my gardening operations and offered a word of advice.” I think you are drowning your plants” he told me. ” You are watering them too much” Really! I didn’t know you could do that. Well that year I held back on the water. And guess what! My first crop of tomatoes is coming up.
