Love time space magic 228

In a time of war, a gardener learns that the magic of plants can heal many things, but perhaps not a broken heart.

In a world that seems increasingly reliant on digital gadgets, I find it helpful to unplug sometimes and enjoy the beauty outside. This story reflects my joy in growing things, although Cecily is a much more accomplished gardener than I ever hope to be.

On a personal note, this is the first story I ever sold to an anthology. I found it a tricky market to break into, so if you are a writer who is still struggling to make your first sale, keep trying!
