Mrs. Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus Week 36

For this week's Saturday Centus, Mrs. Jenny Matlock would like us to write up to 100 words from a picture, the one shown above. (Read her full instructions at the end. ) Here is my SC-text for week 36:

Jon admired Linnaeus, but even more, he admired Sara, who knew a lot about plants. Jon planted orange seeds in pots and nursed them until they were small trees. Fifteen, in fact. Was it time to ask Sara to see these beauties? Or would she think him too forward? Maybe if he put them on the balcony, she would see them from the street as she passed by.

He moved them.

Time passed. It was soon Christmas, and he still had not asked Sara to stop by. The orange trees were still on the balcony. Under a layer of snow.

Best wishes,

Here it is! Week thirty-six and a brand New Year for a Centus. I will comment on last weeks links sometime this weekend...I have my story to post first, though, and I never read until I've written...I feel like I'm cheating otherwise!
Since it's a New Year and all, I'm thinking what better way to start then by exercising our brains! (and five more, and four more, and three more...)
This week, there is no prompt! You're going to write from a picture!
Still 100 PG rated words and a story of your choosing - fact, fiction, or poetry and try mighty hard to visit the other links!

You have the entire week to link your work to the meme and you can link more than one story if you like. Please display link button or just a hyper-link back to Saturday Centus. Be careful to link your SC URL to the Linky and not just link to your main blog.
Try to visit each one because there are some amazing writers participating in this meme and the stories are so short it is a fun and quick read. Please e-mail me directly with ???'s or ask your question in a comment and I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible. Link anytime between now and next Saturday morning.
