If some people are said to have a green thumb, Homer Fulton had nothing less than a green arm. He could grow any kind of plant anywhere, make flowers bloom in the winter, and even grow grapefruits in Minneapolis.
When news spread about Homer's talents, he was booked on The Today Show. As he left home for New York, plants, bushes, and flowers were growing spontaneously wherever he walked.
"Welcome to The Today Show," said Matt Lauer, as a rose bush began sprouting from the top of his head. "To what do you attribute your amazing power?"
"Darned if I know," replied Homer, "but I wish it would stop. I'm allergic as hell to all of it!"
We'll leave Homer sneezing away in this, my weekly contribution to the Friday Fictioneers based on the picture prompt above. The other Fictioneers are also blooming with ideas, but hopefully none to make you sneeze, if you click right here.
I wonder if Matt Lauer looks better with a rose bush on his head ...
