The Good Earth challenge, Gardens- 'Sweet Dreams' : Kortirion

Title: Sweet Dreams
Author: Kortirion
Character: Sam, and another
Rating: G
Source: FotR
Disclaimer: Tolkien made this garden and called it Middle-earth

He dreamt of green lawns bordered by roses, sweet herbs beneath his fingers; a space set with flowers like gems in a crown... When he woke, blinking in the cold dawn... the garden faded, only wordless longing remained. Sighing, he’d gather his bedding – perhaps there’d be time for fires and hot drinks... perhaps not.

It was all he could do to concentrate on the road, but each night - he let longing flood his soul... ‘to be back... cooling aching feet in soft grass, calming his mind with sweet herbs...’

Sam watched Strider, not realising their thoughts were near identical.
