A perfect Saskatchewan summer day. Sunshine, warm, dry, windy. Shorts, barefoot in the grass, straw hat. Two gophers, one in a hole a few feet from where I sat who began to get used to the idea I was there. A big orange bumblebee. A dragonfly. The daycare kids in bright colours like flowers. Blades of grass showing lime green in the sunlight. The leaves budding out, turning the trees a hazy green. The smell of them, still sticky and sweet.
