Next, Walking

A shrub a little like gorse, but unstickery, with stiff outthrust fingers covered with yellow blossom. Bee-flies wavering drunkenly among the fingers.

Two green dragonflies under the oak trees.

At least twelve different varieties of grass-plume, each clotted with seeds.

On a ragged row of purple batchelor buttons, five bumblebees and one mason bee.

Above the cool brown creek, more dragonflies, one of them huge and brilliant blue, cruising above the water looking very like a B-52. If B-52's could stop abruptly in the air and hover.
