The Norse god of clouds and sunshine sprinkles flowers and insects wherever he goes.
Flowers sprang up under his footsteps, and bright-winged insects, like flying flowers, hovered around his head.
As we moved to a new home recently, I’ve spotted more’bright-winged insects’ than ever before, both in number and diversity. And that’s before we’ve begun carpet-bombing the garden with wild flowers.
See another triologism on bright-winged insects.
