“I guess he goes the extra mile for your love, huh?” I said as my son Rio darted by on his bike.
“He knows how to win a girl’s heart,” she replied.
“What’s that you got?” Rio asked.
“It’s a daffodil,” she said. “Want to smell it?”
Rio took a big whiff and announced, “It smells like a peach!”
The man smelled it and nodded to his wife: “It does!”
Rio and I left them to go watch the muddy water roar below and to see a great blue heron make gawky graceful.
When we walked back to his bicycle later, we found the yellow daffodil lying artfully across the seat.
