Early summer

Gijrragiessie – The Season of Growing
Early summer, the earth slowly clothes itself in green, adorns itself in the colours of the plants. Cautiously and fumbling, she stretches out into the warm air. Crops take on strength. The trees’ leaves become bolder, allowing the wind to play with them. Mosquitoes drive the reindeer herds to the upland glaciers. We prepare to move to the mountains where the calves have always stayed and where they have always grown in their protective herds.
