April 29, 1852

in Thoreau’s Journal:

The may-flower on the point of blossoming— I think I may say that it will blossom to-morrow. It is singularly unpretending—not seeking to exhibit or display its simple beauty. It is the most delicate flower both to eye & to scent as yet—


Its weather worn leaves do not adorn it. It if had fresh spring leaves it would be more famous & sought after.
