September 10, 1851

in Thoreau’s Journal:

As I watch the groves on the meadow opposite our house—I see how differently they look at different hours of the day i.e. in dif. lights when the sun shines on them variously.


In the morning perchance they seem one blended mass of light green In the afternoon distinct trees appear—separated by heavy shadows—& in some places I can see quite through the grove.
