March 30, 1856

in Thoreau’s Journal:

Still cold and blustering…..The spring advances in spite of snow and ice and cold even….How silent are the footsteps of spring!  ….In warm recesses in meadows and clefts, in rocks in the midst of ice and snow, nay, even under the snow, vegetation commences and steadily advances.
