April 30, 1852

in Thoreau’s Journal:

The season advances by fits & starts you would not believe that there could be so many degrees to it….Yesterday I would not have believed that there could have been such an improvement on that day as this is-–short of mid summer or June. My pocket being full of the flowers of the maple––elm &c my handkerchief by its fragrance reminded me of some— fruitful or flowery bank I know not where.
