June 27, 1852

in Thoreau’s Journal: 

I still perceive that ambrosial sweetness from the meadows in some places.  Give me the strong, rank scent of ferns in the spring for vigor, just blossoming late in the spring.

A healthy and refined nature would always derive pleasure from the landscape. As long as the bodily vigor lasts, man sympathizes with Nature.
