Late Winter Flowers

The flowers of late winter and early spring occupy places in our hearts well out of proportion to their size.

Gertrude S. Wister, Hardy Garden Bulbs, 1964

Fragile Delicacy

Many of the phenomena of Winter are suggestive of an inexpressible tenderness and fragile delicacy. We are accustomed to hear this king described as a rude and boisterous tyrant; but with the gentleness of a lover he adorns the tresses of Summer.

Henry David Thoreau

Walden, 1854.

Early Morning Walk

An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.

Henry David Thoreau, Journal, 1840

When You Take the World on Foot

Bill Bryson, A Walk in the Woods, 1998
