Sunday Morning. -To Trillium Woods.
Apples and cherry trees begin to look green at a distance.
I see the catkin of a female Populus tremuloides far advanced, i.e., become large like the willows. These low woods are full of the Anemone nemorosa, half opened at this hour and gracefully drooping,-sepals with a purple tinge on the under side, now exposed. They are in beds and look like hail on the ground, their now globular flowers spot the ground white. Saw a Maryland yellow-throat, whose note I have heard before - the little restless bird that sits low, -i. e. on low bushes. The golden senecio, ragwort, or squaw-weed (Senecio aureus), whose lower or radical leaves, roundish and crenate, somewhat resemble the cowslip early in the meadows, has now got up six inches high and shows purple buds. It is the plant whose stem when broken yields that sweet scent. Low blueberry bushes and high are well budded to bloom.
