are various new reflections now of the light, viz. from the under sides
of leaves (fresh and white) turned up by the wind, and also from the
bent blades (horizontal tops) of rank grass in the meadows, a sort of
bluish sheeny light, this last. Saw a wild rose from the cars in
Weston. The early red roses are out in gardens at home.

To Gowing's Swamp.
I notice interrupted ferns, which were killed, fruit and all, by the frosts of the 28th and 29th of May, now coming up afresh from the root. The barren fronds seem to have stood it better.
See in a meadow a song sparrow's nest with three eggs, and another egg just buried level with the bottom of the nest. Probably it is one of a previous laying, which the bird considered addled. I find it to be not at all developed, nor yet spoiled.
