Thoreau for your Saturday…

The red clover heads are now turned black.It is but a short time that their rich bloom lasts.The white is black or whithering also.Whiteweed still looks white in the fields.Blue-eyed grass is now rarely seen.The grass in the fields and meadows is not so fresh and fair as it was a fortnight ago.It is dryerand riper and ready for the mowers.Now June is past.June is the month for grass and flowers.Now grass is turning to hay…The red-topped grass is in its prime,tingeing the fields with red.July 6,1851-Journal.
