More Thoreau for your Monday…

How rapidly new flowers unfold! as if Nature would get through her work too soon. One has as much as he can do to observe how flowers successively unfold. It is a flowery revolution, to which but few attend. Hardly too much attention can be bestowed on flowers. We follow, we march after, the highest color; that is our flag, our standard, our “color”. Flowers were made to be seen, not overlooked. Their bright colors imply eyes, spectators. Journal-June 15, 1852.
