But perhaps one of the greatest charms of an early country walk is derived from the pleasant scent of the air. The honey-suckle, the field convolvulus, and the violet, diffuse a fragrance so soft and grateful that the most delicate nerves are refreshed. The ground newly turned up by the plough has a very pleasant smell in the morning; even the grass and the green leaves have the fresh spring-like scent, which though it scarcely amounts to perfume, yet has a very pleasing influence. Surely the sweet scents of spring and summer, and the elastic bounding of our untired spirits on a fine morning, speak of the kindness of God, and ought to inspire that cheerful'.and grateful emotion which is a welcome tribute of love and admiration to Him who designed them for our enjoyment.-Anne PrattFile:Carl Rüdell Der Pflüger.jpg
