On the fingers they left a green scent rushes have a separate scent of green, so, too, have ferns, very different to that of grass or leaves.

From the earth they had drawn its moisture, and made the ditch dry some of the sweetness of the air had entered into their fibres, and the rushes-the common rushes-were full of beautiful summer. The white pollen of early grasses growing on the edge was dusted from them each time the hawthorn boughs were shaken by a thrush. These lower sprays came down in among the grass, and leaves and grass-blades touched. Smooth round stems of angelica, big as a gun-barrel, hollow and strong, stood on the slope of the mound, their tiers of well-balanced branches rising like those of a tree. Such a sturdy growth pushed back the ranks of hedge parsley in full white flower, which blocked every avenue and winding birds-path of the bank. But the gix, or wild parsnip, reached already high above both, and would rear its fluted stalk, joint on joint, till it could face a man.
