To sit in the shade on a fine day and look upon verdure is the most perfect refreshment.
Honestly, I had to look up what "verdure" meant ... lol. Found out that it means "green foliage"! Really interesting to be finding something new today. But I have to agree with Jane Austen (one of my fave authors) about that quote. Staring at something green sort of calms my nerves, too. I guess it does for most people. :)
