Famous quotes containing the words planting, cherry and/or tree:
“The mode of clearing and planting is to fell the trees, and burn once what will burn, then cut them up into suitable lengths, roll into heaps, and burn again; then, with a hoe, plant potatoes where you can come at the ground between the stumps and charred logs; for a first crop the ashes suffice for manure, and no hoeing being necessary the first year. In the fall, cut, roll, and burn again, and so on, till the land is cleared; and soon it is ready for grain, and to be laid down.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“Lay down, lay down the bigly bier,
Lat me the dead look on;

O ae sheave o your bread, true-love,
An ae glass o your wine,
For I hae fasted for your sake
These fully day [is] nine.”
—Anna Gordon Brown (17471810)
