Petals in a Courtyard: April 3, 2015

All this, the trees, deer, and turf, she observed with the greatest satisfaction as if her mind had become a fluid that flowed round things and enclosed them completely.  Next minute she drew up in the courtyard, where, for so many hundred years she had come, on horseback or in couch and six, with men riding before or coming after; where plumes had tossed, torches flashed, and the same flowering trees that let their leaves drop now had shaken their blossoms.  Orlando (230)
