Meme: Teaser Tuesdays

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My teaser is:

"The rush of sap in the veins of the trees could almost be heard.  The flowers of late April took up a position unseen, and looked as if they had been blooming a long while, though there had been no trace of them the day before yesterday; birds began not to mind getting wet."

My teaser was taken from page 150 of my current read-- The Woodlanders, by Thomas Hardy, Everyman's Library hardcover edition, Alfred A. Knopf, 1997, pp. 411.

So far, this is a beautifully written novel of a small group of characters living their lives deep in Hardy's fictional Wessex woods of southwestern England. Gorgeous imagery throughout!
