Can you explain what is in bold please?

The ground was hard, the air was still, my road waslonely; I walked fast till I got warm, and then I walked slowly to enjoy and analyse the species of pleasurebrooding for me in the hour and situation. It was three o’clock; the church bell tolled as I passed under the belfry: the charm of the hour lay in its approaching dimness, in the low-gliding and pale-beaming sun. I was a mile from Thornfield, in a lane noted for wild roses in summer, for nuts and blackberries in autumn, and even now possessing a few coral treasures in hips and haws, but whose best winter delight lay in its utter solitude and leafless repose.

    She is describing different kinds of wild fruit that she saw on her way. She liked the way the lane looked at that time of the year.
