and we always take our own over for she enjoys seeing them all so much.It has rained several times lately and today there is a regular storm, it will be awful for the grapes for they are already cracking badly, but everything else is beautifully fresh and clean and clean and the grass is springing up everywhere.Cousin Fannie has been here a week and will stay the rest of the month with us, she is a good walker and as several Martinez girls have come out to climb the hills with us we have had some fine long walks. Last Saturday eleven of us went over to the big Laurel, the views were grand, we could see3the Sierras very clearly and the flowers and ferns are just starting up now. On another walk we found a little canyon back of Ferndale where there were thirty or forty quite large maple trees with red and yellow leaves, how beautiful whole forests must look in such gorgeous dress.I received a letter from Margaret Muir a few days ago, she was very anxious to have you visit them in St Paul and said that if you would come there, they would send "Helen Muir" to the train to meet you.blasting and 09158
