Transcription

April Monday 29 1895 Everything & everybody rejoicing over the rain. The valley is now very beautiful. Vines with shoots 1 to 2 ft [feet] long. Wood chopping done at last & hauled. Rodgers Ranch looks better.

Tuesday 30 Lovely weather. A pair of wrens building nest in woodpile. The second this year so far. Wind howling with rainy tone.

Wednesday 1 Cloudy. Rain at 11 AM til [until] 3 PM. Another few showers & every leaf rejoicing.

Thursday 2 Dry but cloudy. Finished planting fence Cherokee rose hedge. Gophers in destructive abundance eating off entire tops of vines. I suppose on account of the absence of weeds especially clover & alfileria of which they are fond also the three species of mustard.
