John Muir Historic Site

Matt and I arrived a bit late (too much browsing in antique shops in Martinez) and knew the sun would not stay for long. The orchard has some lovely bright green grass and leafless trees standing in formation. If you can make it next week and haven't been inside, remember to go into the house and take a look – great views from the top and some huge traditional landscapes on display plus, lots of info from the docents.

I kept wondering how long the grass will stay this green and really enjoyed the strange grays and pinks of the bare branches against the dark evergreens.

  1. Lovely, lovely painting. I like it much more than mine! The afternoon light is fantastic. You used the right green. The trees feel very delicate, just like in the actual orchard.
