Helen used to feel along the square stiff boxwood hedges, guided by the sense of smell that would find the first violets and lilies. After throwing a fit of temper, she hid her hot face in the cool leaves and grass. She wandered happily from spot to spot, until she came upon the beautiful vine which covered the tumble-down summer-house at the farther end of the garden. The roses, the heart-satisfying and the loveliest of all the roses found in the greenhouses of the North, used to hang in long festoons from the porch of the house, filling the whole air with their fragrance, untainted by any earthy smell.
Soem of the things which were later told to her were that she imitated the people she encountered with. She showed signs of talking at an early age of six months by saying, "How d'ye" and surprised everyone by saying, "Tea, tea, tea" quite clearly. This impressive feat attravted everyone's attention. Being the first child, she garnered care and attention, so much that there were discussiona on what to name her; the first child was not supposed to be lightly named. Even at the start of the illeness, she was able to pronounce 'water' and make sounds for that word. She even started walking at the day she turned one.
