August Saturday 1st

It was very fine in the morning and early part of the afternoon and the ground was drying up nicely, but later in the afternoon it came on a misty rain. Willie was cutting tea tree in the forest and I was helping him until my slasher handle broke and I had to knock off. Grace & Jane went to see Mrs Ashworth in the morning, Mrs Simpson came from Ti Point and met them there and all of them returned here late in the afternoon.
In the afternoon I sowed seeds of the following in a box. Dimorphotheca. Double Pink Godetia. Calliopsis Drummondii and Guillardia (mixed).
