It was a very fine day. The wind is from the WS and is much cooler. It was a busy day with me as I am going to Warkworth tomorrow, I got two loads of firewood, cut the grass on the garden path, took up a clump of Jonquils near the front gate and re planted them, planted out 2 Zinnias, 3 Yellow Cornflowers & 2 Mauve do & 4 Antirrhinums. Willie sowed broadcast John Bull Turnips with manure in the potato ground the topside of the house, and also in the upper side of the strawberry bed which have died out. In the evening Willie & Mrs Simpson went down to meet the steamer.
