It was a cloudy day & very cool. I got up at 5pm and picked a collection of flowers for the Matakana Show, met John and Mrs Greenwood at our gate at 7am and they drove me to Matakana, we picked up May Dunning at their gate, we arrived there at 9am & arranged my flowers. John Greenwood and I had a good look at the Anglican Church. Mr Richards showed us round & explained everything to us, had dinner at Sinclair’s, met a lot of old friends I knew. My flowers only gained second prize. The show inside was very good considering the dry season. I arrived home at 8pm.
