Saturday 17th November 1917

It was a very hot day. Willie and Dave were working at their Kiln. My back was very much better. I was working in the flower garden all day. I finished planting all the little plants I got from Yates, viz 6 Penstemons, 5 Chrysanthemum (Tricolour). 3 Caliposis Grandiflora, 12 Pansces, and picked out in a shallow box, 6 Canterbury Bells.
