Wednesday 21st November 1917

It was fine in the morning. The rain we had yesterday has done a great deal of good in softening the hard lumps, I was out in the garden before breakfast with the rake breaking the lumps and smoothing the surface, after breakfast I was out in the garden planting the Antirrhinum plants about a doz that Annabel Knaggs gave me, also planted out some Zinnias and a Fuchsia and some Larkspurs.

Duncan Knaggs called in the afternoon so I had to come inside, and while he was here it commenced to rain again and it rained steadily. Willie & Dave went to work, but came home in the afternoon wet through.
