Scaffolding now erected in the back yard to effect repairs to the bell casement above the clock. The bell has been turned off for 50 years as it used to chime every quarter of an hour. The roof casing is lead and this heavy structure seems inadequately supported. The four wooden supports seem rotten but, hopefully, there is metal within them? Very inaccessible. The clock is wound once a week and runs fast in dry weather and slow in the wet so the time is never quite correct. The mechanism operates on two hessian ropes on pulleys with huge lead weights which reach down to ground level. The bell itself is dated 1813.

C sasanquas are just starting to flower. Lapagerias good. Some fuchsia as usual in the Tin Garden showing. Some rare evergreen acorns from Bruce Gardner. Too much wind for really good colour.
