April.

 

setting the seeds somewhat straight,

we had foot dibblers to make the

holes and many varied opinions

were given by our members as to 

the best way to proceed with the

job. The ploughman came in for

many a blessing when yards of 

twisted sods were come in contact

with. in fact some encouraged

us very much by saying we may

as well put the blanky seeds in

the gory cut. However we persevered

but sorry to realise that

the appearance of those who

volunteered was becoming

gradually and beautifully less.
