About nine in the evening a large shining meteor appeared falling from the S. towards the E. in a inclination of about 45 degrees, & parting in two before I lost sight of it.  I was in Baker’s Hill in the shrubbery, having a very bad horizon; & therefore could not see how and where it fell.

Finished cutting the St foin, which has stood full long.  The 14th crop.  Sold it to John Hale.  In some parts a good burden.

Much thunder, & vast showers to the westward.  Vast storm & rain at Winton.  These storms were very terrible at Sarum, & in the vale of the white-horse, etc.

My garden in nice order, & full of flowers in bloom.  Lilies, roses, fraxinellas, red valerians, Iris’s, &c., now make a gaudy show.

We have planted-out a vast show of annuals, which will want no watering.
