Tuesday 30th April 1940

Mild, getting cooler. Dull, to very dismal, heavy rain all afternoon. Turned over almost half the garden; planted some beans. Short walk in evening; met Dorothy in the street, she smiled at me. Edie Bennett called in evening. She said that Connie has just got a baby boy. The double pink cherry blossom in front of St Mathews Church is like fairyland. Saw also a wonderful pink magnolia also a bird-cherry tree in bloom in Lambton Road.

On this day Germans advancing north from Oslo linked with units around Trondheim, taking the rail yards at Dombas.
