Sun 28 Sept 1941: dahlias very fine

Between very mild and rather warm, lovely sunny morning but deteriorating until heavy rain at night. Walk in Holland Gardens* in evening; the dahlias are very fine; the variety of form and colouring is superb.
*Note: Holland Garden was a gift to the people of Merton from Lady Holland in 1928. Sir Arthur and Dame Mary Catherine Barbara Holland were well-known and highly respected residents in Wimbledon, well known for the tireless service to the local community. (From Merton Council website.)
