18 June 1942: calendulas

18 Thur. Very mild, pleasant sunny morning but dull and cloudy later. To butchers also bought fish at Merton. Also bought some very choice calendulas in pots. Ellen Feihn called also Alan Spooner.

Photo: field marigold or calendula - from Latin kalendae or first of the month - presumably because they are in bloom at the start of most months.
