5 June 1942: sun, roses & polyantheus
Polyantheus - a common name
for the genus Primula (primrose)
5 Fri. Very warm, glorious summer day. The rose at the front door is splendid. Also more roses out in back garden to-day. Divided out and planted up a long line of polyantheus. Had a talk with Mr.Honor; saw his garden and he gave me some seeds. Did all the usual shopping in the morning. The garden looks nice.
