16th April 1943: blooming lovely
16 Fri. Warm, perfect sunny day like summer; sun 112 degrees. Did shopping in morning. To Mrs Hippel in afternoon; her wireless needs attention. Finished preparing bed for runner beans in garden and erected the row of rods to accommodate them. Lilac is out. The large double pink flowering cherry trees in front of St Matthews Church are breath-takingly lovely. Chestnut and sycamore trees are showing for bloom. Warning from 4.55 to 5.5 p.m. no incident.
