23rd April 1943: Easter flowers & gunfire

Lesser Stitchwort (photo: Wikipedia)
23 Fri. Good Friday. Very mild, very cloudy and dull; gentle rain most of the day. Walk along little rail path in afternoon; saw lesser stitchwort in bloom on railway embankment. The white may is out; red may nearly so; also saw wisteria in full bloom. The sirens sounded during the rain at 10.39 p.m. Some distant gunfire, heard a machine flying towards London; all clear at 11.23 p.m.
