26th January 1944: cheerful jasmine

26 Wed. Cold, very red dawn, dismal rain, but the wind has abated. Did shopping locally; met Nellie Lidbury while out. On fire duty to-night. The yellow jasmine in the garden is a cheerful sight in these dull days.

Note: there are about 200 species of jasmine. Some are used to make oil, perfume or incense. Asian women sometimes wear a jasmine flower in their hair.
