29th March 1944: mountainside in Wimbledon?

Just one of many types of dianthus.
 Fred's Mrs Simkins pinks is another example.
29 Wed. Rather cold, dismal all day, calm. Got the groceries, also sausage meat in morning. Short ride in afternoon down Copse Hill to test cycle brakes; they do hold now; hold you back coming down a mountainside. Did work in garden in afternoon. Divided up and planted out chives, did the same to Mrs. Simkins pinks. Dug over a bed and forked in some hop manure for growing onions, sowed the seed - James' Keeping. Started digging over a rose bed. There is still a pale little rose at the front door, also a few tiny buds showing that have grown this year.
