13th April 1944: the bleeding heart in front garden

13 Thur. Mild, very dull, some light showers. To Wimbledon to buy fish. Cherry trees are in bloom, the ornamental ones are lovely. The  very deep prunus is at its best; it is one of the loveliest of all flowering trees. Planted dieltra* in front garden. More repairs to the lawn. Weeded a side path with a view to re-making. Aunt Liza called.

Note: dieltra... the bleeding heat, also known at times as dicentra, diclya, eucapno. See this link to 'The Duchess of Dirt' for a good description, photos and the changing names.
