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.
