27th April 1944: night of warnings... but oh what a lovely day

27 Thur. Rather warm; perfectly lovely sunny day.Warning at 2.5 a.m. One machine from S. to N. It was picked up in the searchlights when it threw out two Verey lights, one red, one orange; it proved to be friendly; all clear at 2.30 a.m. Further warning at 4.48 a.m. Heard the sound of planes flying very high and that was all there was to it: all clear at 5.25 a.m. To Morden in afternoon, bought fish, also a packet of Russell Lupin seeds at Woolworths. Sowed poppy seeds in evening, also planted a few aquilegis. Preparing ground and a screen of sticks for the summer beans which will be sown soon.
