8th April 1944: Easter planting

8 Sat. Rather cold, becoming milder; cloudy, chilly wind. In morning to shop locally; met Mrs. Akroyd. To Morden in afternoon to buy fish and a few other things. Short visit to Len Garrod. Dug up and divided lychnis* roots and planted them in deeply dug and prepared bed.

*silene coronaria, from the carnation family.... or rose campion, dusty miller, or here in the UK, lychnis coronaria. (Photo: J J Harrison - New South Wales, Australia - via Wikipedia.)
