6th May 1944: weather poor, trees wonderful
6 Sat. Very cool, dull, cold east wind. To Morden and Merton to buy a few things. Finished putting up double row of bean sticks and planted second sowing of beans. Cycle ride to Wimbledon and Morden in evening - very cheerless too as regards weather but the trees and flowers are wonderful. Chestnuts, red and white may, laburnum, viburnum all in bloom, azaleas and wisteria are lovely. Doris stayed the night. In afternoon posted letter to Cousin Maud.
