19th February 1945: coming up roses
19 Mon. Mild, very dull; calm. To Hampton’s Nurseries at Coombe Hill to buy two loganberry plants – one for Mrs. Veale, also a Duchess of Atholl rose and a Crimson Glory for her which I planted in afternoon. The other logan was for me, I also got two roses Mrs G. A. Van Rossem* and The Doctor which I also planted. I bought a climbing Mme. E. Herriot rose for Alb. Rocket at 11.45 a.m. Aunt Liza went into hospital with one of her bad attacks of asthma to-day.
