19th April 1945: spring has sprung, the cuckoo's sung
19 Thur. Not quite so warm as yesterday owning to a light breeze but lovely bright sunshine all day. Bought aquilegia, poppy and scarlet runner seeds. Met Aunt Hannah, cousin Ivy and little Barbara. Ivy looked extremely well and the little girl is a picture. To Wimbledon to buy fish; also bought sausage meat and leeks locally. Dug over and applied fertiliser to ground to be used for runner beans. Chestnut, lilac, laburnum, may, wistaria, cydonia, apple blossom etc. are all out lovely, Ciss has heard the cuckoo. Many of my roses have flower buds on them.
