10th May 1945: lack of cat food... German subs surrender
10 Thur. Very mild to rather warm: some hazy sunshine. Got the groceries and also to the butchers. Cycled to Merton, Wimbledon and Morden but could not buy food for Dinky: had to open a tin of pilchards. Further tuning to the piano. Sowed seeds of aquilegia. German submarines are surrendering and are being taken to British ports. First roses out on the climbing Mme. Edouard Herriot rose at the front door. Several fire-engines went ringing their way towards a huge red glow in the night sky which seemed to be somewhere at the end of Grand Drive.
