26th June 1945:

26 Tues. Very mild, very cloudy and overcast. To Cheam where I got some meat this time. Saw Mrs. Hopkins in the queue and spoke to her. To the butchers. Took batteries to be charged and got a paper. Laurie called; there are now some pops on the tree and he popped them

Note: back in 1943 I asked:
Can anyone identify the "pop tree"? I recall it had light green seed pods perhaps a couple of inches long which went "pop" and burst if you squeezed them - no doubt a means of seed dispersal.

Note 2: Wisteria has been suggested, and sweet peas...
