3rd July 1945: repairs & gardening
3 Tues. Very mild, a few sunny periods. To local greengrocers and butchers. To Wimbledon to buy fish also to get the lock from Hughes who have fitted a new key to it also a new hammer shaft. To local oil shop to buy liquid ammonia and Bismarck brown stain. Re-fitted lock to book case. Did weeding and tying up in the garden. A superb rose on Norman Lambert bush; tawny orange vermilion on front of petals and pale yellow on the reverse.
