28-29th March 1946: churchyard blooms
28 Thur. Mild, fine sunny day: the nicest day this year, so far. Bought a few things locally in morning also to Merton. Saw dear Mother’s grave: the blue scillas are lovely but the daffodils are not out yet. The lesser celandine made a bright show in the churchyard and I picked a few blooms to show Gwennie when she called with Donald in afternoon. Sowed Webbs Wonderful lettuce in garden, also applied naphtha lime and replanted a golden rod.
29 Fri. Very mild, lovely sunny day. Got the usual provisions including a nice piece of veal. To Merton to buy cod cutlets, two pieces for 1/8. Gwennie and Donald called wearing boat race favours Gwennie Cambridge and Donald Oxford. Dug up, divided and replanted an ox-eye daisy and a golden rod root.
