11th-12th April 1946: Bovril for Dad
11 Thur. Thick white morning frost, cold morning becoming milder; the sunshine in afternoon becoming warm where there was shelter from the N wind. To butchers also to buy Bovril for Dad. Gwennie & Donald brought some meat for the cats. Dug up and divided southernwood, and a chrysanthemum, also erigeron; putting some garden compost underneath each root. Pruned Addie Veale’s roses and planted an erigeron for her.
12 Fri. Mild, some nice sunshine in afternoon but wind still N. Did all the usual shopping locally going only to Morden to buy cats meat. Divided and re-planted mauve campanula. Dug up a mass of raspberry suckers which have come through from Morriss’ next door.
