Rain during last night, fine & fairly warm during the morning, some showers this evening. Wild plum tree has plenty of blossom on it. Saw large flock, about 100, of what appeared to be turtle doves, sitting on telephone wires. Presumably migrants which had just arrived. Planted out 2 doz. antirrhinums (dark & flame) & 1 doz. stocks (mixed). Paid 8d a doz. – very expensive, but it is rather early. Price of sodium chlorate now 101 /2° lb (before the war 8 d).
18 eggs. Sold 1/2 score @ 2/6. Total this week: 117.
Dandelions flowering, also dead nettle.
