Daffs and bluebells and the sound of guns

Title in English
Daffs and bluebells and the sound of guns

Description
From an album of old postcards sent by a nurse, Margaret Ripley, to her mother back in England. As far as I can tell (corrections and additions welcome) this reads: "11.4.15 Had a lovely walk yesterday afternoon along the sands & again after tea along road & found a garden with daffs & bluebells all growing on the grass among trees!! The roads and canals would be quite pretty but most of the trees are cut down. The guns sounded very near it is strange how clearly from the sea they carry sound. Love Mar"
