shining now & I have spent the

last half hour exploring the

garden finding fruit & eating 

cherries. The orderlies have pulled

a quart of black currant & about

twice as many of red & white

currants. We shall have a 

variety of stewed currants to-night

& white cherries for dessert.

two fine days - one for cleaning

up & the other for moving.
