Sabbath, March 27th, 1864

I went with Sarah to Sabbath school & church -- Mr. Curtis preached.  All this family attended.  Mrs. Dawes & Lucy were both suffering from influenza & could not go.  My wallflower which I have kept all winter in my room is now in full bloom & very fragrant.  The hyacinths which I planted in a pot last October have been in bloom nearly a month and are still pretty & sweet though beginning to fade.  We have a single Camelia in bloom in the pits, & some English violets.  But the garden presents little appearance of spring, only crocuses & the early yellow pipes are out.  The season is very backward.
