Wednesday, March 9th, 1864

A beautiful day, most of which I spent in the garden, which looks the better for it.  Many of the tender roses are winter killed & must be cut down.  I hope they will sprout again from the roots.  Canterbury bells are killed and things generally look unpromising.  Bulbs are coming up.  The hyacinths I planted in a pot last fall are now out in bloom, they are pretty and very sweet.  My wallflower is nicely budded & will soon be out.
Maggie took her friends to town, they went to Mrs. Dawes to tea.
