April 2. Crown imperials begin to blow. Pronged the asparagus beds. Wheat looks well. Mrs. B. White  & Hannah White come from London.
 The widow of the Rev. Richard Yalden, Vicar of Newton Valence, who married Benjamin White, en secondes noces. Her stepson, Edmund White, succeeded Richard Yalden.
NOTE: The closest I could come to matching Gilbert White's description of April 2, 1791 with something homegrown are these photographs taken yesterday at our wondrous, just re-opened Chanticleer Gardens in Wayne, Pennsylvania (link).
Not crown imperials, asparagus or wheat, but I think these will do for now. It's a pity Chanticleer wasn't open two weeks ago when the weather was incredibly warm and spectacular. Still, it's an amazing spot, a sort of "pocket" version of Longwood Gardens and a beautiful place to stroll, read and think.
Crown imperials are spectacular. I'll try to get around to putting some up here soon.
