The blossom and the ziggurat collide

OUT HERE, in the wild wastes of Oxford, you see many a sight. So here is a blossoming tree with snow, and behind it the great ziggurat called the Said Business School. The wasteland beyond the fence is scheduled for development and the birds and the bees are feeling a bit parky. Also, Facebook is crap when you want to put up pictures, so I am doing it this way. Long live WordPress! ♦

Spring comes to Oxford

THE WEATHER has been jolly nice the last couple of days. Here’s a tree in blossom on the cycle path on the way to North Hinksey – a 10 minute walk or so from where I live. The Fishes is quite a nice pub too.  There’s a Norman kirk a stone’s throw from the pub, and ye olde thatched cottages

Oxford mistletoe, and spring

JUST AS you head down the High Street in Oxford to St Clemens, there’s an old hulk of a tree festooned with mistletoe.

And the blossom continues to bloom in Oxford, in the spring. This shot on the Woodstock Road, just south of Bevington Road.  

Spring reaches Oxford

IT’S WONDERFUL to wake up to blue skies and cherry blossom outside your bedroom window. Bumblebees are flying, the Wren is singing beautifully out there, and the Blue Tits have just fledged. The weather’s been lovely for the last two days, none of that wet stuff Oxford is renowned for. ♦
