Oxford - The Botanic Gardens



I had a very blustery trip to the Oxford Botanic Gardens on Saturday. The wind was so strong that the glasses houses were closed. However, there was still plenty to see, including this tree fern that looks like it has a sprain.


There was plenty of colour...




...and texture.




The gardens were established was founded in 1621, so as you can imagine...


...there are some lovely, large specimens.


However, it's a shame that this avenue has become overgrown, as it blocks the view down to...


...this rather fantastic urn.


It's been good to see Oxford's Jewish heritage being given more prominence in the last few years.
