Oxford Walk - Part two ....

Diane and I made our way
from the Sweet shop ..



Silk Tassel Bush.....which apparently is is a
common evergreen shrub native
to the coastal ranges of California and southern Oregon.
How far are we from there???

Towards



and then to the
Bridge ..and the river,
just a bit further down,
as you can see
by the map.

crossed the road to the Botanic gardens

didn't go in,  which we were pleased about, as
once we were around the back , we could see
lots of work going on , not many plants about at all..
Spring work taking place!


carried on to Rose Lane  .. ..



down to the river ...


and then back towards the High Street !!


Ready for a coffee , a rest and then more sightseeing!!!!

Certainly a great day out with a good friend.

More to come yet though!!!!
Hope you enjoy the small tour too. ♥

  5. Lovely photos Anne and more great memories. I have some of my photos going up, and than I will disappear for a couple of weeks while I try to get my internet connection back in France. I spent 36 minutes on the phone to them today....... Hate to know what this phone bill will be! Take care Diane x

  6. Your photos are very special, as always. I feel that I know Oxford a little bit now. I'm glad to hear that you finished off with a coffee, but it looks as if you had a marvellous day, and so good that the weather was so kind. Don't the daffodils look wonderful, and you just had to take a photo of that little boat with your name on, didn't you?! Lovely post Anne.

  7. I did enjoy the very little bit of Oxford the day I was there (13 years ago!) and really enjoyed the university. We shall do a walking tour when I come to visit, okay? :D

  12. I'm loving this wonderful stroll around Oxford with the two of you -
    and that gorgeous rowing boat with your name.
    Thanks for including the map Anne - a great idea. I visited there a few years ago and walked the High Street so I can sort of imagine your rambles.

  19. Thanks for stopping by Anne - pleased to "meet" you. We stopped off in Oxford on our way home from Southampton where I had met 2 bloggy friends. I had a great weekend. It is a lovely - and very busy city. We particularly liked "Pattiserie Valerie"!!!! xx
