Oxford 6 – The Botanic Garden

As if Oxford doesn’t have enough going for it already, it is also home to the oldest Botanic Garden in England. Now run by the university it was established in 1621 and is still enclosed by its original high wall. It’s well worth a visit even if just to escape the hustle and bustle of Oxford’s city centre for a couple of hours.

I know I’ve been a little self-indulgent including three shots of lily pads in this set of images, but I couldn’t make up my mind which to drop so I decided to include them all.

      Thanks…:0). The lily pads were my favourite – its not every day that you get to see those, well not in the UK anyway.
