On Monday, I took my husband to visit my old college in Oxford. I really wanted to show him what it's like in springtime - and since I had my camera, I can show you, too.
The college is a large and imposing complex, but in my opinion the most special parts are not the buildings but the gardens. On a sunny day I would walk into the gardens (round ) and sit on the grass with my books. In my view you could hardly have a more perfect environment for studying - but I was often the only one studying in the gardens. Perhaps that's just because the croquet lawn was so much more popular!
So, welcome to New College (so new, it was established in 1379). I hope you can see why I loved these gardens.
