Daylight walk, Friday Night With Friends, Makings
I promised you last time the same walk as the moonlight walk but in the day. This is the path across Marston Meadows.
A lot more of the photos came out so this will have to be a part 1. A lot of the ice in the ditches at the side of the path had melted.
Parson’s Pleasure- see previous post for details.
The rollers for punts so they can go from one level of the river to another.
WordPress still isn’t recognising portrait photos, but this is a beautiful tree in Uni Park.- details in previous post.
In the early Victorian period, this was sheep and cattle grazing with elm trees. Many other varieties have since been planted (1865 onwards) which can cope with poor soil.
Dogwood (Cornus alba) really makes a stunning display at this time of the year when there is so little colour.
Rainbow Bridge a graceful 1923-4 construction.

These birds all took off at once, I was lucky to get a photo.
The duck pond created in 1925.
The cricket pavilion designed by Sir Thomas Jackson, who had a hand in how Oxford looks today.
This is the only first class cricket ground where you can watch for free in England.
Keble College- see link in previous post.
Natural History Museum. Want to go inside next time?
Here’s what I’ve been making this week- a cardi for my daughter in a darker blue than pictured.
A second pair of Aino Sibelius mittens as designed by the wife of Sibelius, as sold in a kit by The Flying Mitten Jarvenpaa, Finland.
I am feeling a bit like I have broken through a glass ceiling having finally finished Pumpkinville 7 by Bunny Hill Designs. This block has waited for months and months. I thought of it as a wip but it was really a UFO.
Last night was Friday Night With Friends, (42 of us if you want to see) so I prepared Pumpkinville 8 to be needle turned that evening. I didn’t have time for the embroidery but at least all the shapes are on.
