The University of Oxford Botanic Garden: The Conservatory


Springtime impressions from Oxford, UK






Hello all! I'm back from a "pilgrimage" to Oxford, UK. :) One of my main destinations was of course the Botanic Garden. I have so many photos that I don't know where to start... :) The Conservatory was among my very favourite places. The greenhouses were lovely places to take photos, with a softer light than outside.




Hei taas! Tässä tulee ensimmäinen (monesta, todella monesta :)) postauksesta lyhyeltä Oxfordin reissultani. Hotellini sijaitsi lähellä (ei tietenkään sattumalta :)) yliopiston kasvitieteellistä puutarhaa, jonne hankin 20 puntaa maksavan "annual passin". Kävin niin usein puutarhassa sekä hieman kauempana sijaitsevassa arboretumissa, että "passi" tuli edullisemmaksi kuin päivälippujen hinnat. Kasvitieteellinen puutarha on perustettu 1621, sen laajuus on noin 1,8 ha, kasvilajeja on yli kuusi tuhatta... aivan ihana paikka siis. Oxfordin yliopiston opiskelijat pääsevät sisään ilmaiseksi.




Aurinko paistoi useimpina päivinä pilvettömältä taivaalta. Aikaiset aamut tai illat olisivat olleet mieluisimpia kuvausaikoja, mutta koska puutarha on toukokuussa avoinna 9 - 18, useimmissa kuvissa aurinko paistaa aikaa korkealta. Hieman hämyisät kasvihuoneet olivat hyvin viehättäviä paikkoja kuvaamiseen.

Tästä linkistä aukeaa puutarhan kartta, johon palaan vielä myöhemmin. Nämä kuvat on otettu viherhuoneessa (kartassa nro 5).

  1. To immerse oneself in a botanic garden anywhere is an exercise in sensory delight , and in Oxford you have the additional pleasure of all the other attractions of this wonderful historic centre of learning.

  18. Sara, it looks like your photos are a bit larger. Is there a setting you changed on your camera or blog? Such lovely pictures on here today. The tangerines made me smile, as my mom would put oranges in our stockings every Christmas. Your flowers of Spring are so pretty, Sara. I hope you are enjoying all the beauty this season brings. Your pictures capture it well. : )

  19. 🍊 Thank you! 🍊 Kiitos! 🍊 Grazie! 🍊 Tack! 🍊 Dank je! 🍊

    🍊 The photos of these Oxford posts are indeed larger than usually.
    I tend to post my photos - no matter what is their size - large or X-large (the Blogger settings).
    This time I resize them and use the "original size" setting. 🍊
