Oxfordin kasvitieteellisessä puutarhassa - In the Walled Garden


Springtime impressions from Oxford, UK





Hei ja mukavaa maanantaita! :)

Tänään palataan Oxfordin yliopiston kasvitieteellisen puutarhan näkymiin. Tästä linkistä avautuu teille jo tuttu, yksityiskohtainen kartta, mutta alla oleva, opaskirjasesta kuvattu kartta on siitä mukava, että siinä puutarha aukeaa suoraan silmien eteen, kun puutarhaan tullaan sisälle.  Seuraavassa postauksessa tulee olemaan hieman laajempia näkymiä puutarhasta; tässä postauksessa ihastellaan muuripuutarhan kukkivia kasveja (toukokuun toisella viikolla). 1600-luvulta peräisin olevat muurit (mustat viivat kartassa) luovat puutarhaan lempeän mikroilmaston - opaskirjasen mukaan kasvit kukkivat puutarhassa kolmisen viikkoa aikaisemmin kuin Arboretumissa (noin 10 km kaupungista etelään päin).

(Aiemmissa postauksissa on vierailtu puutarhan kasvihuoneissa ja talvipuutarhassa.)

Kultasateen kukinta alkoi olla jo ohi. Puutarhan väki kutsuu lääkekasvien kokoelmassa olevaa puuta "Lewisin Laburnumiksi"... poliisisarjasta tutun komisarion, ei kirjailija Carrollin mukaan. :) Selvästikin täytyy kerrata Lewis-sarjan jaksoja.

Kultasade-kuvan yläpuolella oleva kasvi nauratti minua ja nimesin sen jättiläistilliksi. (Rakastan tilliä.) Se voisi olla Ferula communis, välimerenkeltaputki, jota kutsutaan myös jättiläisfenkoliksi, vaikkei se fenkoli (Foeniculum) olekaan - sarjakukkaiskasvien heimosta toki molemmat.





Kirjolupiinithan ovat mestariteoksia kaikki. :) 
Aurinkoista uutta viikkoa! Have a lovely week ahead!

  3. A walled garden seems mysterious somehow, like the Forbidden City in Beijing. I am sure that behind the walls there were many secrets, but all delightful!

  4. There are some rather special flower photographs amongst those. It appears to be a rather different garden from the one I know in Cambridge.

  9. Hej Sara!

    Tack skall du ha för denna härliga promenad i den vackra miljön! Du fångar motiven så vackert och det är en konst, en svår konst vill jag påstå efter alla år jag försökt avbilda min trädgård. Du ger mig inspiration med dina läckra bilder.

    Kram!

    1. Thank you very much for your comment, Aritha!
      Sorry for the late reply. Do you mean the second photo after the map? The plant should be a Calycanthus floridus, originally from Northern America.

  15. Just the words "walled garden" evoke a sense of warmth and sunlight, of growing things and mystery. Your photos of the walled garden flowers and plants are just lovely, Sara. Happy June days to you.

  19. The pink flowers look like crepe paper, so delicate and pretty. Spring is beautiful in your area, Sara. And your photos of all the different flowers really show the beauty of this season. It's getting hot here, in the 90's, and Summer is starting.

    Happy June days.

  26. I love all of the fabulous photos in your latest post, Sara, but my favourites are the tulips, especially with the water drops of the fountain. :-) These shining bright colours bring a smile to my face. I love those chairs and the table. It would be great to sit there a little... :-) And the building is amazing too.
    I wish you beautiful summer days, dearest Sara! (I read that it's unusually hot in Finland. :-))
    Big hugs!

    1. Thank you for your comment, Edit! In Finland, the weather is never boring. :D We had some days of about 30 C, but now the weather has turned to unusually cold and it has been snowing in the north. :)

  27. Hi Sara, these pictures were wonderful
    of flowers. I liked to see the details.
    Your post on the 8th was also beautiful, I liked the
    shades of green of the path, the mixture of foliage
    It's super interesting. I want to work more with
    foliage in my garden.
    I loved the tulip pots!
    It sure is a beautiful ride.
    I guess I'll never get sick of seeing and
    gardens.
    Boa continuação de semana.
    Paz e Bem.

  31. Dear Sara, you shared beautiful photos in your two latest posts too.
    The pictures you took in Oxford are amazing. It must be special to study in such a wonderful, historical place.
    I loved the photos from your woodland garden so much... the flowers, the vibrating surface of the water, the birch, and that rainbow in the sky and in the lake...
    I hope the weather is nice in Finland, and you enjoy the lovely summer days. :-)
    Big hugs to you!

    1. Thank you very much, dear Edit, for your kind comment!
      Oxford is a special place... but I happen to know that your hometown is historic and very beautiful as well. :)
      It's fabulously windy here in these days. :) One small tree in a pot fell two times, but otherwise it's really refreshing.
      Big hugs!
