I said I would post about going to the Cambridge University Botanical Garden, so here are a few photos and notes from last Tuesday.
Our guide, June, talking to us about Hobson's culvert which brought clean drinking water into the city in the early 17th century. He is also the Hobson of "Hobson's choice" which is really no choice at all.
The garden is, of course, lovely, if a bit bare in the winter.
The first bulbs, snowdrops, are up, at least in a few warm places.
In the garden we had an Australian guide who knew a lot about the garden. She kept telling us we have to come back every week to see it all change.
There was great color in the winter garden.
