This weekend my son graduated from Cambridge.
The ceremony was followed by a visit to his college.
The view from the street is just a quad and a lawn.
Closer inspection revealed a super garden.
Beautiful borders were full of bulbs and perennial flowers.
A wild flower meadow with a pond formed another area.
Some small corners were planted with exotics.
Sweeping lawns contrasted well with the wonderful architecture. These gardens provide a serene environment in which to study.
The gardeners who created these gardens must have thought of this.
It is an arduous lifestyle for students and academics.
However, the lovely setting hopefully provides a compensation.
