Oxford Botanic Gardens

Though very windy, it was pretty warm in Oxford — low 50s — which was wonderful!  We ventured out to the Botanic Gardens.  Much of the gardens are still dormant from winter, so I’m sure they’ll only get better, but today was lovely, nonetheless.  These are the oldest Botanic Gardens in Britain, built in 1633 and the oldest tree in the garden is an English Yew, planted in 1645, during the English Civil War.
