The Avenue

Clare Bridge

Fellows' Garden

Old Court

Cherry tree outside the Chapel

Trinity Lane


I was in Cambridge for an alumni reunion. It was a delightful evening, a chance to catch up with people I see infrequently but who lead interesting lives and are good company. Whatever we have done subsequently we share memories of three years in this beautiful college, a privilege indeed. As I walked through Old Court in the bright, cold sunshine a magpie flew from the arch to the upper storey of windows. It felt like a good omen.


  1. I do believe that the photo of the Fellow's Garden should be printed.

  2. Still, tranquil, serene - beautiful. Not sure about the magpie though - isn't it 'one for sorrow'.

  3. Not a bad place to get married really

  4. Mrs. M - I so rarely comment. In fact, I'm sure it's been over a year. But my heart so strongly urged me to comment today.... You are so blessed with such an 'eye'. Your pictures are breath-taking and inspirational. I've been in love with England for years and have wanted so badly to travel. Your 'simple' little blog satisfies my wander-lust - at least temporarily. I am grateful! Thank you.


Thank you! I love reading your comments and even though I don't always have time to reply I am really grateful to every one who joins in the conversation.
