Yesterday was a beautiful spring day. Almost didn't need my turtleneck and sweater and jacket. It was sunny and there were groups of students out on New Kings Lawn. There were several groups including a group with a guitar. Obviously and spontaneously enjoying the almost warm spring day! Or were they? take a gander at the left side of the picture. Do you see the professional camera? And the pile of rucksacks at its foot? YES! Photo ops for the new brochures. There were also a number of fully kilted men and a bagpiper playing. I don't know what their function was – they didn't seem to be related to the casual students lounging spontaneously on the lawns.
Be that as it may, I decided to walk home through the botanical gardens. I even found a map and meandered through the little (I mean little like deerpaths) trails.
I am always captivated by trees with yellow flowers. I don't recall seeing any of those in my own country although there were quite a lot in Kenya and now here.
Some little spring flowers.
Here it is from the other side.
This whole garden is just through the natural science building on the other side of the street from my flat. It could be a really nice place to spend the summer.
