Canal colour

          It’s a bit grey here again today when looking through the photos still to be sorted on the laptop, I found this pretty picture of some irises at the side of the Oxford Canal, almost at the Oxford end where the boats have long-term moorings.

Canal conservatories

         Looking back at the pictures of canal gardens from the Kidlington to Oxford stretch of the Oxford canal I really couldn’t pick my favourites to put on here so I’ve put all that I haven’t shown you so from the files to let you decide which ones you like best.

Canal route

          Whilst on Friday “AJ” posted about “sitting on” a couple of posts about his Grand Canal walks, I spent a good hour of Friday morning “sitting” in the dentist chair with an altogether less pleasant Canal root on my mind.  I’ll not dwell too much on my aching face today, lets just say that hopefully Friday was the first step to finally being able to eat properly on the left side of my mouth again.

          Thinking of a nicer canal, with the changing season I think it’s almost time to take another walk along the “Canal Walk” between Kidlington and Oxford.  I’m still “sitting on” (to use Aj’s phrase) some of the photos I took last time, back in September, so I’ll give them another airing today.
