      On a glorious sunny day, Summer Eights were finally back after three long years. Today was the third day of the four-day intercollegiate regatta of bumps races taking place in Week 5 of Trinity Term.

      After a long pleasant ride through the fields and woods of the Shire, I finally found the Monkey Orchid. Returning to Hartslock Nature Reserve on the banks of the Thames, I could barely contain my excitement in discovering this rarest of Orchids, only found in three places in the UK.

      I recently told Serafina how I crossed Mongolia with the Trans-Siberian Railway and subsequently came to love Nikita Mikhalkov's film "Urga: Close to Eden". She too was taken with this extraordinary film and insisted on us cycling to North Aston to visit the yurt as well as the organic farm.

      A year has passed, Serafina never met her but I know she would have loved her too. All night, the sky was crying - and after the thunderstorms had cleared in the morning, we felt the pull of the great river once again.

      "You can spread your soul over a paddy field, you can whisper to a mango tree, you can feel the earth between your toes and know that this is the place, the place where it begins and ends. But what can you tell to a pile of bricks? The bricks will not be moved."

      Serafina was beside herself with excitement. The beautiful Oxford May Morning tradition was returning after three years of pandemic hiatus! Once again Oxfordians young and old could gather below the Magdalen (/ˈmɔːdlɪn/) College Tower, dating from 1509, listening to the choir sing Madrigals celebrating

      Even though Bealtaine, the first day of summer, is almost here, I woke up before dawn, troubled and weighed down by sorrow. Yet I could hear birdsong streaming through my open window, showing a dark but clear sky.

The 1,000 acres of mainly ash, maple and hazel was given to the University by Colonel ffennell (née Schumacher).
