St. Cross Court
Through his school my son was associated with Oxford University and one of it colleges, St. Cross. Unless you literally have a key (he did) or have paid to be on a tour visiting the inner court of these colleges is limited. It was a great pleasure to stroll around wherever I wanted. A gentleman came into my booth one time and immediately and with certainty identified this shrub. Of course, I did not write it down nor has anyone since make any such rash statements. When over the course of time—they do; I’ll pencil it in right here - ceanothus.
