Wonderful time at the Ashmolean today to see the new Jeff Koons exhibit. I was completely enchanted, seeing the pieces live makes all the difference in the world. Delightfully surprised that photography is allowed which invites much more intimacy!

A new photo from last week’s wellbeing walk with the university students. Nell looks so happy!
Nell with buddies Hermes (tri-colour pembroke corgi from the US, looking at camera) and Alistair (Cardigan corgi who lives just up the street, looking at Hermes) in the Thames at Port Meadow, Oxford. Nell now has 4 corgi friends in Oxford, which is really so great! All had a great time chasing sticks from the water.
It’s almost November and Sceptre’d Isle is still giving lovely blooms. One of my favourite roses!
Nell of Oxford, Working Gal.
Nell at work with the Oxford University Student Union. She goes on walks with students once a week; they get endless amounts of incredible doggie loving and she gets all the attention she desires (which is quite a lot actually, 😉 ).
We should breathe the odour of roses for all eternity.
