Simply Poetry

Cherished Moments

University town

teaching hospital

historic colleges

grand Victorian architecture

spreading green lawns

beautiful English trees

add character to its surrounds.


Basking in the sun

picnickers with wicker baskets

enjoying a leisurely tea

watching punters

glide along the river

cyclists ride

bicycle track

riverside path.


A beautiful day

spring blossoms

add colour

garden ambience

impressing memories



déjà vu!

    • Thanks so much, Diana. 🙂 Yes, we were all so close to one another… and we were also known as the ” United Nations” 😃 Having said that we are still in touch and meet from time to time during our hols. Glad you enjoyed the poetic experience! Appreciate your interest and lovely reflection…

  2. Idyllic and seemingly far from the madness of shopping malls at this time of year.

    • Yes, it has such beautiful surroundings… the gardens and trees make the place conducive for walks, picnics and cycling tracks by the river. 🚴‍♂️🚴‍♀️ I really enjoyed our time there in Cambridge, it was a great and fun group and we shared so much together! 😃 Thanks for stopping by, Sarah, and for your lovely comment. 🌻 ♥️
