reedbed

Amazing walk along Oxford canal this morning. Air fresh, bright spring sunlight, ducks frisky.

Took this pic near Aristotle Lane--reedbed in between Victorian terraces and new housing development by railwayline. Even fifteen years ago there used to be a mile or so of these bits of marsh and copse but most of them have now been built over.

When you walked from Osney Island to Jericho, say, for a pint at the Harcourt Arms (one of the few city centre pubs with real fires) it was like being in the countryside.
