This post is long way due. But I only had a chance to edit the picture few days ago.
Nearly a month ago we went to Oxford with the Kruppas. They are our church friend, an American, who lived in Corby, England. This probably our 7th visitor to Oxford and the beauty of this ancient city never fails to impress me again. I can't imagine I used to stay in one of the college here.
Since it is spring time, we took a chance to view the Magdalen College garden. Above is flower fields nearby the river. I had no clue what the name of this "look-like-bowing-tulip" flower. Any clue?
Here was the bloom few weeks ago, which now already gone until next year. The whole park is filled with various kind of wild flowers, and not only that, you'll spot some deers if you are lucky!

And once more..... tulip fiesta!!!
Below, a few picture of Magdalen College property. Not only serve it's function as a accomodation for student, the college own few hectars of garden, a pond, river, even it's own chapel. Magdalen College (pronounced /ˈmɔːdlɨn/ "mawdlin") is one of the constituent colleges of the University of Oxford in England. As of 2006 the college had an estimated financial endowment of £153 million.
Regarded by some as one of the most beautiful of the Oxford and Cambridge colleges, Magdalen is also one of the most visited. It stands next to the River Cherwell and has within its grounds a deer park and Addison's Walk. Magdalen College School also lies nearby. The large, square Magdalen Tower is a famous Oxford landmark, and it is a tradition that the college choir sings from the top of it early on May Morning (and then followed by a tradition of plunging into the icy cold river!!).
Can you imagine staying in this building? For about 600-800 pound a month you can get yourself a single bedroom on this stately home. Isn't this pretty?
I would think that's include few hundreds old victorian era toilet, I don't know whether I would like that idea.
