Gypsy Lane April 2010

Gypsy Lane in South Oxfordshire connected the ancient Ridgeway Path to the Thames Valley. On maps it is known as Crabhill Lane. The site of a Roman villa has been found nearby. There is evidence of a medieval settlement a little further on.
In late April blackthorn blossom arched over head.

Blackthorn blossom is finishing now and hawthorn just beginning to open. Butterflies dance in the sunshine.
