Steel Orchid Down My Way

This beautiful hybrid orchid is
named after Aung San Suu Kyi.

You never know who you’re going to see in Oxford. A while ago I got to say good morning to a fistful of bishops as I got out of the car.

This afternoon, we saw Aung San Suu Kyi whizz past in a security convoy through Summertown. She used to live here back in the days when she was just an Oxford wife and mother.

It’s also her birthday today. Here’s a piece a wrote about her.

And here are some more pieces about Burma.

And here’s a piece by Mary Plumb in the Mountain Astrologer about her.

Oh and in case you want to know about the bishops, here’s a link to that.
