Cambridge is a lovely city, made all the more beautiful yesterday in the autumn sunshine.

As well as enjoying the cafes and shops we were there to visit two exhibitions. The first was Winifred Nicholson at Kettles Yard and then the snow country: woodcuts of the Japanese Winter at the Fitzwilliam Museum.
The latter exhibition was the one that really caught my imagination, particularly the prints of Hiroshige. They seemed very peaceful. Almost monochrome except for touches of blue, very detailed yet somehow uncluttered. This was one of my favourites.
A stroll around the market followed with its enticing stalls :
Aubergines and .....
....these amazing squash!
And no trip to Cambridge would be complete without a delicious Chelsea bun from Fitzbillies!
