Oxford’s Double Decker Bus Tours

One unique thing about Oxford, MS is the Double Decker Bus that travels through town. It is a tour bus with an open-air upper level, friendly driver, and informative tour guide.  I witnessed the end of a regional Ole Miss Rebels baseball game from the top of the bus last year. Hotty Toddy; Rebels won!

Riding the Double Decker Bus is a fun thing to do when visiting our town so plan to schedule a tour.

New Ole Miss students and their families attending the orientation activities this spring and summer can also tour the town on this bus. Don’t miss the opportunity.

Vegetable Gardens in Oxford

One of my hobbies is gardening. I’m a Jr Master Garden instructor and have a Master designation in environmental education, backyard wildlife habitats, birding and more.  I enjoy gardening and teaching how to garden.

This week, I will be presenting a garden talk at the Oxford Lafayette Public Library on Thursday, February 26, at noon.  I’ll be giving instruction on how to use the library’s Seed Lending Library, and getting started with your summer garden.101_0422_00

It is time to start planning so if you have interest in growing vegetables in your yard this year, call to reserve a spot at this event. Lunch will be served so the library staff will need to know how many to plan for.

New to Oxford?  Come out to get acquainted with Zone 7 growing.

Did I mention there will be door prizes?

The library is located at 401 Bramlett Blvd.  Phone number: 662-234-5751.
