Set under the Erman’s birch tree the renowned Trinity College fox sits idle with its cub amongst the wild grass and wildflowers. The title is inspired by Oscar Wilde’s quote:-

‘The exquisite art of idleness, one of the most important things that any University can teach.’ Oscar Wilde.

During no mow May in 2023 a rare orchid, the broad-leaved hellaborine was spotted.  Growing amongst the wild clover and forget-me-nots this orchid needs a particular type of fungi to grow and botanists have found that this is linked to the underground root system of birch trees.  This big old birch tree is the perfect spot for the Trinity fox to chill out and looking at the Campanile, the centrepiece of Trinity College’s Front Square.
