Bluebells and historic cemetery, Tavistock.


I visited Tavistock’s historic Quaker cemetary yesterday. It’s a wildlife haven and as I drove in my wheelchair, I saw bluebells, primroses and the silent flight of many butterflies between the old headstones.

I can only travel a short distance and bluebells are hard to come by, as not many woodlands are safe or accessible to wheelchairs.

Bluebells normally grow in hedges and open ground on Dartmoor and flower in mid to late May, it being higher ground than other parts of Devon.

My wheelchair got stuck in some mud in the cemetery but I got out of it and guided it out of the mud easily enough, phew !




Plasterdown Dartmoor in April.


I drove across Plasterdown last Friday and got these photos from the car.

it was a chilly, windy day but I heard a pheasant and saw some lambs which was lovely.


Sunny day in February Plasterdown Dartmoor.

imageYesteday I briefly visited Plasterdown and took some photos from the car and a few steps from the car. Being Ill means I can only walk a few steps but luckily there was plenty to see.

I stopped next to this willow tree and took some pictures of some well placed sheep before taking the beech trees in the later pictures from a car window.
