Kelly

We have just been back to visit St Mary's church at Kelly. This is the furthest west on my Three Hares Trail and is such a pretty and remote place. The church is predominately a soft green colour the granite being tinged with lichen and the graveyard is a delight being full of wildflowers with snowdrops and masses of wild dafodills just ready to burst into flower! Inside the church you will see two Three Hare carvings, one a new copy of the ancient wooden boss which has darkened with age so much you will need a torch to see it properly. There are several good walks going off from there passing Kelly House with its ancient brick grannary.

Three Hares of St Michaels Church, Chagford.

I have just been into St Michael.s Church in Chagford to see the unusual sight of all the bells down on the ground inside the church. They have just been cleaned and are waiting to be placed back in the bell tower. I took this picture of one of the two Three Hares bosses that are in the beautiful church which is well worth a visit!

RED ADMIRAL & COMMA BUTTERFLY

This is a new watercolour of mine showing a Red Admiral and Comma Butterfly enjoying the late flowering Ivy which is a very good food sourse for insects later on in the year and helps the ones that over winter here. So, please spare a thought for these before you go chopping down to much Ivy!
