 The picture above is a springtime 2016 view to the North on the village valley      from a lane. The picture below is the little wood, with lots of wild garlic and         bluebells in springtime, where I took Oswald often with me, a neighbour’s dog    who became great friend .                                                                            


The Wells Bishop’s Palace cat on his high seat in the beautiful garden park. I’ve worked as a volunteer in the communal garden.

Saved green bird 06-2016

This little lovely green bird flew against my window and sat dazed and concussed for 20 minutes on my terrace. I watched it from a safe distance and had to encourage it      to make a move, when it found its bearings again.                  

It looked at me sideways with a bright eye, moved its wings and…. off it went on its green wings, steady. I felt so relieved, after hearing 2 small birds fly against my window to their death, holding them in my hands  until they lay silent. It’s a mystery  to me, how small birds, with their fragile structure of bones and airy fairy feathers, are able to fly.

It’s good in Devon UK and wonderful to experience the mystery of Dartmoor.  See how it looks like in the South-West part, also the lanes with old trees entwined, forming a tunnel of greens and vines:

There’s charm in all seasons on Dartmoor, with its changing light and colours. An empty vast landscape without a sound is magical to me, also the wide open sky with massive cloud formations.

Canal near Tavistock 07-2016 (2).jpg
This is a canal in Tavistock, where long ago boats were towed by horses, transporting ingots of tin and  copper, lime and  stone.
