Off to Ivybridge via the moor. This has to be the best walk to the shops.


Along Leigh Lane, shade-loving wood sorrel is just opening and there are new marsh violets unfolding in the bogs near the Lud brook.

The sunshine brings out the vivid reds, greens and yellows of the moss.

The mysterious hole, with some new scratches nearby. Maybe a badger’s holt?

There is water crowfoot flowering in the dewponds.

Coming off the moor, along the drovers’ path, there are masses of bright yellow celandines and dandelions.
