The above photo is actually the ancient bridge, which gives Ivybridge it's name.
We all know that Autumn is peeping over our shoulder, but on my walk around the village earlier today, the warm sunshine and blue skies were hanging in there. I thought I would take a few photos to share with you. This is Ivybridge, where I have lived for the past 32 years of my life and I love it here.
Ivybridge nestles at the foot of Dartmoor, one of England's glorious National Parks, and yet we have the sea and wonderful sandy beaches only fifteen minutes from here. I guess Ivybridge is really a small town now, but to me, it will always be "the village!" "Town" is that other place, just ten miles down the road, that is the seafaring City of Plymouth!
As you can see, we have a lovely Memorial in the village to the brave men of the American Armed Forces.
It's a busy time in the garden at this time of the year, as I pick the crops of tomatoes, raspberries, blueberries, gooseberries, blackberries and apples.
I am enjoying being back on my Blog again, and I'm sure you will see me here again soon. Hopefully you are all finding some time to relax today. Remember... We must always try to pause to "smell the roses" in our busy lives.
Bye for now.
