Euan is always quite enthusiastic about Blog photograph suggestions, here he is with The Lovely Lacey posing angelically on the church steps. I didn't realise Lacey was sticking her tongue out. Never work with children or animals! This Church is 'Saint Peter's Church' but I have always known it as 'Ipsley Church'. It was built in the 14th Century. Within the last decade it was someone's great idea to add on an ugly brick extension tut tut tut. My Mom and her brothers used to walk here to Sunday School, I think my Mom said from about the age of four.
Yew trees are very poisonous while the berries look very decorative I wouldn't touch them.
The Yew is the longest living plant in Europe there is a tree in Scotland that is confirmed to be 2000 years old. According to 'Wikipedia' some trees have been confirmed as between 5000 - 9500 years old.
Lacey is blissfully unaware of all these facts and figures and as long as she finds a 'Big' stick she is happy.
The trees do a great job at hiding all the factories and large buildings. In among all those trees is a large industrial estate. The whole town is pretty much like this all the highways are edged with trees and shrubs. It hides the 'ugliness' really well. I really don't know of an 'Urban' town with more greenery.
My apologies for the rambling post...I just wanted to share my pictures :)
Hope you have all had a good weekend.
