On the western flanks of Dartmoor adjoining the Tavy valley you will find the old
hill farms with their granite walled fields creeping up the valley sides till they
come up against the harsher conditions of the open moor.
One such farm is Stannon and it is here that I have painted this old and magnificent
Hawthorn that stands in one of these fields. In addition to the beauty of the May
blossom that coats this tree, the fields in this area are swathed in Bluebells and
Celandine which contrast with the rich greens which have burst forth after the harsh
winter that this part of the West Country endures.
