Getting stuff done

Today’s picture, from the camera of Dropscone, shows the view from the 14th hole of the Roxburghe golf course where he has been refereeing. The breathing was no better today than yesterday and the forecast was for showers so I thought that this would be a good day to get some stuff done. The firstContinue reading “Getting stuff done”

Puffed out

Today’s picture is from one of the famous borders in the garden at Sissinghurst and was sent to me by my daughter who went there with Mrs Tootlepedal on their great garden adventure. It was an absolutely fabulous day when I got up this morning with not a cloud in the sky. I took thisContinue reading “Puffed out”

Tootling and pedalling again

Today’s picture shows Mrs Tootlepedal in her B and B room checking her route round the gardens of England for the day. The day was perfect for cycling. The sun was shining, the wind was light and the temperature was pleasantly cool. Dropscone arrived half an hour earlier than usual and we set off onContinue reading “Tootling and pedalling again”

Out of breath

Today’s picture is of Kenwood House in London where my sister Mary went for an early walk. It has a nice cafe round the back where she had toast and camomile tea for breakfast. I had thought of going for a longish pedal this morning because Dropscone is away at his son’s graduation but theContinue reading “Out of breath”

Less than exciting

Today’s picture is of a day lily Mrs Tootlepedal told me that I had to be quick to catch this flower, as it is literally here today and gone tomorrow. After yesterday’s exertions, I was intending to have a quiet morning and then go for a gentle pedal with Mrs Tootlepedal in the afternoon. TheContinue reading “Less than exciting”

Not so dull

Today’s picture is of a sunset. We haven’t had many of these lately. It wasn’t raining when Dropscone arrived for the morning pedal but I put on the waterproofs out of habit. The result was that I got far too hot and apart from a moment or two near Glenzier, it didn’t rain at all.Continue reading “Not so dull”

Building up our hopes

Today’s picture is  a fuchsia from the hanging baskets at the Tourist Information Point at the Kilngreen. It was very wet when we got up this morning but neither Dropscone or I wanted to be the one who suggested calling off the morning pedal so he came round as usual and we set off inContinue reading “Building up our hopes”
