The birds and the bees (but no cigarette tree)

Today’s picture, sent to me by my son Tony, shows the sunrise over Elie in Fife where he was up early to work. It was the last day of our short period of wonderful weather today and I did my best to make the most of it.  Mrs Tootlepedal had to work almost all dayContinue reading “The birds and the bees (but no cigarette tree)”

A full day

Today’s picture shows Glastonbury Tor.  It is another from the camera of my sister Mary, who was there recently. It was another warm and pleasant day today and Dropscone was back from his golfing work so we set off round the morning run in good spirits.  My spirits were raised by the fact that IContinue reading “A full day”

A bridge not far enough

Today’s picture shows the good effect that closing a bridge has on the traffic on a main road from a cyclist’s point of view. Dropscone was off rating a golf course and Mrs Tootlepedal had gone to work again so I had the day to myself from a cycling point of view.  The forecast hadContinue reading “A bridge not far enough”

Three good things

Today’s picture shows some nicely trained nasturtiums rising to the occasion. Today went as a Tuesday should – a cycle, a sit down and a tootle and all three parts were good. It was cloudy when Dropscone arrived for our morning pedal and it was also a rather windy day but we hadn’t gone farContinue reading “Three good things”

Up and away

Today’s picture is from Dropsocne.  He had to get up early to go to a golf competition yesterday (organising, not playing) and he caught this sunrise on the way to Kelso. He got up quite early again today and came round on his bike ready for the customary pedal.  I am still using the slowContinue reading “Up and away”

Warm work

Today’s picture shows a butterfly sunning itself on a battered garden bench. Today was the opposite of yesterday, with a fine morning and afternoon followed by a wet evening.  Our B & B guests had a late breakfast which meant that I got a lie so that Mrs Tootlepedal could produce her work of culinaryContinue reading “Warm work”

No show

Today’s picture shows Mrs Tootlepedal’s  marrow which would have been on display at the Langholm Show in the heaviest marrow class, if the show had not been cancelled. When we woke up, the rain was lashing down and the cancellation of the show looked like a good decision.  By ten o’clock though, the rain had Continue reading “No show”

Wind up

Today’s  picture is another from my sister Susan. It shows the British Library in London.  In an architectural contrast, you can see St Pancras in the background. After the excitement of visitors yesterday, we had a quiet day today.  Dropscone was taking one of his many sons to the dentist so I had a lonelyContinue reading “Wind up”
