Pressing needs

Today’s picture from my brother Andrew’s recent visit to Singapore shows that they have an ‘Eye’ there.  They seem to have sprung up everywhere. We don’t have an eye in Langholn, just one or two swings in the play park but we do have sunshine at the moment and we are very grateful for it.Continue reading “Pressing needs”

A full day

Today’s picture illustrates the general unfairness of life.  It shows that spring has already come to my sister Mary’s garden in London in fine style. We haven’t got spring here although there are odd hints of it about but we did have another wall to wall blue sky day.  Clear skies at dawn tend toContinue reading “A full day”

Going round in circles

Today’s picture, sent to me by Bruce, shows his wife and faithful dog perched precariously in that limbo which is neither in England or Scotland. We had another wall to wall day of sunshine today and as the wind was slightly less rigorous than yesterday, it felt a little more pleasant to be out.  IContinue reading “Going round in circles”

Computer crash

Today’s picture, taken by my friend Bruce on an excursion earlier this week, shows a slight leak in some water works creating an ice sculpture by the roadside.  It goes to show that despite the sunshine, the mornings are still pretty chilly. We had another day of dawn to dusk sunshine, with a chilly startContinue reading “Computer crash”

Two pedals and a toddle

Today’s picture came to mind when Dropscone and I were drinking a plain cup of black coffee from simple tea cups.  They do these things differently in France as this picture from his recent holiday shows. We had yet another dry day today and although it was still hovering only just above zero when weContinue reading “Two pedals and a toddle”

From moorland to seashore

Today’s picture is another from my sister Mary’s recent riverside walk and shows a gull making its escape from the Tower of London. We had some hints of sunshine when we woke this morning, combined with some hints of snow to go with it.  In the end we got neither to any great extent, althoughContinue reading “From moorland to seashore”

A pedal and a tootle yet again

Today’s picture shows Maisie doing her best to make up for the crisis in the bee community. Our garden would have been no place for a bee this morning as it was another cold, grey and dry day.  The main feature of the garden was an endless procession of finches visiting the feeders.  It wasContinue reading “A pedal and a tootle yet again”

A cool air

Today’s picture shows a lighthouse at Whitley Bay where my friends Gavin and Gaye were recently on grandparenting duty. Although the day here promised to be sunny, it soon faded to a dull grey with a keenly nipping wind.  As I walked up to the town, a passer by described it to me with considerableContinue reading “A cool air”


Today’s picture was taken by my sister Mary on a Thameside walk this morning.  I am going to have to up my game if my family start sending me pictures like this. Our spell of sunny weather came to an end today but, as a compensation, it was slightly warmer and Dropscone and I wereContinue reading “Wind”

International cycling

Today’s picture shows an  interesting cake which Dropscone picked up for an extremely modest price when coming through Hawick yesterday evening.  I thought that it looked unnervingly like a set of frogs peering out of a very muddy pond which may have affected my ability to truly enjoy my slice. Freezing temperatures again put paidContinue reading “International cycling”
