Round and about

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who paid a visit to Chatsworth.  Mrs Tootlepedal is thinking of having something similar in our front garden. I was on the go from morning till night today but largely at a gentle speed  suitable to a man of my age.  It started with a 20 mileContinue reading “Round and about”

Down came the rain

The guest picture of the day is another from my sister Mary’s recent visit to the lake District. I had hoped to get up early and beat the oncoming rain with a quick bike ride  but when I woke at six o’clock, the rain was already beating on the windows so I rolled over andContinue reading “Down came the rain”

Postponed precipitation

Today’s wonderful guest picture is another from my nephew Dan’s visit to Iceland and I put it in as a tribute to Iceland’s victory over the England football team.  Their win was almost as overwhelming as these falls. We have been promised rain for two days now so I got up early and was outContinue reading “Postponed precipitation”

Oh dear

Today’s guest picture comes from a Canadian correspondent, Mary Jo.  She thinks perhaps their weather is worse than ours by some way and if the evidence of a chokecherry  tree blown over is anything to go by, she is quite right. We were promised some wet weather here today but like so many promises recently,Continue reading “Oh dear”

Rain later

Today’s striking guest picture comes from my nephew Dan, via his father.  Dan is on holiday in Iceland. The forecast said it would rain in the afternoon and it did.  Under these circumstances, it was just as well that I got up early, thanks to Mrs Tootlepedal’s encouragement, had my breakfast and got out andContinue reading “Rain later”

Into every life a little rain must fall

Today’s guest picture is another from my brother’s visit to Flamborough Head.  As well as seeing gannets and a puffin, he witnessed a dramatic sea rescue of a woman who had got into difficulties in the sea.  It needed a brave onlooker who plunged into the sea, a life boat and a helicopter.  Here theContinue reading “Into every life a little rain must fall”

The morning after the night before

Today’s guest picture shows a gannet which my brother Andrew met at Flamborough Head.  He met more more exciting things too while he was there, which will appear on another day. A rather soggy post today, I am afraid, as I stayed up all last night watching the results of the Brexit referendum coming inContinue reading “The morning after the night before”

Busy bees

Today’s guest picture is a rather poetic shot of Grasmere in the Lake District taken by my sister Mary on a visit last week. We didn’t have any lack of light here at all today as the sun shone from dawn until dusk.  We seem to have got the best of the weather across theContinue reading “Busy bees”

All action

Today’s guest picture comes from Bruce’s tour of the Mediterranean.  This is Dubrovnik. My plan was to get up early and go for a cycle ride before the wind got too strong and I managed to get up quite early and go for a cycle ride but the wind was pretty strong anyway. As IContinue reading “All action”

Rolling along

Today’s guest picture comes from the Birmingham flower show that Mrs Tootlepedal and our daughter attended on Saturday.  It doesn’t show any flowers though.  Annie took this fine picture of the travelator which conveyed them into the NEC and, I think you will agree, it is just as fine to look at as a bunchContinue reading “Rolling along”
