Today’s guest picture was taken by my brother on a trip to Yorkshire at the end of last month. It shows Rievaulx Abbey. I think that they have let the place go a bit.
I had a full day but without any great excitement as I didn’t get back home until ten o’clock, this will be a brief post, at least as far as worlds go.
I got up early and put in some useful time choosing and printing pictures to be entered into our Cattle Show at the end of the month.
It was another lovely day so when I had finished, I popped out into the garden to enjoy the flowers for a moment or two.
And then it was time to drive to Carlisle where Mrs Tootlepedal was helping to prepare the music for our Carlisle Choir which starts soon. I spent the time walking into the town centre to visit the mobile phone shop to get some advice. I got some advice and walked back again, stopping to take a couple of pictures on my way.
When Mrs Tootlepedal had finished, we drove home and had lunch. I had another moment to walk round the garden…
…and another to stare out of the kitchen window.
….until it was time to drive to Lockerbie to catch the train to Edinburgh to visit Matilda.
We had fun in the garden picking raspberries and then sitting in the sun but all too soon it was time to catch the train again and then drive through the dark until we got home.
Dropscone has returned from his continental holiday so there may be a chance of treacle scones tomorrow.
The flower of the day is a really zingy dahlia…
…and the flying bird is a distinctly fuzzy sparrow.
