A pedal, a toddle, tea and a cake and two tootles

Today’s guest picture is a south coast sunset, seen by my sister Mary from St Leonard’s-on-Sea. Once again, I managed to get up reasonably promptly and get out on my bicycle in good time.  I was due to do my stint in the Welcome to Langholm office at eleven o’clock so I only had timeContinue reading “A pedal, a toddle, tea and a cake and two tootles”

The start of dark evenings.

Today’s guest picture comes from my daughter Annie.  She would like to take all the credit for this fine hanging basket in her garden but has to admit that she purchased it from B&Q. The clocks went back an hour in the middle of the night so in theory, I could have enjoyed an extraContinue reading “The start of dark evenings.”

Mist out

If you want autumn colour in England, then Stourhead in Wiltshire is the place to be as today’s guest picture from my sister Mary shows.  (She went with her friend Venetia and you can see more pictures of the garden if you want on Venetia’s blog.) We can’t quite match a Greek temple in ourContinue reading “Mist out”

A piece of cake

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  He likes to find interesting places to walk and this shows the Manifold River valley with a secluded magnate’s estate, seen from Ecton Hill in the Staffordshire Peak District. We had a much brighter morning than yesterday and I got out into the garden to sieve someContinue reading “A piece of cake”

Scaling scone mountain

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who has just got round to sorting through some more of his Marseille pictures.  This one shows the village of L’Estaque and a view popular with Braque, Cezanne and other famous painters. The wind did move round today as forecast but it was neither as strong notContinue reading “Scaling scone mountain”

Cathedral concert

Today’s guest picture shows a view of the River Trent near Swarkestone Bridge.  My brother Andrew took the shot while out with his walking group. The wind was in the process of moving round from east to west today but it did it very gently and gave us a wonderfully sunny autumn morning on theContinue reading “Cathedral concert”

A gentle pedal and a hard working tootle

Today’s guest picture comes from my friend Marjorie’s holiday in Yorkshire.  She tells me that she had to climb 107 steps to get to the top of a lighthouse to get this view of Flamborough Head yesterday. I am not sleeping as well as I would like at the moment so I was happy toContinue reading “A gentle pedal and a hard working tootle”

Chaffinches are go

Today’s guest picture shows a pair of Egyptian geese looking very autumnal.  Our daughter Annie met them on a visit to the Serpentine in London. After a succession of rather grey days, we woke to brilliant sunshine today.  This meant that the temperature was on the low side but miraculously, it had stayed well aboveContinue reading “Chaffinches are go”

Keeping calm

Today’s guest picture is another from my brother’s visit to Chester and shows a view of the cathedral there. We had yet another calm, cool, dry day today although Mrs Tootlepedal did encounter the briefest of showers while she was archaeologising. She spent pretty well the whole day at the Roman fort at Broomholm, helpingContinue reading “Keeping calm”
