Treacle, tootle and pedal

Today’s  guest picture was taken by my brother Andrew on a recent visit to Birmingham.  It is a city of many canals. I had slept very badly and was enjoying a much needed lie in and snooze when the phone rang twice.  My mild irritation was assuaged when I discovered that it was Dropscone offeringContinue reading “Treacle, tootle and pedal”

A kindly wind

Today’s guest picture comes from my friend Bruce who was impressed by this polite message on an Edinburgh tram…especially as the delay was only for three minutes. The jet stream is currently rushing down one side of the British Isles and up the other, trapping some quite chilly air over the top of us andContinue reading “A kindly wind”

The last day of summer

Today’s guest picture comes from our neighbour Gavin who met these sea creatures while on a walking holiday in the west. According to the forecast, the weather for the rest of the week and beyond is going to be cold, wet and windy so we tried to make good use of a very pleasant dayContinue reading “The last day of summer”

A plan comes together

Today’s guest picture comes from a visit my sister Mary paid to Queen Mary’s Garden in Regent’s Park.  She seems to find good weather for her visits to the park. I have been a bit wimpish lately about cycling in brisk winds so I made a plan to get up promptly this morning and toContinue reading “A plan comes together”

Pecking order

Today’s guest picture is another from our older son’s visit to Anstruther and shows that he took his friends with him. Another of the regular Moorland bird feeders was away on holiday today so I had a second opportunity this week to act as a fill-in feeder filler so I went up after breakfast toContinue reading “Pecking order”

Wool gathering

Today’s guest picture comes from our older son Tony.  He was working at Anstruther, on the north coast of the Firth of Forth today and took time off to admire the coastal rocks. Mrs Tootlepedal spent a lot of the day visiting the Woolfest at Cockermouth with friends.  The Woolfest is what it says onContinue reading “Wool gathering”

A brief note

I am short of guest pictures and have had to fall back on another of the admittedly excellent pictures that my sister Mary took on her visit to the Lake District. I had an enjoyable but unremarkable day today. The weather remained good and it was a little cooler which was welcome. I went forContinue reading “A brief note”

Ill met

Today’s guest picture shows a flowery scene from Kew Gardens which caught my sister Mary’s eye. The forecast was full of dire warnings of heavy rain, possible thunderstorms and general mayhem.  In the event, midsummer’s day was a quiet day with some very light rain now and again, hardly a breath of wind and justContinue reading “Ill met”
