Tea in the park with Mrs Tootlepedal

Today’s picture shows a camel which impressed Mary Jo from Manitoba when she went to have a look at Queen Victoria’s modest tribute to her husband, the Albert Memorial. It is a rather brief post today as everything in the garden was very soggy after some heavy overnight rain… …and we had to have anContinue reading “Tea in the park with Mrs Tootlepedal”

Full of it

Today’s guest picture comes from my Manitoba correspondent Mary Jo. She is currently on holiday in England and came across this fine gate in Salisbury. Mrs Tootlepedal has been wanting a bit a manure to get her garden off to a good start for the next growing season so she had a word with aContinue reading “Full of it”

A day of decisions

The guest picture of the day comes from a visit to Wakefield that my brother made a few weeks ago.   The theatre there is a  handsome but modest building as befits a down to earth town. After some quite heavy rain overnight and a rather misty, murky morning,  today turned into a very pleasant day. Continue reading “A day of decisions”

Good use of a grey day

Today’s guest picture most unusually comes from Mrs Tootlepedal.  She took this picture of our neighbour Liz hard at work in the dam. Unlike yesterday, I hardly stirred from the house and garden all day.  I did pop up to the town after breakfast to oversee the transfer of some unwanted stacking chairs from theContinue reading “Good use of a grey day”

Time and tide

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who went back to the low countries after our visit to Marseille.  He was surprised to find a local pipe band in Ghent.  They are wearing McKenzie tartan kilts, our mother’s clan. The forecast was for a calm and often sunny day.  I made a plan toContinue reading “Time and tide”

Back in the old routine

Today’s guest picture comes from my neighbour Liz.  She enjoyed this misty view on one of her morning walks recently. There were no views at all when we woke up this morning, as the hills were shrouded in clouds and a fine drizzle was falling.  Luckily I had a stint in the Welcome to LangholmContinue reading “Back in the old routine”

Two tests of memory

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by my friend Sandra who lives on the opposite side of town.  She has a fine crop of fungus on a tree stump on her drive. It was Sunday so, as is traditional, Mrs Tootlepedal went off to sing in the church choir and I prepared a venisonContinue reading “Two tests of memory”
