Unexpected visitations

Today’s guest pictures (there are two of them) show that snow was spread from London to Edinburgh today.  They come from our son Tony in Edinburgh and our daughter Annie in London. And to fill up the sandwich, here is Langholm at midday. In the end, we got more snow than either Edinburgh or LondonContinue reading “Unexpected visitations”

Here and gone

Today’s guest picture is another from Venetia’s American adventure.  No prizes for guessing the name of this animal. We woke to an unexpected scene this morning…. …though it was only unexpected as it had arrived sooner than I was expecting. There wasn’t that much of a snowy scene though when I walked down to theContinue reading “Here and gone”

Mirror, mirror on the road

Today’s guest picture is a beautiful shot of the little lake in Regents Park.  My sister Mary took it on her way to play tennis at the weekend and remarked that it looked very spring-like in spite of being partially frozen. We had another dry, chilly day here without much sun to cheer us upContinue reading “Mirror, mirror on the road”

Sing along

Today’s guest picture is another from Venetia’s visit to Yellowstone. It was  cold here again but not as cold as Yellowstone and we had another sunny day to take our mind off the near freezing temperatures. It was a choir Sunday with the church choir in the morning and the Carlisle choir in the afternoonContinue reading “Sing along”

Over the moon

Today’s guest picture comes from my Langholm friends Jim and Sandra.  They are visiting Australia where they met some down under bird life. We enjoyed another chilly but sunny day and if you could keep in the sun and out of a relentlessly nipping wind, it was not too bad at all. We had aContinue reading “Over the moon”

My hat

Today’s guest picture is a reflective study from my brother Andrew. There are too many pictures in today’s post so I will try to keep the wittering to a minimum. It was another mainly sunny, dry day with a chilly wind and a frosty start.  As long as it keeps dry, we are trying notContinue reading “My hat”

Unexpected punctuality

Today’s guest picture shows an interesting wall which Dropscone encountered on his Irish holiday. Our spell of calm, dry and chilly weather continued today with a bright, sunny morning making it possible to overlook the 2°C temperature. It looks as though this pattern will stay with us for several days with the only difference beingContinue reading “Unexpected punctuality”

A grand old Duke of York day

To make a change from endless pictures of moss, my guest picture of the day is a moose The picture came from Venetia, who saw the moose in Grand Teton National Park. The wind is in the east at the moment, which often means sunnier days for us and this was the case today. ItContinue reading “A grand old Duke of York day”

On the road

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who was passing Tamworth castle the other day when the sun came out. We had another cool morning here but with added sunshine and the day soon became suitable for gardening and cycling. I had a walk round the garden after breakfast and had to duck asContinue reading “On the road”

A bit more out and about

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone who is on holiday.  He and his family visited Mizzen Head.  It is not on my list of places to visit for obvious reasons. For the first time for what seems like ages, we had quite a warm day today with the thermometer gently pushing at 10°C and itContinue reading “A bit more out and about”
