Old winter’s song

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce who managed to be on the platform at Lockerbie Station when an excursion train drawn by no less then three locomotives (two steam and a diesel)  went through.  Good skills. The lyrics of the song Autumn Leaves contain the lines: Since you went away the days growContinue reading “Old winter’s song”

Farewell

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone’s recent holiday trip to Mablethorpe.  He was gratified to find that they had erected a fine carving of him in honour of his arrival.  (He doesn’t usually wear the crown when he comes for coffee.) The forecast had been for snow, rain and strong winds so we were pleasedContinue reading “Farewell”

Turning back the clock

Today’s guest picture is another form Irving’s Highland fishing trip.  As well as an old bridge, he caught a new one too. After some days which have had hints of spring about them, we had a return to cold weather today.  As the sky was blue and the sun was out, this was a bitContinue reading “Turning back the clock”

A matter of timing

Today’s guest picture comes from Irving who has been fishing in the Highlands.  He doesn’t tell me if he caught any fish but at least he made this very nice capture of the old bridge over the River Oykel. I had a varied day today including cycling, walking and singing and among the skills requiredContinue reading “A matter of timing”

Light showers

Today’s guest picture is a reminder of a sunny day just past and shows an unusual view of the Benty bridge and church.  It was taken by my friend Bruce and stars his wife, Lesley as ‘The Lady on the Bridge’. The sun made infrequent appearances today and in between the sunny spells, there wereContinue reading “Light showers”

A fan of Oscar

Today’s guest picture comes from  Dropscone’s recent seaside holiday on the east coast.  He climbed a dune to look at the beach and saw five people, two dogs and half a million razor clam shells. We had a third and bonus sunny day as the weather turned out better than expected.  It was frosty againContinue reading “A fan of Oscar”

Croaking

Today’s guest picture comes from Venetia’s recent trip to America.  As well as wild life in Wyoming, she saw still life in Thousand Oaks. We had a second fine sunny day today, frosty at dawn but warm enough for the rest of the day to make being outside a pleasure. So it was a pityContinue reading “Croaking”

Spring in the step

  Today’s guest picture come from ex-archivist Ken who tells me that this odd structure is designed to filter pollutants to the  equivalence of up to 300 trees. It is situated at Haymarket at a busy junction close to the bus station. Spring arrived  today and even if it is, as they used to sayContinue reading “Spring in the step”

Back up and running

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone.  He has been on holiday for a few days beside the sea in Lincolnshire.  He sent me this picture of definite cheating in the children’s sandcastle building competition. We were the victim of a meteorological prank today.  The weather got warmer as forecast but as it was blowing aContinue reading “Back up and running”
