A most unusual benchmark

Today’s guest picture reflects the sun, sea and sand being currently enjoyed by Sandy, who is in the Canary Islands having fun. I must apologise for any more than my usual incoherence in today’s post as after several eventful days, I am feeling a bit tired. I daresay though, that I am not as tiredContinue reading “A most unusual benchmark”

Sung to a halt

Today’s guest picture shows a fine selection of flying birds spotted by Mike Tinker in Singapore on his way home from New Zealand. There won’t be much in the way of text today because I have had a hard afternoon and evening as we first had a rehearsal for our Langholm Sings concert with theContinue reading “Sung to a halt”

B picture

Today’s colourful guest picture comes from my sister Mary who recently visited the Isabella Plantation in Richmond Park, London. Apart from a couple of brief showers, we had a much better day today.  It wasn’t a lot warmer in theory but a very welcome break from the recent strong winds made it feel a lotContinue reading “B picture”

Showers and sunshine

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew, who thought that this picture of the fernery at York on a rainy day might interest me after my fern walk with Mike a few  days ago.  He was right.  It interested Mike too. We had another cool and windy day here, with occasional heavy showers.  IContinue reading “Showers and sunshine”

Taking April showers a bit too far

Today’s guest picture shows the Cave of Drac on Majorca.  Dropscone visited it while on holiday on the island.  He got to listen to a concert while he was there. We had to agree with T S Eliot today.  The weather was very cruel.  If I went out on my bicycle, it rained and ifContinue reading “Taking April showers a bit too far”

April weather

There may be serious concern about the lack of insects in general but today’s guest picture from Venetia shows that there is no shortage of them just now in Somerset. We had a typical April day here today, breezy, cool and occasionally rainy but it was just warm enough to allow for gardening and theContinue reading “April weather”

Binned

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary, who saw this copy of the Lamazzu – a winged deity looted from the Iraq Museum – made of empty date syrup cans, on the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square. Our weather descended from the recent summer heights to slightly below the seasonal average, the feeling ofContinue reading “Binned”

Lightning conductor

Today’s guest picture comes from a boat trip that Dropscone took while on his holiday in Majorca.  He saw these  interesting rocks. The forecast drop in temperature came about but it was not quite as dramatic as it might have been.  All the same, some light drizzle and clouds made the day seem very gloomyContinue reading “Lightning conductor”

Mid summer in mid April

Today’s guest picture is another from foreign parts.  Dropscone is on holiday in Majorca and was impressed by the efforts to keep the sea at bay there. We had another lovely day here.  I don’t want to sound ungrateful because we have enjoyed the spell of good weather immensely but getting it so early inContinue reading “Mid summer in mid April”
