Clubbing together

Today’s guest picture is another from Tony’s seaside views.  This one was taken on his phone. Today’s post may be a little more incoherent than usual because I had a restless night.  The forecast had been for cloudy skies so I went to bed without making any preparations to view the much talked about supermoon. Continue reading “Clubbing together”

Surrounded

Today’s guest picture comes from Sharon, mother of Luke my flute playing friend.  She took this beautiful view of the Nith estuary from Glencaple near Dumfries. It was a two choir day as usual on a Sunday and I had a thoroughly enjoyable time.  In church we sang several hymns with satisfying bass lines andContinue reading “Surrounded”

Getting the picture

Today’s guest picture is another from the eternally sunlit shore at East Wemyss.  Tony is making really good use of his dog walking time. We had a chilly (3°C) but kindly day with a very gentle wind and no rain.  The sun didn’t appear so it was dull but all the same we could haveContinue reading “Getting the picture”

Seeing the light

Alert readers may remember a guest picture or two  showing the recent invasion of Derby by some rather scruffy members of Bonnie Prince Charlie’s army.  My brother went to see the prince in the Derby Museum and Art Gallery and asked him not to invade Derby again.  Answer came there none. After the excitements ofContinue reading “Seeing the light”

Taking the biscuit

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who took this charming view of St Paul’s  Cathedral across the river from the cafe outside the Tate Modern art gallery which she was visiting. We had plenty of sunshine here… …and quite a few birds… …on what would have been a grand day for a walkContinue reading “Taking the biscuit”

Using his loaf

Today’s guest picture is another from Tony.  While walking his dogs, he saw this big flock of sea birds floating just off shore. For some unknown reason, I was feeling a bit tired this morning so I decided to have a leisurely time and I was just standing in the garden contemplating life when DropsconeContinue reading “Using his loaf”

A toddle, a pedal and two tootles!

Today’s guest picture from son Tony in East Wemyss goes to prove that you can find grumpy herons all over the place. It was a beautiful morning with a delicate sunrise but it was chilly enough at 4°C after breakfast to keep me from getting my bike out.  Instead, I walked up to the townContinue reading “A toddle, a pedal and two tootles!”

Just time for a stroll

Today’s guest picture comes from Jenni, my highland correspondent, and shows a flock of long tailed tits enjoying her peanuts.  They are beautiful little birds and we are very envious as we would like to see them in our garden. We had a generally sunny and cheerful day here today; cheerful that was as longContinue reading “Just time for a stroll”

A splendid occasion

Today’s guest picture is another from Tony, proving that he can take in the bigger picture but not miss interesting detail at the same time. Encouraged by the splendid picture of a loaf bread which our daughter Annie sent us, I checked the recipe which she had also sent me and decided that it mightContinue reading “A splendid occasion”
