A very full day

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by Bruce from his recent visit to Sheffield.  I have never seen a public bicycle pump station like this before but it strikes as me as a good idea. There was never a dull moment today with no less than three visiting experts.  Ian painted the garage doors,Continue reading “A very full day”

Putting my foot in it

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  He came across this wonderful cave on one of his walks.  Thor’s Cave (also known as Thor’s House Cavern and Thyrsis’s Cave) is a natural cavern located at in the Manifold Valley of the White Peak in Staffordshire, I got up quite early for me but an early bird had got up even earlier. A partridge was outContinue reading “Putting my foot in it”

The weather gods never get bored of their little joke

Today’s guest picture comes from Irving, a keen fisherman.  Knowing that we have not got much water in our rivers at the moment, he sent me this view of the Einag Falls. They are on a tributary of the river Oykel in the Highlands where he was fishing three weeks ago.  He adds that heContinue reading “The weather gods never get bored of their little joke”

High but not dry

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan.  She was very impressed by this floral hedge which she passed not far from her home. We had some thought of an expedition today but uncertain feet and a dubious forecast persuaded us that some time spent in the garden while it was still dry would beContinue reading “High but not dry”

Rain takes the biscuit

Today’s guest picture comes from my occasional correspondent Elaine.  She and our neighbour Liz were visiting a garden centre when they met some unexpected customers in the aisle of the polytunnel. We had another day here that started with sun but turned rainy in the afternoon.  I had a very quiet day as I wasContinue reading “Rain takes the biscuit”

Serious rain at last

Today’s guest picture of her allotment was sent to me by our daughter Annie, and shows that she takes after her mother…and then some.  She did get some help. The day started with lovely sunshine and steadily got greyer until it was raining in Edinburgh  when we got there.   We were not complaining as theContinue reading “Serious rain at last”

A garden visit

Today’s guest picture shows one of our son Tony’s dogs enjoying the sunshine on the East Wemyss Riviera.  It’s lip-smackingly good there. Our spell of dry and sunny weather started its drift to normality today as the temperature dropped a degree or two and the sun became rather shy as the day went on, butContinue reading “A garden visit”

Icicling and bicycling

Today’s guest picture is a weather vane from the Somerset Rural Life Museum sent to me by Venetia, my Somerset correspondent.  The weather vane is a memorial to a long serving volunteer at the museum, a nice idea. The weather here was warm and sunny but not quite as warm and sunny as yesterday asContinue reading “Icicling and bicycling”

More blooming bluebells

Today’s guest picture is a second from Bruce’s recent visit to the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway.  I make no apologies, I love steam engines.  This one was built in 1896 and is a lot older than me. We had yet another lovely day here with more wall to wall sunshine and no call for a jumperContinue reading “More blooming bluebells”

Hallelujah

Today’s guest picture comes from my friend Bruce who visited the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway which runs (rather smokey) heritage trains between Duffield and Wirksworth, in the Derbyshire Peak District.  By the way, Henry Ellison was built in 1947 so it may be heritage but it is still younger than me. Easter Sunday was another dayContinue reading “Hallelujah”
