Stock response

Today’s guest picture comes from our neighbour Liz.  She has been going through her photographic archives and found this very odd picture from 40 years ago of me pushing her late husband down the street in a wheelbarrow.  Our strange expressions may be because we have large moustaches painted on our faces.  Memories have  fadedContinue reading “Stock response”

When the chips are down

As well as seeing beautiful river scenes, Bruce has also met St Aidan of Lindisfarne on his Northumberland break, and his statue is the guest picture of the day. There was an infernal racket in the garden this morning and anyone who extols the calming and peaceful nature of bird song has obviously not heardContinue reading “When the chips are down”

Chipping in

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce who is on a break in Northumberland, where he took this picture of a bridge over the River Breamish. It was a grey and faintly drizzly day here today so it was good to have a spot of indoor brightness supplied by the  charming flowers that SueContinue reading “Chipping in”

I felt no pain

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  On a recent tour, he stopped at Tewkesbury and took a picture of the bridge there. Yesterday’s heavy work on the lawn was an experiment in ‘kill or cure’ and when I woke up this morning, I was very happy to find that the balance had tippedContinue reading “I felt no pain”

Real life

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who knows that I like a neat lawn.  She found this one near a well known large house. It was one of those days when it might have rained at any time and there was evidence that it had rained… …but in the end, it kept reasonablyContinue reading “Real life”

The old routine

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  He lives in Derby and the local football team has a very important match tomorrow so this large football has been placed so that supporters can write encouraging comments on it.  I asked Andrew if he had written anything but he said that hadn’t because he wasContinue reading “The old routine”

Taking things easy

Today’s guest picture comes from learned reader Edward from Sheffield.  He has tree peonies in his garden with flowers a foot wide. We had timed our holiday well.  After several dry weeks, the weather turned gloomy today and it rained in the afternoon.  According to the forecast, there is a good deal more rain toContinue reading “Taking things easy”

The queen of the castle

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent Venetia.  She visited Minterne gardens and saw a hundred flowers as good as these ones. We had the option of leaving North Berwick this evening or early tomorrow morning and as Matilda has a busy day in Edinburgh tomorrow and Mrs Tootlepedal has a busy day inContinue reading “The queen of the castle”

Matilda in fairyland

Today’s guest picture was taken by my flute pupil Luke’s father, Alan.  He has been forced to go to Dubrovnik on work related business and this is the view from his hotel window.  Poor chap. I realised that I had inexcusably omitted a great moment from yesterday’s activities in my daily account so here itContinue reading “Matilda in fairyland”

Having fun regardless

Today’s guest picture comes from Venetia who was happy to be able to take a picture of her visiting badgers without using a flash. After a quiet morning, we packed into our cars and set off to visit a beach with the intention of taking part in that most British of all holiday activities, aContinue reading “Having fun regardless”
