More train strain

Today’s very appropriate guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  He not only photographed this Halloween lantern but also carved it himself and grew the plant too.  A man of many talents. We had another in our run of frosty mornings but dry days today and after coffee, I went out for a walk withContinue reading “More train strain”

A stroll, a spin and a song

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who, in spite of some grey weather, went down to the south bank of the Thames yesterday and enjoyed the view. Here, our recent pattern of chilly mornings but dry days continued, although we didn’t get quite as much sun as we have had recently and asContinue reading “A stroll, a spin and a song”

Cool walking

Today’s guest picture shows a real trouper from Manitoba.  Lucie sent the picture to me and tells me that on the day that she took it,  Manitoba was at -8c, and the little pansy was still going strong despite having been covered in four inches of snow and suffering several below freezing days We had anotherContinue reading “Cool walking”

Slowly getting back in the groove

Today’s guest picture comes from that inveterate traveller Bruce.  He looked in on a tea dance at the famous Tower Ballroom in Blackpool but did not venture onto the floor himself.  Doubtless things will be a bit more lurid on 16th November when Strictly comes to town. Finally our spell of mild autumn weather cameContinue reading “Slowly getting back in the groove”

By Grand Central Station, I stood up and sang

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who came across a collection of 1000 year old Peruvian bottles.  I am not entirely sure that I would like to own bottles that were giving me  a hard stare. In spite of the title of today’s post, it was actually Glasgow Central Station where we stoodContinue reading “By Grand Central Station, I stood up and sang”

More travel confusions

Today’s guest picture comes from Bruce.  On his recent trip, a driverless electric bus kindly stopped for him at a pedestrian crossing in Oslo. I managed to get out for a 16 mile cycle ride this morning and enjoyed the sight of larch trees turning to gold both on my way up to Callister… …andContinue reading “More travel confusions”

A windy walk

Today’s guest picture comes from Bruce’s who visited Oslo on his Scandinavian  cruise.  He tells me that She Lies (Norwegian: hun ligger) is a public sculpture by Monica Bonvicini made of stainless steel and glass panels.  It is a permanent installation, floating on the water in the fjord and turns on its axis in lineContinue reading “A windy walk”

A ride, a walk and a song

Today’s guest picture comes from Mary Jo in Manitoba.  Her hostas have been frozen but still offer some golden colour to brighten up her garden. It was another mercifully dry day here, but it was grey and chilly with the temperature well in single figures at breakfast. I was in no hurry to get upContinue reading “A ride, a walk and a song”
