Plan C today

Today’s guest picture comes from my Welsh correspondent Keiron.  He had a lovely day for a pedal along the towpath. It was cold and grey here when we got up and my original plan (Plan A) for the day was to go back to bed after breakfast, pull the covers over my head and hopeContinue reading “Plan C today”

Plan B again

Today’s guest picture comes from my Welsh correspondent Kieron and shows a Welsh tree from Wales. The wind was slightly kinder today but it was still very cold out in the garden, unless the sun was shining….which it did intermittently. When it shone, I tried to be ready with my little camera.  Among the familiarContinue reading “Plan B again”

Two short planks

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who took it on one of his walks.  A local farmer has fenced off a section of a field for the convenience of walkers passing across his land, and fortunately it is just wide enough to allow for social distancing as required these days. Although it wasn’tContinue reading “Two short planks”

Plan B

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone.  The golf course is closed at the moment so he is going for walks and he passed one of my favourite trees  a day or two ago.  He thinks that it is a bit like us, just hanging on by the skin of its teeth. It was colder todayContinue reading “Plan B”

I came, I sawed, I conquered

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce.  It shows that when it comes to Scottish sparrows, a sparrow’s home is its castle. I am starting this post with a cheat, as it is a picture that I took a couple of day ago but forgot to include in that day’s post.   Mrs Tootlepedal sawContinue reading “I came, I sawed, I conquered”

Welcome visitors

Today’s guest picture(s) shows the wonderful flowers organised by Valeria, Joe’s sister-in-law, for Joe and Annie’s recent ceremony ….. ….some of which turned out to be entirely edible, pot and all.  There were made by the Botanical Baker. We had another fine day here and we are in danger of getting so used to goodContinue reading “Welcome visitors”

Land of milk but no honey

Today’s guest picture comes from my Welsh correspondent Keiron, who thought that a Welsh lamb would be appropriate for the time of year. I thought so too. We had another in the run of dry and warmish days that have made March such a contrast to February.  Once again there was thin cloud about butContinue reading “Land of milk but no honey”

Making the most of my one expedition

Today’s guest picture comes from Matilda.  She is off school but obviously getting good art lessons at home. Here, we had another dry day with a lot of thin cloud again.  It did get slightly warmer in the afternoon and may well have got into double figures at last. We are limited in what weContinue reading “Making the most of my one expedition”

Ungarden birds

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  He is quite unhappy that his work as a painter and decorator has been unceremoniously stopped by government order but no provision for helping the self employed to pay their bills has yet been put in hand by the authorities who are happy to pay the wageContinue reading “Ungarden birds”

A Sunday without a song

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  On a clear day recently, he was able to look across the Forth and see North Berwick.  We haven’t organised a holiday there for this year yet.  This may be the closest we get to it. On a normal Sunday at this time of year, we wouldContinue reading “A Sunday without a song”
