Zoom, zoom, zoom

Today’s guest picture comes from my cycling reader Paul. He lives in Lancashire and he sent me this picture of a reservoir to show that we are not the only ones having a dry time just now. I am starting today’s post with a picture from yesterday. I almost always only use pictures in aContinue reading “Zoom, zoom, zoom”

Making myself useful in the end

Today’s guest picture comes from Bill, a blog reader, who was pleased that we enjoyed his creative poppy plantation on our recent walk. Nature got a helping hand! He has sent me this picture of a ceanothus which rivals the cotoneaster as a bee magnet. Our spell of dry, warm and sunny weather continued today,Continue reading “Making myself useful in the end”

Beer but no skittles

Today’s guest picture is another from Tony in sunny East Wemyss. He passed this delightful garden maintained by OAPs for the benefit of passers by. We had another lovely day here with the only worry that it might get a bit too hot for us pallid northerners. One sign of the easing of the lockdownContinue reading “Beer but no skittles”

Just like the grand old duke

Today’s guest picture comes from cyclist and Lake District lover Paul. He sent me this picture to show that the sun doesn’t always shine on Buttermere. The sun certainly shone here in Langholm today, and once again watering was needed in the garden. Mrs Tootlepedal spotted strange goings on on one of the paths offContinue reading “Just like the grand old duke”

A bit of a buzz

Today’s guest picture comes from one of my brother’s walks in his local area. The farmer has had to work round and old water tower to get his field planted. There was a lot of noise in the garden this morning although as far as the weather went it was sunny and peaceful day. TheseContinue reading “A bit of a buzz”

Calmer wind, busier roads

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. He sent me this picture of a fine East Wemyss fungus and then went back at my request to photograph the underside too. The wind finally calmed down here and after a misty start, the skies cleared and we had a very acceptably warm but not tooContinue reading “Calmer wind, busier roads”

The other half

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset corespondent Venetia. She was visited by a greater spotted woodpecker the other day. We had a pleasantly sunny morning here, with enough wind to ensure that it didn’t get too hot for the morning street coffee meeting. We were greatly entertained as we sipped and chatted by aContinue reading “The other half”

Singing together apart

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who once again managed to extend her permitted walk as far as Regent’s Park where she found a favourite restful corner to enjoy. It was still grey and drizzly this morning, but the heavy winds of the past two days had eased off a lot and whenContinue reading “Singing together apart”

Uphill work

Today’s guest picture comes from my camera club friend Simon. He has been taking walks round Canonbie during the lockdown and wonders why anyone might prefer city life to scenes like these. It was not a promising morning today here in any way, being windy and wet from the start. I did pop out intoContinue reading “Uphill work”

A dull day

Today’s guest picture comes from a reader in Bucks Co., Pennsylvania. Spurred on by my biscuit making efforts, Lisa has produced her own Garibaldi biscuits which are very nicely presented. It was a day of constant wind here today, often gusting at over 40mph. As a result, apart from going out for a very shortContinue reading “A dull day”
