Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He passed this rural scene on his walk today.
The day here started with a trip with Evie to her nursery. As Annie lives in an area of London popular with Portuguese people, we were able to buy some very nice custard tarts from a Portuguese shop on our way home.
Later in the morning Mrs Tootlepedal and I went with Annie to her allotment where Mrs Tootlepedal helped with some skilled gardening and I laid about some unruly grass with zest. Fortunately, Mrs Tootlepedal and Annie spotted this visitor, hiding in the long grass . . .
. . . just before I got to it.
There were less welcome visitors there too
After lunch, Annie and I went out into her garden and I indulged my liking for dead heading and more grass slaughter.
We all went off to collect Evie from nursery and I took a few pictures on the way to give a flavour of the varied architecture we passed.
We had to pause for a moment when Annie went into a shop in search of pomegranites and Mrs Tootlepedal bravely sat under a very outstanding building.
In the early evening, Mrs Tootlepedal and I went across the road to visit Evie’s other grandparents who had kindly invited us for a drink and nibbles.
It was good to have a collection of grandparents assembled in one place and an hour passed by in a flash and we were late back for our evening meal.
We go back to Langholm tomorrow and we will miss Evie’s company a lot.
