Another fine day

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  He went for one of those walks which risky older people are encouraged to take in these troubled times.  He tells me that in his photograph you can see Derby City at the top right, the village of Breadsall in the top middle, and his suburb, Oakwood,Continue reading “Another fine day”

Offleg problems

Today’s guest picture comes from my camera club friend Simon.  He is offsetting the disappointment of the disappearance of all his normal work thanks to the coronavirus by taking healthy walks along the beautiful Esk between some humdrum jobs which he has taken to fill the gap. I took a walk in the garden afterContinue reading “Offleg problems”

Several unexpected appearances

Today’s guest picture is another from my brother Andrew’s walk at Ashbourne.  When he had crossed that narrow bridge featured as guest picture a couple of days ago, he found that an earlier landowner had dammed the little river and produced a big lake. We had a surprise today when we woke up.  We foundContinue reading “Several unexpected appearances”

Sunshine and singing

Today’s guest picture is another from Simon and this time shows the inside of the covered bridge between Switzerland and Liechtenstein.  I do not know whether the light at the end of the tunnel is in Switzerland or Liechtenstein. After yesterday’s extremely gloomy weather, we enjoyed a bright and cheerful day today, although it wasContinue reading “Sunshine and singing”

Three things

I was looking through my files when I found today’s guest picture.  It shows a Liverpool gull hoping to get Bruce to open his hotel window and give it a snack.  It was taken before Bruce went off to Helsinki.  He gets about a lot. It was sunny and windy here today but as thereContinue reading “Three things”

Recovering

Today’s guest picture is another from my brother Andrew.  As well as the moon, Derby has been visited by the sombre ‘Knife Angel’, an artwork designed to highlight the problem of knife crime in Britain. Autumn gave us a sharp reminder that it is here with a chilly start to the day, not far aboveContinue reading “Recovering”

Hidden delight

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce who is visiting the Glasgow area and found himself at the start of the West Highland way in Milngavie.  He is not going to walk it though as it is 96 miles long. I have always believed that the autumn equinox came on the 21st of SeptemberContinue reading “Hidden delight”

The name’s the same

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter Annie.  A friend, a fellow allotmenteer, brought her round some dahlias from Annie’s plot.  They are doing a lot better than ours are. We had another unsettled and unsettling day.  It is difficult to have a plan of action when the weather (and the forecast) is so changeable.Continue reading “The name’s the same”

In the garden

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan who was taking some refreshment in Russell Square when she noticed that she was being watched. We had a day of almost uninterrupted sunshine and light winds, ideal for pottering about the garden so this is what I did.  I thought of going for a bike rideContinue reading “In the garden”

A grey day cheered up by visitors

Today’s guest picture features one of our visitors today and just goes to prove that we are not the only recent grandparents about.  This is Dropscone taking the grandparenting business with Emily very seriously.  I am afraid that I don’t know who took the picture. We had a dry but grey morning, rather cooler thanContinue reading “A grey day cheered up by visitors”
