Plan B(iscuits)

Today’s guest picture from my brother Andrew shows a pond near his house. It was well filled by the rain associated with Christoph. We had another cool day here today, with the temperature at zero at breakfast time and only rising to 5°C for an hour in the early afternoon. But it was dry andContinue reading “Plan B(iscuits)”

Treading carefully

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. Because of the current restrictions, he has to walk very locally as we do, but he found both a fine tree and a fine day today. We had a fine day here too, but as it was back to being below freezing (-3°C) when we got up,Continue reading “Treading carefully”

Going nowhere

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. It shows once again that there are worse places than East Wemyss to walk your dogs as the sun goes down. We had not so much as a glimpse of the sun here today as the forecast miserable weather duly arrived. It was cold and often rainyContinue reading “Going nowhere”

Skyscaper

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony’s partner, Marianne. It shows the view from outside her place of work the other day. I might be happy about going to work early on a dark morning if I got views like this. We had more heavy rain showers over night, but they didn’t last tooContinue reading “Skyscaper”

Hitting the target

Today’ guest picture is another in the recent run of family sunsets. After London and Derby, here is our son Tony enjoying a delicate East Wemyss sunset today. We didn’t have much in the way of sun here but at least it stopped raining and that was very welcome. It was raining in the earlyContinue reading “Hitting the target”

Round and round today

Today’s guest picture is another from that demi-paradise, East Wemyss. I have used a lot of our son Tony’s pictures as guest pictures of the day but if he keeps sending me pictures like this one which he sent today, I will probably use a lot more. We had another chilly but calm day hereContinue reading “Round and round today”

Cooked up

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony in East Wemyss. It was a little bit warmer here today than yesterday, but as there was a chilly wind blowing, it didn’t feel much warmer. When Mrs Tootlepedal went off to combine coffee with buy out business, I was very happy, after a visit toContinue reading “Cooked up”

Top down or Langholm under a cloud

Today’s guest picture is from our son Tony in East Wemyss. He found a delightful beach in nearby Kirkcaldy when out walking his dogs. Our spell of dry weather under a ridge of high pressure is coming to an end, and it gave us a taste of things to come with ten tenths cloud fromContinue reading “Top down or Langholm under a cloud”

A little celebration

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who found a fine example of supportive crochet attached to a tree near his house. It turned out that a year had passed since my last birthday so I woke up today a year older (but not much wiser). The weather gods were in a benevolent moodContinue reading “A little celebration”

When you don’t walk through a storm

Today’s guest picture is another from Laura in Michigan and shows a handsome bridge in the Frederick Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, Grand Rapids. We discovered an absolutely horrible day here when we woke up, with sheets of rain being blown across the garden by a brisk wind. I needed galoshes and an umbrella justContinue reading “When you don’t walk through a storm”
