Song, birds and bees

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He found a perfect moment this afternoon for a riverside view in Derby. We had another cool, but not cold day here, and apart from some very light drizzle in the afternoon, it stayed dry. We were thus able to cycle to church after breakfast, where asContinue reading “Song, birds and bees”

A pedal and a tootle

Today’s guest picture comes from Mary Jo, my Manitoba correspondent. She has crossed the Atlantic and is visiting London where she found this interestingly repaired door in Highgate Cemetery. We had another dry day here, with quite a bit of sunshine to take the chill off a cool morning. We started the day by cyclingContinue reading “A pedal and a tootle”

An improving day

As we had a very wet and grey morning here, I am pleased to have an East Wemyss dawn as the guest picture of the day by way of a contrast. Tony was up early again. It was so wet here in the morning that Dropscone came round in his car for coffee instead ofContinue reading “An improving day”

Two choirs and a stroll

Today’s guest picture is another from our friend Gavin’s trip to the Isle of Coll. They do good beaches on Coll. This is Crossapol Bay. The day here started well with a set of good old fashioned hymns at the church service, with the added benefits of easy bass parts for me to sing. WithContinue reading “Two choirs and a stroll”

Better late than never

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Gavin. He has added to the collection of Scottish islands that he has visited by going to the Isle of Coll of our west coast. We had another dry and fine day here with quite a bit of sunshine. The active part of it started with first aContinue reading “Better late than never”

Double delight in the dark

Today’s guest picture comes from my camera club friend Simon. His work has taken him to Memphis, as you can see. We didn’t have any of that fine sunshine here today, and it remained gloomy all day with occasional drizzle to make sure that we didn’t get too cheerful at any point. I spent aContinue reading “Double delight in the dark”

Successful synthesising

You can’t have too many East Wemyss dawns in my opinion so today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony. It was taken yesterday. I had a slow start to the day but I managed to squeeze a couple of pages of the newspaper index into the Archive Group database, the first for 1904Continue reading “Successful synthesising”

Two choirs and three bridges

Today’s guest picture comes from my files. Looking back, I don’t think that I have used this fine slightly surreal shot taken by my brother Andrew. (If I have, it deserves another outing anyway.) It was rainy when we got up, and the prospects did not look good. However, it stopped raining as soon asContinue reading “Two choirs and three bridges”

A fairly dull day

Today’s picture comes from our younger son Alistair. He came across this very fine fungus last week. We had a marked change in the weather here today, with some very heavy but short showers interrupting a grey and damp day. Luckily, the early rain had stopped by the time that I walked up to theContinue reading “A fairly dull day”

Up and down and round and round

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in East Wemyss. He was up so early yesterday morning that he beat the sun to it. There was no sign of sun here this morning, and it was another grey day as we drove up to Cronksbank to help out at the Tarras Valley Nature ReserveContinue reading “Up and down and round and round”
