Just ducky

I have two pictures of the day today because I couldn’t choose between them. They are both so fine that I am going to give the a bigger size than usual. The first is a picture from my sister Susan’s recent trip to Switzerland. ..and the second is from even further afield. Joyce has sentContinue reading “Just ducky”

Expert analysis

Today’s picture is of my flute pupil, Luke. He has been practising hard and is making good progress. The weather dawned fine and warm but the forecast threatened rain later. Dropscone was taking medical advice so I was on my own for a pedal. I had met Kevin, a near neighbour and bike enthusiast, atContinue reading “Expert analysis”

A full day

Today’s picture shows a fine bunch of garden bluebells It rained very heavily during the night but by the time I got up, the weather was fine if cloudy.

Round and round

Today’s picture, sent to me by my sister Susan, is of my sister Mary. Nice weather in London too. After the excitement of our trip to the Lake District, we had a rather humdrum day to day. In the morning, I set off to do a gentle circuit of the morning route, trying not toContinue reading “Round and round”

Another pedal, another tootle

Today’s picture is yet another tulip. I can’t help it. Although we are still waiting for some rain, the weather took a more suitable turn for April today with a brisk and rather chilly wind. We said goodbye to our B & B guest who was cycling to Land’s End. He has been enjoying aContinue reading “Another pedal, another tootle”
