Biscuits and cheese (and more goats)

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in East Wemyss. He was impressed by the efforts of this farmer to keep walkers on the straight and narrow way. We had another day of wind and occasional rain, but with some sunny spells as well. Although it was still fairly cool, there was enough sunshineContinue reading “Biscuits and cheese (and more goats)”

Found

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent, Venetia. She noticed this ferocious looking bird while on a walk from her home to collect her car from the garage. I am starting today’s post with a backward reference to yesterday’s post. It was entitled, “Taxing day” and alert readers must have wondered why. I wasContinue reading “Found”

A parting of the ways

Today’s guest picture is another of Venetia’s interesting Somerset trees. To be fair to the weather today, it was slightly warmer than it has been, but as it was windier too and there was often a bit of rain about, it was far from being a pleasant day. We had to tend to the cheeseContinue reading “A parting of the ways”

Home and awhey

Today’s guest picture comes from my occasional correspondent Elaine. She found the pond at the Lockerbie nature reserve well frozen the other day. As the pond was a curling rink in a previous existence, there must be ex-curlers looking at it with regret. We had another grey and chilly day here today, but it didn’tContinue reading “Home and awhey”

A day of unrest

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in sunny East Wemyss. Three days ago, his sun had unusual sparkle. We needed a guest picture with sparkle because after a gloomy day yesterday, we had another fairly gloomy day today. It was dry and warmer than it has been lately, and it stayed above freezingContinue reading “A day of unrest”

Caution rewarded

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. It goes to show that as well as a lot of sunshine, they have terrific fungus in East Wemyss too. As the new year dawned, we were greeted by the moon. It had obviously had a late night out and was showing among the pink morning cloudsContinue reading “Caution rewarded”

Wrong way round

I am short of guest pictures so I have had to slip back earlier in the week to find this picture of golden East Wemyss from our son Tony. It was worth going back for, I thought. There was not a hint of sun in the sky when we got up here, and there wasContinue reading “Wrong way round”

Not out

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. Like my sister Mary in London, he enjoyed a good sunset in Derby yesterday evening (with added water). We didn’t enjoy anything very much here today. It was cloud right down to the ground all day from morning until night. After breakfast, Mrs Tootlepedal did manage aContinue reading “Not out”

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”

Chalk and cheese

Today’s guest picture comes from my youngest sister Caroline. She lives on the south coast of England and found a lovely day recently to look across the sea to the Isle of Wight. (As far as today’s title goes, I don’t know why chalk and cheese are considered to be so different that they appearContinue reading “Chalk and cheese”
