General zooming

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He was staying with my sister Mary last week when he spotted this visitor to her frosty garden. It was a few degrees above freezing here today without getting particularly warm, but it was dry and almost sunny when Sandy came down for coffee. Both he andContinue reading “General zooming”

Farewell to our visitors

Today’s guest picture is another of my brother Andrew’s shots from his trip along the Thames yesterday. He has a lot of things to do just now, and he says that his head is spinning a lot faster than the London Eye was going round. Annie cooked some cheese and marmite pinwheels yesterday, and theyContinue reading “Farewell to our visitors”

A Tootlepedal day

Today’s guest picture is another from my brother Andrew. He is still in London helping to sort out my sister’s affairs. He found time for a trip along the Thames today. It froze over night here but the temperature soon rose above freezing as the morning went on. It didn’t show any enthusiasm for actuallyContinue reading “A Tootlepedal day”

A quiet day

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone. He looked up the other day and found a digger in his garden. (He has kindly allowed the couple who are converting the church next door into a dwelling house to run their drainage through his estate.) I would like to start this post by thanking the many peopleContinue reading “A quiet day”

A surprise

Just to show that it still often sunny in East Wemyss, our son Tony sent us this picture taken a couple of days ago. We expected it to be cold this morning, but all the same we got quite a shock when we looked out of the window when we got up. The snow didn’tContinue reading “A surprise”

Home alone

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in East Wemyss. He was on holiday yesterday and was able to wait until the sun had come up before taking his dogs out for a walk in the woods. After a very welcome sunny day here yesterday, there was no chance of seeing the sun atContinue reading “Home alone”
