Surprise cows

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce He was in North Berwick on the east coast today as the sun set. There was no sign of sun here today, and we woke to grey and wet weather. I spent some of the morning walking up to the town under my umbrella to do someContinue reading “Surprise cows”

Diagonal

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent, Venetia. She visited Hestercombe Gardens, near Taunton, and has kindly sent me photographs of a selection of doors and openings. This is one of them. Others may follow. We had another grey day here to go with the very sombre international news, and the continuing indisposition ofContinue reading “Diagonal”

Crocus focus

The guest picture of the day, taken by her husband through the car windscreen, comes from my Canadian correspondent Mary Jo, who has been visiting British Columbia. There is quite a lot of snow there as you can see from the road verges. She tells me that people get helicopter rides to the top ofContinue reading “Crocus focus”

A better day

Today’s guest picture is another swan. This one was seen today by our son Alistair in his local park. Our day here started off grey, but as it was dry and not too windy, we were a lot happier than yesterday and went for two outings. Before the first outing, I checked on the birdsContinue reading “A better day”

Another wet day

For the guest picture on a very dull day, I have turned once again to our son Tony and a sunny day in East Wemyss to cheer us up. This was taken a day or two ago. Sadly, Tony himself is not so cheerful. He and Marianne were due to come here tomorrow to seeContinue reading “Another wet day”

Fade to grey again

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce who went for a walk with his wife round Alemoor reservoir near Hawick recently. He wondered whether they couldn’t have put up a few more warning notices if they had really tried. After yesterday’s sunshine, we were back to cold, grey and windy today, dry at leastContinue reading “Fade to grey again”

Out in the sun

Just to remind us of how lucky we are to get generally kindly weather here, Lucie from Brandon in Manitoba has sent me today’s guest picture. They get five months of winter there, and visits from rather ferocious wild turkeys too. You can see one on her neighbour’s doorstep if you look closely. We hadContinue reading “Out in the sun”

Making a splash

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He found a decent day recently to enjoy swanning around at his local boating pond. We didn’t enjoy a decent day here today, so our daughter and granddaughter, Annie and Evie, spent most of the day sheltering from the rain indoors. There wasn’t a dull moment though.Continue reading “Making a splash”

Safe arrival

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Alistair. He found an Edinburgh cousin of Mr Grumpy in his local park. The chief business of the day was a trip to Carlisle to collect Annie, our daughter, and Evie, our granddaughter, off the train from London. They are staying for a week, and this will meanContinue reading “Safe arrival”

Getting my goat

With another grey day on hand here, I needed colour for my guest picture of the day, so I was happy to look in my files and find this portrait of Tony’s dog Milo enjoying the sunshine in East Wemyss not long ago. There was a sprinkling of snow of the tops of the hillsContinue reading “Getting my goat”
