Subdued colours

Today’s long and thin guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who is in London at the moment. He passed by the Shard, an extremely tall building, but claimed that he couldn’t see the point of it. Although the temperature was comfortably above freezing today, it wasn’t a very welcoming day, being grey again andContinue reading “Subdued colours”

A niggle keeps me in

I looked in my files for a guest photo today and found this fine sunset in Worcester, SA, sent to me just before Christmas by Langholm exile Tom. It was another day here with neither a visible sunrise nor much of a sunset as it was grey all day. It was warm for the timeContinue reading “A niggle keeps me in”

Hunting the hugger

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter Annie. It shows the sparkly cloak that our granddaughter Evie was wearing today. Some children have all the luck We had a very far from sparkling day here today. The weather varied between grey and very grey, not quite drizzling and actually drizzling. On the plus side, itContinue reading “Hunting the hugger”

A hint of spring?

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She went down to the Thames for a walk yesterday and found a display of sitting gulls in front of Blackfriars Station on the bridge. We had another grey and chilly day here, with a north westerly breeze making sure that we didn’t get too excited byContinue reading “A hint of spring?”

Mostly dodging the showers

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. He spotted this interesting cloud over East Wemyss. We had very variable weather here today with some heavy showers, some very gusty winds, and a bit of sunshine thrown in from time to time. One of the heavy showers came in the morning, but as we wereContinue reading “Mostly dodging the showers”

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”

A new shopping experience

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He saw this object in an art shop window and wondered what market it was aimed at. Short fat dog lovers perhaps? It was a bit warmer today, but as the clouds were down and the wind was up, it didn’t feel very cheerful as we cycledContinue reading “A new shopping experience”

Winding about

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. He came across a tree full of waxwings in East Wemyss yesterday. It was grey and chilly when we got up here this morning, but it was above freezing so that was welcome. After a leisurely breakfast and an enjoyable crossword, I roused myself enough to haveContinue reading “Winding about”

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”
