A light snooze

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who took this picture of the Thames on her way to the National Film Theatre. After the excitements of going to Edinburgh one day and touring the country the next for me, and visiting the south for a week and then touring the country for Mrs Tootlepedal,Continue reading “A light snooze”

A grand tour

Today’s guest picture, taken by Bruce’s daughter and forwarded to me by him, shows Guthrie, having woken up, wondering where the next meal is coming from. We were up promptly in the morning but got away a few minutes behind schedule on a trip to Lockerbie.  This time we were not catching the train toContinue reading “A grand tour”

A happy ending

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone’s sister Liz and shows the beach at Cromer in Norfolk which she visited last month while on a walking holiday. Very stiff winds put all thoughts of an early morning pedal out of my mind and I did a little shopping instead and then had the pleasure of eatingContinue reading “A happy ending”

Another day, another orchid

The guest picture of the day was taken in Hyde park by my sister Mary a week or so ago. It shows the Italian Garden there. Mrs Tootlepedal had had a very successful day watching her brother fly a Spitfire (he’s a pilot and he really did fly it, not just fly in it) andContinue reading “Another day, another orchid”

Cutting it fine

Today’s guest picture was very kindly sent to me from the USA  by fellow blogger Amy Corron who knows that I like rabbits.  It shows a regualr visitor eating blueberries in her yard. It was hard to believe that it was the middle of summer when we looked out of the window this morning.  ItContinue reading “Cutting it fine”

A wild ride

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone and shows just how idyllic playing golf on the east coast of Scotland can be….if you choose the right day. It was raining after breakfast so I postponed a planned pedal and this was a blessing in disguise as it enabled me to enjoy some of Dropscone’s excellent treacleContinue reading “A wild ride”

A sight for sore eyes

Today’s guest picture was not taken by a guest but by me when I was a guest in someone else’s garden this evening. It was gloomy and damp when we got up but at least the wind had dropped so it felt warmer than the 11 degrees on the thermometer indicated. The weather wasn’t muchContinue reading “A sight for sore eyes”

It takes two to tootle

Today’s guest picture, sent by my sister Mary, shows Mr Grumpy’s London cousin trying to pass himself off as a swan or goose at the Serpentine. We were threatened with rain today but in the end it didn’t arrive until the evening and we had a dry, cool day instead.  I had to begin theContinue reading “It takes two to tootle”

Feeling the heat

Today’s picture, sent to me by her mother Clare, shows Matilda adopting the only possible solution to coping with  some unusually warm weather in Edinburgh by sitting in a frying pan. It was 28°C here today, which coming after the many recent weeks of 13°C was both surprising and a little hard to take.  StillContinue reading “Feeling the heat”

Putting my foot down

Today’s guest picture shows Lincoln Cathedral, seen from the Castle walls.  It was taken by my sister Mary on a recent visit. We woke to heavy rain and strong winds but as Mrs Tootlepedal and my sister Susan went off to church and I spent the time inside sorting out the framing of my picturesContinue reading “Putting my foot down”
