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”

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”

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”

Dislegsia

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in East Wemyss. He wondered for a moment today if he was seeing a comet streaking across the sky, but it was nothing more exciting than an aeroplane catching the evening light. We had another ten-ten morning here today, 10°C inside the house and -10° outside. AContinue reading “Dislegsia”

A day for soup and a brisk walk

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. In spite of some morning frost, he still had some fine autumn colour to enjoy in Derby today. We had the first really frosty day of the winter today here with the thermometer touching -4°C (25°F) over night and staying below freezing until coffee time. It wasContinue reading “A day for soup and a brisk walk”

A satisfying day

Today’s guest picture comes from my walking friend Mark. He took this delightful ‘light and shade’ shot across the valley from Warbla yesterday while he was having a late afternoon stroll with his wife, Leila. We had another very pleasant day here today as far as the weather went, and the events of the dayContinue reading “A satisfying day”

Yet more rain and another wet walk

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. It is a riposte to Mary’s painted swan picture yesterday. It was seen in a shop window. The forecast was for a really horrible day so I was quite pleased that was merely a nasty wet day with some dry spells. Mrs Tootlepedal wasn’t pleased at all,Continue reading “Yet more rain and another wet walk”

Nursery slopes

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Alistair. He and his daughter Matilda have been cooking up Halloween treats. Although there was a little shower of rain in the morning, generally today was a much better day than we expected. We had so many visitors for coffee that they had to work in shifts. SandyContinue reading “Nursery slopes”

Hello and goodbye to the sunshine

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Mike Tinker. It shows the view from their cottage of Loch Feochan near Oban which he and Alison enjoyed during their recent holiday. The morning started off rather gloomily as far as the weather went but it was brightened up by the arrival of Dropscone, armed both withContinue reading “Hello and goodbye to the sunshine”

The weather gods have a laugh

Today’s guest picture reminds me that I shouldn’t complain about our weather too much. Blog reader Terena sent me this picture of current conditions in southern Saskatchewan. There was no sign of snow here but there was plenty of rain about. The forecast was for sunshine and showers and we hoped to find a gapContinue reading “The weather gods have a laugh”
