Out and back

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony’s Highland holiday. He was looking across at Skye from the mainland when he took this shot. We were offered a fine morning with light winds so the sensible thing to do would be for me to get going as soon after breakfast as possible if IContinue reading “Out and back”

Two short walks

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce who met an ugly customer when he was walking in the woods today. We were blessed with a genuine summer day here, warm from start to finish, and with plenty of sunshine to be going on with. I took advantage of the good weather to put aContinue reading “Two short walks”

Swift action

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in East Wemyss where the perpetual sunshine has brought his well protected vegetable plot on nicely. Having had fine weather suitable for June in May, we are back to having cool and changeable weather suitable for May in June. It was a day of occasional showers andContinue reading “Swift action”

The other half

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset corespondent Venetia. She was visited by a greater spotted woodpecker the other day. We had a pleasantly sunny morning here, with enough wind to ensure that it didn’t get too hot for the morning street coffee meeting. We were greatly entertained as we sipped and chatted by aContinue reading “The other half”

Attila the gardener at work

Today’s guest picture is another from Bruce’s recent walk.  As well as his uncommunicative stranger, he encountered fifty shades of green.  I don’t think there can be a greener local view than this one. After the excitements of yesterday, it was back to the well trodden paths of lockdown today.  I rose late, ate aContinue reading “Attila the gardener at work”

Shaken (but not stirred)

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce.  Meeting a stranger while out on a recent walk, he engaged him in polite but socially distanced conversation but found him rather uncommunicative. I had a disturbing morning.  We had arranged a visit from our bench supplier to discuss a modification to the new bench and heContinue reading “Shaken (but not stirred)”

Going green

I have had a rush of good guest pictures sent to me recently but I thought that the most appropriate one to celebrate the warmest day of the year here in Langholm today would be this one from Mary Jo in Manitoba.  It shows her weather today.  She is a bit fed up to sayContinue reading “Going green”

Pushing the envelope

Today’s guest picture is a puzzle.  Is it the south of France? Is is a tropical Isle? No, it is sunny Wemyss turning up trumps yet again for the lens of our son Tony. We had a touch of frost in the very early morning but by the time that I got up the skyContinue reading “Pushing the envelope”

Lightly spotted

Today’s guest picture is a very painterly photograph of a nesting swan on a canal taken by my Welsh correspondent Keiron on his way to work today. There was a theoretical chance of rain today but once again we had a sunny morning and the street socially distanced coffee group (fortified by date rolls)  wasContinue reading “Lightly spotted”

Real life

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who knows that I like a neat lawn.  She found this one near a well known large house. It was one of those days when it might have rained at any time and there was evidence that it had rained… …but in the end, it kept reasonablyContinue reading “Real life”
