A ride of four halves

Today’s guest picture comes from another visit to Regents Park by my sister Mary. She would like to be playing tennis there, but that is not possible yet so she enjoys the flowers instead. We had another unpromising morning and light drizzle put paid to a garden coffee meeting. Luckily a rather annoying crossword keptContinue reading “A ride of four halves”

Garden party

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent Venetia, who if it had not been for the virus would have been visiting us this month. She has a fine crop of daisies in her garden. The temperature warmed up a bit today and thanks to the slight relaxation of the lockdown, we were able toContinue reading “Garden party”

This way and that

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  He wants us to know that the sun is still shining in East Wemyss. Our spell of chilly mornings and warm afternoons continued, and as the sun was out all day in a cloudless blue sky, it was no hardship to get dressed a little earlier thanContinue reading “This way and that”

Going downhill slowly

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  On his permitted walk, he revisited a blue bell wood that he found unsatisfactory when he photographed it on a walk not long ago and found it much more satisfactory today. We had another sunny start to our day and the neighbourhood alfresco coffee morning team enjoyedContinue reading “Going downhill slowly”

More sunshine

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony and shows one of his dogs relaxing in his garden.  He tells me that he sun (almost) always shines in East Wemyss. When I woke up this morning, I was very happy to find that the sun was shining and my feet were not hurting.  Life wasContinue reading “More sunshine”

Short in the tooth

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Alistair, and shows his daughter Matilda in the nice new dress which her Granny has made for her. No prizes for guessing the theme of the performance. We had much better weather today which was very welcome, but it turned out that I had lost a filling fromContinue reading “Short in the tooth”

Hallelujah

Today’s guest picture comes from my friend Bruce who visited the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway which runs (rather smokey) heritage trains between Duffield and Wirksworth, in the Derbyshire Peak District.  By the way, Henry Ellison was built in 1947 so it may be heritage but it is still younger than me. Easter Sunday was another dayContinue reading “Hallelujah”

Sibling arrivalry

Today’s guest picture shows an ingenious planter which my brother Andrew encountered on the platform of Penrith Station….. …where he also met my sisters Mary and Susan.  More about that later. We had another generally fine day with just the merest touch of rain in the early evening but the sun was not so hardContinue reading “Sibling arrivalry”

Well worth the wait

Today’s guest picture comes from another inveterate traveller.  My Somerset correspondent Venetia has been eyeing up some tasty chocolates in Toulouse. It was a day that would have been familiar to fans of Waiting for Godot….except that in this version, Godot finally turned up. While I was waiting for the call from the bike shopContinue reading “Well worth the wait”

Hedge scratching

Today’s guest picture comes from a visit my sister Mary paid to the Isabella Plantation in Richmond Park a day or two ago.  It seems like a very good place to visit at this time of year. We had yet another dry and windy day today but it was a bit warmer than it hasContinue reading “Hedge scratching”
