A splendid occasion

Today’s guest picture is another from Tony, proving that he can take in the bigger picture but not miss interesting detail at the same time. Encouraged by the splendid picture of a loaf bread which our daughter Annie sent us, I checked the recipe which she had also sent me and decided that it mightContinue reading “A splendid occasion”

Virtually English

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone’s archives.  For some reason he came upon the picture from 2004 of certain young(ish) golfers enjoying a break in Majorca to get away from Langholm’s winter weather.  It snowed and I still have the umbrella that I had to buy while we were there. I don’t know what theContinue reading “Virtually English”

Making use of some sunshine

Today’s guest picture is another from my brother Andrew’s recent encounter with the terrifying invaders of Derby. We had a really good sunny day today and with nothing on our calendar, I tried to make good use of it. The down side of a bright and sunny morning at this time of year is thatContinue reading “Making use of some sunshine”

Help from afar

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother who found this slightly unlikely windmill.  It is not producing flour but dispensing curried sausages in the market square in Nottingham.  Well I never, what next? We had a chilly day here but it was dry which was a relief after some overnight rain.  My leg rehabilitation isContinue reading “Help from afar”

Don’t mention the bike

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother’s Spanish tour.  I was excited when I saw compost in his email header but it turned out to be Santiago De Compostela and not interesting garden products. Santiago De Compostela looks quite interesting though. We had another grey morning after some overnight rain and once again a keenContinue reading “Don’t mention the bike”

Blow, blow thou winter wind

Today’s guest picture, absolutely the last in my locker, is an Irish sheep which wondered what Dropscone was doing in Ireland. We had a sub zero night but a sunny day and the temperature soon rose above zero although it didn’t make a serious effort to get much higher. If you were sheltered and outContinue reading “Blow, blow thou winter wind”

Rising above it

Today’s guest picture comes from my ex-colleague Ada.  She has been enjoying the sun in Tenerife and sent me this picture to torment me as we watched the snow come down here. Here is the contrasting view from our bedroom window this morning. And it kept on snowing for some time… …leading to some poorContinue reading “Rising above it”

Not all hail

My South African correspondent, Tom, thought that it was time to make the blog more attractive to the wider public so he has sent me this delectable picture of bare flesh.  They have to put up with a lot of fine weather down there. There was once again no danger of sunburn in Langholm asContinue reading “Not all hail”

Unexpected

Today’s guest picture is another from the delightfully sunny walk near Little Eaton that my brother took recently.  Here he was looking across the Derwent valley. By contrast, we were more than a little surprised to find our garden covered in snow when we woke up this morning. There had been some loose talk ofContinue reading “Unexpected”

A small step

Today’s guest picture is the last from Dropscone’s Malta holiday.  He had plenty of sunny weather but some breezy days too.  He tells me he didn’t go swimming in the sea. Dropscone is safely back from Malta, though he had some trouble with his car on the way home, and I was delighted to welcomeContinue reading “A small step”
