Mobbed again

Today’s guest picture comes from my Lancastrian correspondent Paul’s visit to the Lake District. It shows a well positioned seat placed in memory of Hugh Walpole. It is looking out over Derwent Water. We had another warm and dry day here, though the sun only made occasional appearances. Indeed it even tried to rain asContinue reading “Mobbed again”

A welcome surprise after a pedal

Today’s guest picture comes from our neighbour Liz, who is down in the south at the moment. She visited East Carlton Park near Corby and came across this fine specimen. It made me think of Christmas for some reason. After several windy days, we had a much calmer day here today with the promise ofContinue reading “A welcome surprise after a pedal”

A cold start

Today’s guest picture is another from Paul’s visit to the Lake District. He was looking down on the aptly named Little Town from Catbells when he saw this view. The forecast was for a bright, chilly, and calm morning and the forecast was right. As I had a choir rehearsal in the afternoon, I thoughtContinue reading “A cold start”

A late tour

Today’s guest picture comes from Paul’s Lake District trip. He found the locals were looking at the visitors just as hard as the visitors were looking at the scenery. We had a rather curious day here. It was dry and occasionally sunny but there was brisk north wind blowing and it was extremely chilly forContinue reading “A late tour”

Shifty weather

Today’s guest picture comes from my Lancashire correspondent Paul who travelled to Cumbria for a break and found a fine day to walk round Crummock Water. We had a half in half day here, half fine and the other (bigger) half rainy. The weather forecasters struggled to put their finger on the timing of theContinue reading “Shifty weather”

A VIP visitor

Today’s guest picture is from Paul. He explored the tracks round Entwistle Reservoir earlier this month and found some very tall trees there. Here, we had a calmer and drier day than yesterday but there were one or two really sharp and gusty showers to stop us getting too excited about the return of summer.Continue reading “A VIP visitor”

Hill and valley

Today’s guest picture is another from Venetia’s visit to The Newt. She knows that I like a gate. When Mrs Tootlepedal had been up on the moor yesterday morning with the visiting party, she had been much struck by the heather, so after breakfast today, she took me up to have a look at forContinue reading “Hill and valley”

A very welcome sight in the garden

Today’s guest picture comes from my camera club friend Simon. After the easing of the lockdown, he has been able to get back to his regular employment of working at sports events and he found this splendidly twisted tree on a golf course. It is my policy only to use pictures taken on the dayContinue reading “A very welcome sight in the garden”

Occasional rain

Today’s guest picture comes from Gunta, a blog reader who lives on the west coast of America. She has combined two of my favourite things, a flying bird and a fuchsia, in one fantastic picture. We had a perfectly nice, almost summer day here today with the temperature at a very acceptable 15 to 17°CContinue reading “Occasional rain”

A rewarding walk.

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She encountered an unusual elephant in Regent’s Park while meeting a friend. I was a bit surprised to hear some heavy rain beating down on the house when I woke up, but by the time that I had actually got up for breakfast, the rain had stoppedContinue reading “A rewarding walk.”
