An unexpected opportunity

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter Annie. It shows that they have autumn colour in London too. We woke to sub zero temperatures (-2°C) but some cheerful sunshine made up for the cold. I had a look at the birds after breakfast . . . . . . and then went for a shortContinue reading “An unexpected opportunity”

Having my cake and eating it

Today’s guest picture completes a trilogy of recent East Wemyss scenes; day, dawn and dusk. This is dusk today, as seen by our son Tony. It was my birthday today, and the weather gods obliged by presenting Langholm with a beautifully sunny morning to greet me when I got up. Just to make sure thatContinue reading “Having my cake and eating it”

A spruce day

Today’s guest picture comes from ex Archive Group member Ken. He is on holiday in Faro, where he spotted a stork on top of a disused church. Once again, I am happy to have a sunny guest picture on a very dull day here. My social day started well with coffee and scones with Dropscone.Continue reading “A spruce day”

More sound advice

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He had a lot better weather than we had yesterday when he went for his walk. We had another grey morning here today, with the occasional hint of drizzle, and we were very quiet for a while after breakfast, until we got out into the garden forContinue reading “More sound advice”

Getting fairly high

Today’s guest picture comes from my friend Simon from Canonbie. He works all over Europe, and noticing an interest in bridges in recent guest pictures, he has kindly sent me a picture of two fine bridges taken from a third bridge at St Gallen in Switzerland. We had another fine, dry day here, with almostContinue reading “Getting fairly high”

And finally . . .

Today’s guest picture comes from my Lancashire correspondent Paul who is on a visit to the Lake District. He climbed Cat Bells and got this fine view of Derwent Water. Although the forecast had been full of rain, it was another case of “rain later” today, and we woke up to a quiet dry dayContinue reading “And finally . . .”

Beaten by the heat

Today’s guest picture comes from my friend Sandy. He went on a tour to Falkirk today where he met the Kelpies. Check the size of the people in the picture to get a feeling of the scale of these sculptures. Sandy reported that it had been a bit cooler in Falkirk than it had beenContinue reading “Beaten by the heat”

A day well spent

After I failed to take a picture of a crow on a cow yesterday, today’s guest picture fills the gap. It was very kindly sent to me from South Africa by Anne of ‘Something Over Tea’. It shows a pied crow on the back of a gemsbok, taken recently by Anne in the Mountain ZebraContinue reading “A day well spent”

Going quietly crackers

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He passed this peaceful scene on his way into Derby city centre recently. We had another chilly, occasionally windy and mostly sun free day today here. It didn’t inspire me with any wish to dash outside and take exercise, so I stayed in and watched the birdsContinue reading “Going quietly crackers”

Return to sender

I am short of current guest pictures so I have gone back to the files again to find a snowy dog in East Wemyss, or perhaps, a dog in snowy East Wemyss. We had another sunny and dry day here today, although it never got very warm in spite of the sun, with the temperatureContinue reading “Return to sender”
