Jam today

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He is on a short holiday and visited Tadcaster on his way to the coast at Scarborough today. We had another sunny day here, and it didn’t take too long for the temperature to warm up enough for me to be able to go out for aContinue reading “Jam today”

Keeping occupied

Today’s guest picture comes from our son-in-law Joe. He got quite close to a swan. We had a dry day here, quite warm for the time of the year, but a brisk wind made it feel quite chilly when we ventured out. I am happy to report that Sandy has got home from hospital, andContinue reading “Keeping occupied”

An oasis of calm

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter Annie. Some late sunshine provided her with a show of nature’s own fairy lights using raindrops. After several windy days, it was a relief to wake up to a much quieter day today. It was chilly though, as a glance out of the window showed. Luckily, the snowContinue reading “An oasis of calm”

A very full day

Today’s guest picture shows the two faithful friends that accompany Tony on his photographic walks in East Wemyss. They are trained to sniff out a good photo opportunity. After our recent spell of warmish weather for the time of year, we got a colder day today. It was just above freezing when we got upContinue reading “A very full day”

Going out like a lamb

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. I had to look twice to see that East Wemyss does not in fact have mist shrouded mountains in the background. After a night of heavy wind, we were relieved to find that there had been none of the destructive gusts that brought trouble before. In fact,Continue reading “Going out like a lamb”

Taking things easy

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He found the lake in Markeaton Park in a very peaceful mood in the late afternoon while on a recent walk. We woke to a false dawn here. It was lovely when I looked over the roofs of Henry Street out of our back window. . .Continue reading “Taking things easy”

A more gentle stroll

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Caroline in Southsea. She came across a very fine floral hedge on her outing today. We enjoyed another blue sky day here, but once again it was chilly. It was below freezing when we got up, and though it did rise to a heady five degrees around noon,Continue reading “A more gentle stroll”

Keeping my head down

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. It shows that gloom was well spread across the country today, as she found a grey canal scene when she went for her walk in London. It wasn’t just grey here when we got up, it was pouring with rain as well. I had to get outContinue reading “Keeping my head down”

Less grey

Today’s guest picture come from my Lancashire correspondent Paul. He correctly divined that I would appreciate a colourful offering. We had a less grey day today, though it wasn’t much warmer. The better light deceived Dropscone who cycled round for coffee and scones. By the time that he got here, he was wishing that heContinue reading “Less grey”

A stroll with Mrs Tootlepedal

Today’s guest picture comes from my Manitoba correspondent, Mary Jo. At first sight it might look like a row of gallows along the roadside, but she tells me that they are used to take electrical connections over the sidewalks. The electricity is used to heat up oil or cylinder blocks before trying to start carsContinue reading “A stroll with Mrs Tootlepedal”
