The end of the road

Today’s guest picture comes from a couple of weeks ago and shows a rather slanted view. The sunshine will give you a clue that it was taken in East Wemyss by our son Tony. It was cooler than yesterday here, but it was fine again and the wind was nippy but fairly gentle. We spentContinue reading “The end of the road”

On the up

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She visited the Secret Garden in Regents Park on one of her recent walks. She was the only one there. After a rather cheerless day yesterday, things got better today. The forecast of sunshine and showers provided us with a good deal more sunshine than showers forContinue reading “On the up”

A twist of fate

Today’s guest picture comes from from my Welsh correspondent Keiron. It shows a handsome bandstand in Victoria Park, Neath. With the clouds sitting heavily on top of our hills when we got up, the day started out slightly chilly and grey. This didn’t stop me walking round to the shop for essential supplies after breakfast,Continue reading “A twist of fate”

Holding back

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He found some good weather today to visit the Lenton Firs summerhouse with its 200 year old rockery. It is in the grounds of Nottingham University. We had another fine, dry day here with light winds. It had been cold overnight and once again the day tookContinue reading “Holding back”

The last post

Today’s guest picture is the final one from Venetia’s Moroccan trip.  It shows a gecko basking in the sun. It was another grey day here but slightly warmer and not actually raining as I walked to church in the morning.  Our bus driving organist had been called to do an an extra shift owing toContinue reading “The last post”

Paying attention

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  He visited Kedlestone Hall in Derbyshire on one of the better recent days. Mrs Tootlepedal went off to yet another meeting after breakfast and inspired by her vigour, I managed to get myself into my cycling gear and out of the house before coffee time.  Admittedly, IContinue reading “Paying attention”

The lady varnishes

Today’s guest picture is another from Tony.  He has been looking up lately and as well as holes in clouds, he has seen the moon. We had another fine sunny day here today and because the wind had dropped, it felt really warm and we were able to discard several layers of winter clothing. WeContinue reading “The lady varnishes”

Fingers crossed

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary’s visit to Kew Gardens.  The sedentary minded can view the gardens from this land train. We had a fair day here today with very occasional sun, a good breeze and some late rain.  It meant that Mrs Tootlepedal could garden until she was exhausted and I couldContinue reading “Fingers crossed”
