An elderly couple definitely over the hill

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He had a lovely day for a visit to King’s Lynn where he took this stunning photograph of the customs house. We had a fine day here but nothing like as sunny as that. It was warm and dry when we cycled to church. The choir isContinue reading “An elderly couple definitely over the hill”

Over the hill

Today’s guest picture comes from Sandy. We had some spare seed potatoes earlier this year and he took them off our hands, planted them in a big bag, and looked after them. He has been rewarded with a good crop. Our weather has settled down again to normal summer temperatures, and I had no needContinue reading “Over the hill”

We had yet another fine and generally sunny day today and it was pleasant but a little chilly when I rose much earlier than usual and went off to fill theContinue reading “Short sighted”

Plum crazy

Today’s guest picture shows Devonport,  near Auckland in New Zealand. My brother travelled there last week.It was a good day today in many ways.  The sun shone, I got in a cycle ride and a walk, my hip was much improved and best of all, there were many ripe plums from our tree to beContinue reading “Plum crazy”
