The B picture

I have got a great many potential guest pictures of the day on hand at the moment so if I don’t use them all, I apologise.  Today’s is a starfish which our son Tony spotted while out on a walk recently. We had a wildly different and exciting day today…..no, I am fibbing there.  WeContinue reading “The B picture”

Plan C today

Today’s guest picture comes from my Welsh correspondent Keiron.  He had a lovely day for a pedal along the towpath. It was cold and grey here when we got up and my original plan (Plan A) for the day was to go back to bed after breakfast, pull the covers over my head and hopeContinue reading “Plan C today”

Another fine day

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  He went for one of those walks which risky older people are encouraged to take in these troubled times.  He tells me that in his photograph you can see Derby City at the top right, the village of Breadsall in the top middle, and his suburb, Oakwood,Continue reading “Another fine day”

A last dry day

Today’s guest picture comes from one of our neighbour Liz’s morning walks with her dog.  They visited a lovely little waterfall on the Becks Burn.  As this involves quite a bit of scrambling, she deserves great credit for getting the shot. I started the active part of my day by cycling round to the shopContinue reading “A last dry day”

A date with Mrs Tootlepedal (she goes bananas)

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset corespondent, Venetia.  She visited the wonderfully named ‘The Newt’ estate where she came across this excellent sinuous bridge. Although we are not completely free from the threat of wet and windy weather yet, we awoke to a grey but dry day today.  The wind was still too briskContinue reading “A date with Mrs Tootlepedal (she goes bananas)”

Questions, questions, questions

I have a rich seam of guest pictures at the moment, so thank you to all who have contributed.  Today’s comes from my sister Mary.  She went up towards the Greenwich Observatory and looked back behind her on the way. The slight warming of our weather continued today and there was no need to useContinue reading “Questions, questions, questions”

A tootle and a pedal…and a walk…and a scone

Today”s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  Looking through my files I see that I didn’t use this one from his highland holiday earlier in the year.  I thought that it should have gone in then so I have put it in now. It shows keen canoeists in Plockton. We had a pleasant andContinue reading “A tootle and a pedal…and a walk…and a scone”

Going wild

Today’s guest picture shows a feature of the Sheffield Peace Gardens. They were seen by Bruce on a recent stay in the city. Today started very oddly when I woke up realising that I had just had a good night’s sleep.  This was so unusual that it took me until Dropscone arrived with Friday treacle sconesContinue reading “Going wild”

An eponymous day with added extra

Today’s guest picture comes from Canada.  Lucie, who sent it to me, is scratching her head as to why she can’t find people anxious to share a cup of tea with her on her patio when there are such comfortable looking cushions to sit on. At least Lucie has had some sunshine.  We got anotherContinue reading “An eponymous day with added extra”

Conversations

The guest picture of the day is a curious sculpture of a bicycle on a  railway line which Bruce encountered on his recent Annan walk. We had a splendidly sunny day today but from a cycling point of view, it wasn’t as useful as it might have been as it was also very cold forContinue reading “Conversations”
