Another morning pedal

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Sharon. She was out last night to see the town being painted red. Well, not exactly painted, more all lit up. It was a message called ‘Light it in Red’ . The Buccleuch Centre was illuminated by Centre Stage Theatre to bring attention to the current plight ofContinue reading “Another morning pedal”

Suppé after tea

Today’s guest picture comes from my Sydney correspondent Stephen.  As he came out of the Sydney Opera House after a performance of Carmen yesterday, he saw this striking tribute to the many volunteer firemen who have been battling the blazes in Australia. After a restless night disturbed by strong wind and heavy rain,  we gotContinue reading “Suppé after tea”

Song cycle

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter Annie.  She and Joe took Evie to the children’s zoo at Battersea Park but as Evie fell asleep, Joe and Annie did most of the animal watching for her. I started the day with a visit to the producers’ market at the Buccleuch Centre where I made purchasesContinue reading “Song cycle”

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”

Walking the walk

Today’s guest picture comes from Stephen, my Australian correspondent.  He says that it is easy to see the effects of the bush fires raging in the Blue Mountains while walking the streets of Sydney, especially as the sun comes up behind the haze at dawn. We were hoping for some sun here today and weContinue reading “Walking the walk”

Three things

I was looking through my files when I found today’s guest picture.  It shows a Liverpool gull hoping to get Bruce to open his hotel window and give it a snack.  It was taken before Bruce went off to Helsinki.  He gets about a lot. It was sunny and windy here today but as thereContinue reading “Three things”

A sunny afternoon and an evening of enjoyable misery

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone’s recent Highland tour.  He and his daughter came upon an art deco tidal swimming pool near Banff.  They didn’t go for a dip though as it was closed.   Money is being found for repairs so maybe next time? I woke to a heavy cold and some heavy rain toContinue reading “A sunny afternoon and an evening of enjoyable misery”

Talking to my legs

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Gavin.  He is visiting his son in California where he was impressed to see that every other parking space at his son’s place of work had an electric charging point.. We had an unusual day here today in that it didn’t rain at all.  People were walking roundContinue reading “Talking to my legs”

A change of scene

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by my sister Mary.  She was joined by a jackdaw for breakfast at Kenwood House, but it came too late as she had cleared her plate. The forecast was for rain in the afternoon so I might, if I had been energetic and well organised, gone out forContinue reading “A change of scene”

A Shaw thing

Today’s guest picture is another from Venetia’s African odyssey.  She is putting a full account of the trip on her blog which can be found here. Yesterday’s rest had improved my foot a little but as there is still some way to go, I had another day where I didn’t venture out of house orContinue reading “A Shaw thing”
