Mrs Tootlepedal goes up in the world

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She has a very tall wall at the bottom of her little garden and she was quite surprised to look up one day to find a fox sitting on top of it. She is going to try to get a better picture next time it appears there.Continue reading “Mrs Tootlepedal goes up in the world”

A day of sitting around

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Caroline from Southsea on the south coast. She attended a coffee morning in a well sheltered garden where a small group of carefully separated friends were able to meet and chat. Our garden coffee gathering here was more open to the elements… …but fortunately, kind temperatures and lightContinue reading “A day of sitting around”

Wired up

Today’s guest picture comes from my camera club friend Simon who noticed these interesting additions to a pylon when he was out and about near Canonbie. They are going to renew the cables. We had another beautiful day here today. As this was the first day of summer, there is a slight worry that summerContinue reading “Wired up”

More sunshine

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony and shows one of his dogs relaxing in his garden.  He tells me that he sun (almost) always shines in East Wemyss. When I woke up this morning, I was very happy to find that the sun was shining and my feet were not hurting.  Life wasContinue reading “More sunshine”

A drop in the ocean

Today’s guest picture is another from Venetia’s trip to Madeira. The forecasters are having a hard time at present getting the details of the weather correct, largely I suspect because the weather is so unusual these days that their computer models are not provided with enough helpful historic data.  All the same, various forecasts wereContinue reading “A drop in the ocean”

What is this wet stuff falling out of the sky?

Today’s guest picture was taken by my sister Susan on a visit to Reading.  It shows the Maiwand Lion, commemorating the dead of the Berkshire Regiment of Foot at Girishk Maiwand and Kandahar in 1880. The British were defeated at Girishk Maiwand by the Afghan army at a high cost to both sides during theContinue reading “What is this wet stuff falling out of the sky?”

Another song cycle day

The guest picture of the day comes courtesy of Mary Jo from Manitoba who asked her friend Lucie to send me this really stunning picture of a bison, with which Lucie had a close encounter in Riding Mountain National Park. The forecast shows a lot of rain showers coming our way over the next weekContinue reading “Another song cycle day”

An accidental visit

Today’s guest picture shows the west face of Hereford Cathedral.  My brother likes imposing church buildings. Having had their little bit of fun yesterday, the weather gods were in a cheerier mood today and helped me out. After breakfast, Mrs Tootlepedal was looking out of the kitchen window when she thought that she saw aContinue reading “An accidental visit”
