A baker’s dozen

Today’s guest picture comes from Eike from the Bergisches Land, a low mountain range region within the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. He is the son of long time reader Zyriacus. Knowing my fondness for fungi, he has kindly sent me some local examples from his area. The weather this week has been better thanContinue reading “A baker’s dozen”

Not quite all there

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan. She was very impressed by this cheerful stall which she encountered on an outing. She didn’t tell me whether she had sampled its wares. We were greeted by a sunny morning with cloudless blue skies here today, and a crisp coolness to go with it. Once again,Continue reading “Not quite all there”

Up and down and round and round

Today’s guest picture comes from a walk in Warwickshire which my brother Andrew took last week. I have been trying to work out what is going on at the end of the field but have failed. After yesterday’s gloomy weather, we woke to brilliant sunshine today. For once, I didn’t waste a lot of timeContinue reading “Up and down and round and round”

Strange objects

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. Our sister Susan is visiting him at the moment and he introduced her to the chain ferry over the River Soar. She enjoyed it a lot as you can see. We had another fine day here after another cold morning. The temperature was low enough to putContinue reading “Strange objects”

More rain

Toady’s guest picture comes from our neighbour Liz. She came across these very large fungi on one of her regular morning walks recently. It had been raining overnight and it was still raining when we got up. It continued to rain and as I thought that it might never stop, I nipped out into theContinue reading “More rain”

A non standard day

Today’s guest picture comes from Natasha, the daughter of our son Tony’s partner Marianne. Natasha was looking across the Forth at Newhaven Harbour on the Edinburgh shore. It was just as sunny today on her side as it always seems to be on Tony’s side. We had a better day today than our recent coolContinue reading “A non standard day”

Another eponymous day

Today’s guest picture comes from Venetia.  These are just a few of a large flock of white storks which she saw flying over her in Morocco. As it was Friday, Dropscone came round for coffee but in a big turn up for the books, he brought no treacle scones with him.  Plain scones were theContinue reading “Another eponymous day”

Going the other way

Today’s guest picture comes from a Welsh correspondent Keiron.  He saw this fine tree in Ystradgynlais a day or two ago and thought that I might like it as I am fond of trees. It was a sunny day here today, but as it was also freezing when we got up, we were in noContinue reading “Going the other way”

Roundabout

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew’s Welsh trip.  Having left Chester and climbed Snowdon, he came to rest on Anglesey where he met the sea…and my sister Mary. Our spell of dry weather continued but once again with an east wind to make sure that we didn’t forget that it is still earlyContinue reading “Roundabout”

An eponymous day with cheerful legs

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who started a nine mile walk today by crossing the River Manifold over this handsome bridge. We had a lovely day here as well but it was decidedly chilly at first so it took me some time to get going on my bike. I checked on theContinue reading “An eponymous day with cheerful legs”
