Up hill and down dale

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony and goes to prove that not only does East Wemyss have sea and sunshine, it has woodland walks too. After a chilly night, we had another very lovely spring day here, although it took a bit of time to warm up and it was cloudy in theContinue reading “Up hill and down dale”

Biscuits and cheese (and more goats)

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in East Wemyss. He was impressed by the efforts of this farmer to keep walkers on the straight and narrow way. We had another day of wind and occasional rain, but with some sunny spells as well. Although it was still fairly cool, there was enough sunshineContinue reading “Biscuits and cheese (and more goats)”

I didn’t give a fig

Today’s guest picture is a Waboom or Waggon Tree, so called as its wood was used to make waggon wheels because it is very tough It was sent to me by Tom from South Africa and brought a welcome splash of colour on a very dreary day. It is the only tree protea, Tom tellsContinue reading “I didn’t give a fig”

Slow and steady

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. East Wemyss has its own special path to the sun. We had another dry and chilly day here today. It was above freezing all day but only just, so the icy patches were still a peril for the unwary walker. After breakfast I stayed in and pedalledContinue reading “Slow and steady”

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”
