Stuck in treacle

Today’s guest picture is my final offering from Venetia’s American trip and shows more wildlife from Yellowstone.  This time it is a mule deer. The forecast was for a dry sunny day here today and I had hopes of a decent cycle ride but the good weather came with a frosty morning so I hadContinue reading “Stuck in treacle”

A pleasant surprise

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who was walking along the Thames last week when she came to Tower Bridge at low tide. We had another day of sunshine and showers here today but in an improvement on yesterday, there was more sunshine and less rain and when the rain came, it cameContinue reading “A pleasant surprise”

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”

The early worm escapes again

Today’s guest picture is one from a holiday that Mike Tinker took last year.  It shows a handsome bridge in Rhayader, Mid Wales. I had requested a better day after our recent dreich spell and my plea was heard and we enjoyed a beautifully sunny day today.  As an added and unexpected bonus, the temperatureContinue reading “The early worm escapes again”

A pedal, a toddle, tea and a cake and two tootles

Today’s guest picture is a south coast sunset, seen by my sister Mary from St Leonard’s-on-Sea. Once again, I managed to get up reasonably promptly and get out on my bicycle in good time.  I was due to do my stint in the Welcome to Langholm office at eleven o’clock so I only had timeContinue reading “A pedal, a toddle, tea and a cake and two tootles”

Tea and cake

Today’s guest picture shows Nunnington Hall in Yorkshire, a National Trust property, which my brother visited for his bank holiday treat. After a rainy night, the morning was relatively calm and dry and I might have gone for a pedal if I hadn’t been waylaid by some freshly made treacle scones.  Dropscone is going onContinue reading “Tea and cake”

All action

Today’s guest picture comes from Bruce’s tour of the Mediterranean.  This is Dubrovnik. My plan was to get up early and go for a cycle ride before the wind got too strong and I managed to get up quite early and go for a cycle ride but the wind was pretty strong anyway. As IContinue reading “All action”

Twotlepedal

Today’s guest picture is another from our daughter’s visit to the Chelsea Flower Show in May.  She took many pictures of the show gardens but this was one of my favourites. The hills were covered in misty clouds when we got up but the forecast offered us a warm, sunless day with the faint possibilityContinue reading “Twotlepedal”

Not much going on

My brother recently mislaid his phone and took this picture on a walk along The Edge from Edale in Derbyshire to test out his new one.  It looks good to me. Our rather unnerving spell of beautiful weather continued today but I couldn’t make the best of it at all. After breakfast, I had toContinue reading “Not much going on”

Under the rainbow

Today’s guest picture is the last from Tom’s wild life adventures in South Africa. We had another late start today but it didn’t matter much because it was miserable, wet and nasty morning, not fit for anything other than sitting over the breakfast table and doing the crossword.  We managed to get breakfast finished inContinue reading “Under the rainbow”
