Through a glass darkly

Today’s guest picture comes from our younger son Alistair.  He came across these Christmas baubles in the Botanical gardens in Edinburgh.  As they were the size of footballs, he was quite impressed by them. We didn’t have much sparkle here as it was another grey and chilly day.  Any brightness was provided by the arrivalContinue reading “Through a glass darkly”

Good shots

Today’s guest picture comes from Andy Little, one of our camera club members.  He very kindly sent me this picture of an unusual bird which he saw when visiting New Lanark. I had a steadily busy but not frantic day today.  Encouraged by Mrs Tootlepedal, I got up reasonably early and went out for aContinue reading “Good shots”

B picture

Today’s colourful guest picture comes from my sister Mary who recently visited the Isabella Plantation in Richmond Park, London. Apart from a couple of brief showers, we had a much better day today.  It wasn’t a lot warmer in theory but a very welcome break from the recent strong winds made it feel a lotContinue reading “B picture”

A grand old Duke of York day

To make a change from endless pictures of moss, my guest picture of the day is a moose The picture came from Venetia, who saw the moose in Grand Teton National Park. The wind is in the east at the moment, which often means sunnier days for us and this was the case today. ItContinue reading “A grand old Duke of York day”

Some welcome warmth

Today’s guest picture comes from Mike Tinker who is on holiday in Wales.  He tells me , “I came across this interesting ancient monument while walking here in New Radnor -it is strangely called Four Stones.”  I think that I have worked out how it got its title. We had a really pleasant day today –Continue reading “Some welcome warmth”

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”

Feeling better

Today’s guest picture is one from my brother’s archive.  He visited Roche Abbey in August and enjoyed this neat little bridge. I woke up feeling a great deal better than yesterday but with a few aches and pains still in residence.  It seemed like case for Dr Velo and so after the regulation amount ofContinue reading “Feeling better”

Danza pluviale

Today’s picture shows my sister-in-law, Catherine emerging from a tunnel on the Manifold and Hamps river cycleway in Staffordshire.   She was on a cycle outing with my energetic brother Andrew. Round here, the only person biking in the early morning was Dropscone who was once again cycling twenty miles to bring scones to our morningContinue reading “Danza pluviale”

Dodging the rain

Today’s picture, sent by Gavin who is on a wet walk in the Peal District, shows the Peak Forest Canal basin at Buxworth.  I particularly like canals so it gets in at full size.. Once again the worst of the weather seems to have given us the go by.  My recorder playing friend Sue, whoContinue reading “Dodging the rain”
