In Haydn

Today’s guest picture is another of my brother’s Derby insects.  He suspects that the face of this grasshopper might have been modelled on our prime minister after recent events. We finally got a reasonably calm and occasionally sunny morning today and as it was a good day for gardening, it was almost inevitable that MrsContinue reading “In Haydn”

A musical cure

Today’s guest picture is a cheery looking cottage with a rather mournful sign.  My friend Bruce visited it in the village of Eyam in the Derbyshire dales. Our spell of grey, cold and windy weather continued today and as I woke up with a pain in my side which had come from who knows whereContinue reading “A musical cure”

We had another fine and frosty morning but I didn’t have a great deal of time to enjoy it as there was a stew to make for the slow cookerContinue reading “With a song and a smile”

Today’s guest picture shows a view of the River Trent near Swarkestone Bridge.  My brother Andrew took the shot while out with his walking group. The wind was in the process of moving round from east to west today but it did it very gently and gave us a wonderfully sunny autumn morning on theContinue reading “Cathedral concert”

Dropscone came round with some scones in hand to have aContinue reading “Hopeful”
