Off to see the sea

Today’s guest picture is another from Mary Jo’s trip to New Zealand.  It shows South Taranaki Bight, a fierce place, Mary Jo says.  She is back in Canada and having to spend a fortnight ‘self isolating’ on her return to the country. We were promised a dry day and we got one so that wasContinue reading “Off to see the sea”

A change of plan

Today’s guest picture is another from Venetia’s visit to the Taunton Flower show.  They really know how to enjoy a good time there. Unfortunately, Sandy’s new bike did not arrive on schedule so with nothing better to do, I set out on a solo ride, hoping that the good weather that had greeted the dayContinue reading “A change of plan”

What did I see?

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  He was driving past the Silk Mill in Derby and thought that it might be the sort of picture that I would enjoy.  On reflection, I think that he was right. We were promised a cooler, cloudier day today but when we got up, it was asContinue reading “What did I see?”

Monument, mist and memorial

Today’s guest picture involves an elaborate play on words.  Whereas a recent guest picture showed a links in Spain where Dropscone played golf and photographed, today’s guest picture shows a lynx in Spain which Venetia saw and photographed. We had another dry and sunny day today, the third without rain in a row.  We areContinue reading “Monument, mist and memorial”

An outing

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother who has recently visited Whitby and took this excellent picture of the town. We were promised a nice day today and although it had rained again over night, it wasn’t a bad morning even though it was cloudy and rather chilly again.  I was in no rush toContinue reading “An outing”

Get up and gone

Today’s guest picture comes from Tony & Co’s visit to Cephalonia.   They had some high spots in their holiday and this is one of them. My get up and go had no option but to return today as the first business of the day was to get up and go to Carlisle.   I was actingContinue reading “Get up and gone”

The return of summer

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by my Newcastle correspondent and shows her daughter Hannah with a square blue tit nest from their square blue tit nest box.  Earlier in the year some square blue tits had nested in it. It was a warm and pleasant day with light winds and no threat ofContinue reading “The return of summer”

Hawkish behaviour

Today’s picture shows the rather brilliant moon that greeted me when I looked out of the window as I got up. It was a lovely day with little or no wind but sadly with the temperature dangling in that dangerous area around 2° which makes it seem possible to go out but also all tooContinue reading “Hawkish behaviour”
