Breaking the barrier

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony who spotted the navy sailing up the Forth yesterday. Another frost free night here was followed by a dry morning with a reasonable, but not jacket shedding temperature. As we had things to do in the afternoon, I went off for a fairly early cycle ride. BecauseContinue reading “Breaking the barrier”

Moss mayhem

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan. She came across this very elegant bench on a visit to Kenwood House in London. After what is supposed to be the last of a long series of cold nights, we got another cold morning with added rain. However, as I write this in the evening, theContinue reading “Moss mayhem”

An adventure

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He found a really lovely patch of bluebells on his walk today. We had anther chilly night here which only just stayed above freezing, and it stayed pretty cold in the morning. The forecast suggested changeable weather all day but offered a dry spell after breakfast forContinue reading “An adventure”

A last dry day

Today’s guest picture comes from one of our neighbour Liz’s morning walks with her dog.  They visited a lovely little waterfall on the Becks Burn.  As this involves quite a bit of scrambling, she deserves great credit for getting the shot. I started the active part of my day by cycling round to the shopContinue reading “A last dry day”

A walk and some chips

Today’s guest picture shows a fine display of wisteria spotted by my sister Susan on her way to catch a bus. We had a frosty morning here, followed by a fine but chilly day with a brisk  and biting north wind.  If you were out of the wind, everything in the garden was lovely andContinue reading “A walk and some chips”

A garden visit

Today’s guest picture shows one of our son Tony’s dogs enjoying the sunshine on the East Wemyss Riviera.  It’s lip-smackingly good there. Our spell of dry and sunny weather started its drift to normality today as the temperature dropped a degree or two and the sun became rather shy as the day went on, butContinue reading “A garden visit”
