At least it didn’t snow

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who noticed an unusual spectator when she went to play tennis. After what we hope was the last of a series of sub zero nights, (25°F -4°C), we had a day that was still pretty cold in spite of talk of rising temperatures. It was just warmContinue reading “At least it didn’t snow”

A brown study

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Caroline who came across this sturdy building on a walk beside the sea at Portsmouth. We had another frosty night here, but as it was followed by a fine sunny day with calmer winds, we were reasonable happy. The gang of blackbirds was back, considering a lump ofContinue reading “A brown study”

A crowded day

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who found that his local river, the Derwent, had got a bit too enthusiastic yesterday. The first picture in the post today looks a little out of place, but honestly, it was nearly today when I took it when I went to bed last night. I lookedContinue reading “A crowded day”

Real cycling

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony who celebrated his fiftieth birthday by taking his dogs for a swim. After a night of rain, we woke to slightly higher temperatures here, and it stayed comfortably above freezing all day. There wasn’t a trace of snow and ice in the garden and as the hillsContinue reading “Real cycling”

Skyscaper

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony’s partner, Marianne. It shows the view from outside her place of work the other day. I might be happy about going to work early on a dark morning if I got views like this. We had more heavy rain showers over night, but they didn’t last tooContinue reading “Skyscaper”

Another opportunity taken

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who was able to enjoy a fine sunset out of her back window in London this evening. We had another grey and miserable morning here, with very low cloud and a lot of drizzle. I was very happy to while away my time on a crossword, coffeeContinue reading “Another opportunity taken”

Going loopy

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. Looking through my files I noticed that I had missed this nice double bridge shot combining one of his sons with the Erewash canal. It was taken a month ago. We had another in our series of cool and calm days here, this time with added morningContinue reading “Going loopy”

Round and round today

Today’s guest picture is another from that demi-paradise, East Wemyss. I have used a lot of our son Tony’s pictures as guest pictures of the day but if he keeps sending me pictures like this one which he sent today, I will probably use a lot more. We had another chilly but calm day hereContinue reading “Round and round today”

Somewhere under the rainbow

Today’s guest picture shows that Tony’s yesterday morning’s snow in East Wemyss didn’t last very long. By the afternoon it had all been washed away by rain. We got a much better day here than yesterday and we were duly grateful. Even so, in spite of some sunshine, I didn’t rush out because it wasContinue reading “Somewhere under the rainbow”

An adventure

Today’s guest picture is another from East Wemyss.  Our son Tony was supposed to restart work today but thanks to an administrative mix up, he had leisure to walk the dogs and enjoy this very clear view across the Forth instead. We keep being promised a change in the weather but it was another gloriousContinue reading “An adventure”
