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”

Offleg problems

Today’s guest picture comes from my camera club friend Simon.  He is offsetting the disappointment of the disappearance of all his normal work thanks to the coronavirus by taking healthy walks along the beautiful Esk between some humdrum jobs which he has taken to fill the gap. I took a walk in the garden afterContinue reading “Offleg problems”

Not up to Downton

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary.  She saw this early show of daffodils on her walk to Kenwood House today. We were up and about quite smartly today as our church organist had arranged a choir practice in the morning as he had a day off work.   When we got to the church,Continue reading “Not up to Downton”

Slow progress

Today’s guest picture is another from Dropscone’s visit to Amsterdam. It was another wet and windy morning here, so I was happy to continue in my peaceful resting mode while Mrs Tootlepedal went off to her monthly coffee morning with ex work colleagues. I wasn’t left on my own though as Dropscone arrived with someContinue reading “Slow progress”

A pleasant surprise

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary.  The parakeets in Hyde Park are so tame that this one came to her friend Garth’s hand without even being offered food. In spite of being in a spell of high pressure which usually brings sunny weather, we have been getting a lot of cloud.  This hasContinue reading “A pleasant surprise”

A certain apprehension

Today’s guest picture is another captured by our son Tony’s new camera, showing that it (and he) can take close ups as well as the larger picture. It was bright and chilly when we got up and after breakfast, I went out to look for the lost perch from the feeder.  I found it easilyContinue reading “A certain apprehension”

Social circle

Today’s guest picture is another one from Joe and Annie’s recent Highland holiday and shows what you get if you arrive at the top of a mountain, namely a view of more mountains. Our welcome spell of relatively mild weather continued today but once again, the morning was very grey and there was even aContinue reading “Social circle”

A golden moment

Today’s guest picture comes from a trip which my brother Andrew made to Shipley Park a while ago, when there as still some colour in the trees. We woke to a fine calm and often sunny day but in spite of this, I had a very restful morning.  Indeed, it was so restful that forContinue reading “A golden moment”

A sign of welcome

Today’s guest picture comes from Gavin’s Spanish holiday where he came across this chap.  Hard to know what he is thinking. We had a lovely day here, warm with light winds.  I will say that again: We had a lovely day here, warm with light winds. There was an article in my newspaper this morningContinue reading “A sign of welcome”

One in the eye for me

Today’s guest picture is another from my sister Mary’s visit to the Isabella Plantation at Richmond Park last week. Our welcome spell of dry and often sunny weather continued today, although once again it came with enough added wind to make my morning pedal down to Canonbie and back quite hard work on the returnContinue reading “One in the eye for me”
