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”

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”
