A shower or two

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary’s permitted walk yesterday.  It was raining, but she didn’t care as it kept other walkers away, and the fresh green colours it brought made her happy. The gloomy weather from the second half of yesterday’s walk carried over into this morning and it was cold and greyContinue reading “A shower or two”

Date with destiny

Today’s guest picture is another from Venetia’s recent walk.  She met a nesting swan and was very careful to keep her social distance. Our spell of dry weather continued today and it has reached the stage that talk of drought and water shortage is appearing in the national press.   Certainly it has been dry enoughContinue reading “Date with destiny”

This way and that

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  He wants us to know that the sun is still shining in East Wemyss. Our spell of chilly mornings and warm afternoons continued, and as the sun was out all day in a cloudless blue sky, it was no hardship to get dressed a little earlier thanContinue reading “This way and that”

Pushed back

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  His dogs take spring seriously in East Wemyss. Finally the warm weather arrived in Langholm and when we got up we wondered if the the warmth would bring the tulips out. It did. And in the end, the race to be first tulip out was a deadContinue reading “Pushed back”

Two short planks

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who took it on one of his walks.  A local farmer has fenced off a section of a field for the convenience of walkers passing across his land, and fortunately it is just wide enough to allow for social distancing as required these days. Although it wasn’tContinue reading “Two short planks”

An unusual occurrence in the scone department

Today’s guest picture is another from Venetia’s visit to The Newt.  They have made good use of an old tree trunk there, though I don’t think that anyone has cycled far on the bike in the picture. Owing to being a bit dozy when I wrote last night’s post, I didn’t notice that my cameraContinue reading “An unusual occurrence in the scone department”

Mrs Tootlepedal walks the walk

Today’s guest picture comes from Langholm exile in Canada, Joyce. She was greeted by this scene on New Year’s Eve. There will be shovelling. The new year here came in with clouds but no rain and no frost, so all was well set for the ‘Whisky Run’, a long standing Ne’erday event in Langholm, organisedContinue reading “Mrs Tootlepedal walks the walk”

Near the bottom

Today’s guest picture comes from Gunta, a correspondent and fellow blogger who lives in SW Oregon.  Knowing that I like bridges, she has sent me this fine example, one of the most notable bridges in the Pacific Northwest.  It crosses the Rogue River near its mouth. We are only a day or two away fromContinue reading “Near the bottom”

Wrong way round

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  He just wants us to know that there are starlings in East Wemyss too. The forecast was for a reasonable morning with some rain at lunchtime and rising wind during the day.  I should therefore have gone out cycling as soon as possible and worried about otherContinue reading “Wrong way round”

New month, new weather

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  He encountered a much needed moment of reflection in these turbulent times while on a visit to Keddlestone Hall. After our spell of frosty mornings and dry cool days, the temperature rose to greet the first day of November but unfortunately brought a lot of drizzle andContinue reading “New month, new weather”
