Dashing blades

Today’s guest picture is a second from Bruce’s walk yesterday. As well as donkeys, he saw the disused railway viaduct that links Scotland and England. The north wind persisted and we had another day of cool, dry weather, Mrs Tootlepedal was not discouraged and was out shifting concrete slabs soon after breakfast. She has movedContinue reading “Dashing blades”

A bit of a buzz

Today’s guest picture comes from one of my brother’s walks in his local area. The farmer has had to work round and old water tower to get his field planted. There was a lot of noise in the garden this morning although as far as the weather went it was sunny and peaceful day. TheseContinue reading “A bit of a buzz”

Unreliable evidence

Today’s guest picture is a lupin in the wild taken by our son Tony on one of his walks…. …and as a change from my usual practice, I have put another guest picture in the post today to show Tony’s lupin in context. I had hoped to go on a longer and slower bike rideContinue reading “Unreliable evidence”

Under the rainbow

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Alistair and shows the indomitable Matilda scootering to infinity and back. It is a rather hasty post tonight as it is late as I write this after a full day. The weather gods relented and let me get out for a dry cycle ride today.  Perhaps they wereContinue reading “Under the rainbow”

The weather gods’ little joke

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by Marianne, our son Tony’s partner.  It shows Tony getting some sausage making tips at the ‘Bowhouse Food Weekend’ in St Monans yesterday.  Marianne tells me that they intend to eat the sausages that he made.  They are very brave. After two days of miserable rain and wind,Continue reading “The weather gods’ little joke”

Where have all the flowers gone?

I do have a guest picture today as my sister Mary sent me this shot of a herd of art loving geese rushing to see Christo’s work in Hyde Park. While we were having our last spell of good weather a few weeks ago in late spring after a miserable few months, nobody dared toContinue reading “Where have all the flowers gone?”

All clear

Today’s guest picture shows an art installation by Christo in Hyde Park in London.  My sister Mary saw it and tells me that it is made up of 7,506 barrels.  I can see that it is really big but whether it is good art, I cannot tell. Our new spell of fine weather continued todayContinue reading “All clear”

Hard work

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by Mary Jo from Manitoba.  It was sent to her by a friend and was taken by her friend’s nephew, James Greig .  James farms near Melita, MB and is the third generation to work that land.  He has a good eye for a photo and those interestedContinue reading “Hard work”

In a jam

Our daughter sent me today’s guest picture just to show that there are good looking bees in London too. The wind moved round to the east today and brought a little touch of coolness with it so although the day was agreeably sunny again, it was much more pleasant to be out and about. AllContinue reading “In a jam”

Up, up and away…and then back again

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who visited Kew Gardens yesterday with my sister Susan.  They went to the water lily house. I had had a look at the weather forecast last night and as a result I had thought that an early start would be best for cycling.  These sort of plansContinue reading “Up, up and away…and then back again”
