A drop of rain

Today’s guest picture comes from Sandy. His blue tit family have fledged and left the nest box. This was the last one to go. Today saw the beginning of a change in our weather. If the forecasts are to be believed, we are going to lose about 10°C in temperature over the next day orContinue reading “A drop of rain”

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”

A piece of cake

Today”s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  He saw deer on one of his walks with his dogs.  The deer saw him but didn’t run away at once. To say that today was another uneventful day would be rather overstating the excitement.  The recent frost has put a damper on the pleasure of walkingContinue reading “A piece of cake”

Pushing the envelope

Today’s guest picture is a puzzle.  Is it the south of France? Is is a tropical Isle? No, it is sunny Wemyss turning up trumps yet again for the lens of our son Tony. We had a touch of frost in the very early morning but by the time that I got up the skyContinue reading “Pushing the envelope”

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”

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”

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”

A change of scene

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by my sister Mary.  She was joined by a jackdaw for breakfast at Kenwood House, but it came too late as she had cleared her plate. The forecast was for rain in the afternoon so I might, if I had been energetic and well organised, gone out forContinue reading “A change of scene”

I felt no pain

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  On a recent tour, he stopped at Tewkesbury and took a picture of the bridge there. Yesterday’s heavy work on the lawn was an experiment in ‘kill or cure’ and when I woke up this morning, I was very happy to find that the balance had tippedContinue reading “I felt no pain”

Net gain

Today’s guest picture comes from Mary Jo from Manitoba who is not in Manitoba at all at the moment.  She is in London and visited Kew Gardens where she took this picture.  You might think that as it was taken in a famous garden it shows a wonderful plant but in fact it is anContinue reading “Net gain”
