A useful outing

Today’s guest picture comes from a visit my Somerset correspondent, Venetia, made to Benter Village. She met with some fowl play while she was there. In the way that these things often happen, we got a day of pretty good weather just when I couldn’t make good use of it. My toothache was still badContinue reading “A useful outing”

Finding time for Matilda

Today’s guest picture comes from my flute pupil Luke’s mother Sharon.  She has been on Orkney where she visited the chapel built by Italian POWs on the shell of a Nissen hut. We had a better day today but to make up for the lack of rain, the temperature had dropped a bit and itContinue reading “Finding time for Matilda”

From beggar to prince

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony who was in a good position to admire the big festival wheel in Edinburgh. My feet and joints generally sent me a message this morning to say that they had had enough of cycling and walking for the moment.  As it was a miserable grey day, IContinue reading “From beggar to prince”

Going a bit too far

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent Venetia who went to the Taunton Flower Show.  You can read about her adventures here. Sad to say, her favourite arrangement in the ‘At the Garden Gate’ class was disqualified for using artificial grass. We had quite a lot of rain and wind overnight and it wasContinue reading “Going a bit too far”

Hot stuff

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  There are caves near his house in East Wemyss which have a rich history dating back to the Picts and some archaeologists are currently having a dig around to find out more. It has been getting steadily warmer here, although nothing like the heatwaves in the USAContinue reading “Hot stuff”

Slightly calmer

Today’s guest picture once again shows what our son Tony comes across when he walks his dogs at his new house. It was yet another miserably drizzly and windy morning when we got up but it was still comfortably warm in the garden.  I am afraid that I was one of those  purveyors of fakeContinue reading “Slightly calmer”

Not much action but a lot of pictures

Unusually, I have two guest pictures of the day from our son Tony.  The first shows that he got up at sunrise to walk his dogs… …and the second shows what he saw. His new house gets our seal of approval. Dropscone is away refereeing another golf tournament so there were no treacle scones todayContinue reading “Not much action but a lot of pictures”

Changeable weather

Today’s guest picture comes from Mary Jo in Manitoba, or to be more precise, over Manitoba in her aeroplane from which she could see the effect of having a pivotal irrigation system. A variety of forecasters were offering a variety of forecasts today but they all involved rain at some time or other.  I decidedContinue reading “Changeable weather”

Three wheels on his wagon

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone and shows the roadside repair man fitting a new wheel to Dropscone’s car after he had inadvertently lost the original while driving along. Dropscone arrived for coffee today with a tale of woe.  He had been driving back from a golf event up the borders at the weekend, whenContinue reading “Three wheels on his wagon”

A little tired

Today’s guest picture is of a rather stuck up group of august personages which my brother Andrew found in a church in Hull on a recent visit. I think that the permanently changeable weather is beginning to get to me and I am currently feeling rather short of beans to be full of.  As aContinue reading “A little tired”
