A one handed clap

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. His son arrived and cut down a tree in his garden, leaving Andrew’s lawn well hidden. We had dire warnings of a 90% chance of heavy rain with thunder and lightning throughout the day. So although we were quite pleased to have occasional rain and only oneContinue reading “A one handed clap”

Small but select

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent Venetia who took it while  flashing past Stonehenge on a double decker bus.  There was no time to stop as she was off to London for a march to demand a second referendum.  One of my sisters, my brother and his two sons also attended the marchContinue reading “Small but select”

A familiar pattern

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by my brother Andrew.  He is a great walker and recently walked with his walking group through a wood.  The substantial size of the trees can be gauged by noting the size of the walkers who can just be seen at the bottom of the frame. I hadContinue reading “A familiar pattern”

In training

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce.  He has left the country with his wife and seems to have turned up in Helsinki where they saw the cathedral.  (They will be back.) A brief post today as it is late again as I sit down to write  because I have been to Edinburgh. WeContinue reading “In training”

In a stew

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony.  He met this ‘wee, sleekit, cow’rin, tim’rous beastie‘ in a field while he was out on a walk.  Whether it had a ‘panic in its breastie’ is not recorded. We had any amount of rain overnight, and when I looked at Mary Jo’s scientific rain gauge, it hadContinue reading “In a stew”

A welcome return

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  He noticed a small water wheel which has been installed not far from his house.  It has a helpful explanatory diagram drawn on the side of its hut.  It is providing power for some lights on a bridge. Just how lucky the agricultural show was to getContinue reading “A welcome return”

Bad timing

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone’s holiday in Forres.  He and his daughter Susan went down to see the sea at the mouth of Findhorn Bay.  There was a lot of sand about The weather today was as confused as the forecasts.  It couldn’t really make up its mind whether it was raining or notContinue reading “Bad timing”

Practice makes nearly perfect

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan who spotted this.  She tells me that she had not touched a drop. We had a sunny day from dawn until dusk and the garden was once again filled with butterflies… …but I let them get on in peace today and when I wasn’t having coffee andContinue reading “Practice makes nearly perfect”

Laid back

Today’s guest picture comes from one of my brother Andrew’s recent walks.  He was rather surprised to find a woolly mammoth looking at him over a wall. I had a day of mostly sitting down today although I did get about enough to mow the front lawn and do some deadheading. We started off withContinue reading “Laid back”

A river runs through it

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone and shows one of the greens on the golf course he was visiting last week in Spain.  Tough conditions out there. We had far from Spanish weather here today.  It had rained heavily over night and it was still raining heavily when we got up.  It continued to rainContinue reading “A river runs through it”
