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”

Ungarden birds

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  He is quite unhappy that his work as a painter and decorator has been unceremoniously stopped by government order but no provision for helping the self employed to pay their bills has yet been put in hand by the authorities who are happy to pay the wageContinue reading “Ungarden birds”

Spending a lot of time doing very little

Today’s guest picture is another from Venetia’s recent musical outing.  As well as singing with sackbuts, she saw an angel playing a trumpet. We are strictly rationed to only one fine day at a time at the moment, so it was no surprise to wake to a very gloomy morning with additional drizzle today afterContinue reading “Spending a lot of time doing very little”

Keeping busy

Today’s guest picture is another from Alison and Mike Tinker’s New Zealand visit.  As well as bridges, they have flowers over there too. I try to keep off politics in this blog, but I cannot hide the fact that the English results of our general election were a disappointment to me and will lead usContinue reading “Keeping busy”

More going round in circles

Today’s guest picture comes from my friend and former colleague, Marjorie.  She came upon these stunning fungi on a walk a few days ago. It was a dry but grey morning and the forecast was not too bad for the rest of the day so my mind turned to cycling. Before I set off, IContinue reading “More going round in circles”

Cool walking

Today’s guest picture shows a real trouper from Manitoba.  Lucie sent the picture to me and tells me that on the day that she took it,  Manitoba was at -8c, and the little pansy was still going strong despite having been covered in four inches of snow and suffering several below freezing days We had anotherContinue reading “Cool walking”

Three things

I was looking through my files when I found today’s guest picture.  It shows a Liverpool gull hoping to get Bruce to open his hotel window and give it a snack.  It was taken before Bruce went off to Helsinki.  He gets about a lot. It was sunny and windy here today but as thereContinue reading “Three things”

Show time

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew, who is back from Spain.  He was quite surprised to find the moon in his local cathedral.  It had had a very beneficial effect on numbers attending evensong. He tells me that ‘The Museum of the Moon’ is touring the provinces, and will be with him forContinue reading “Show time”

Having a berry good time

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend and horticultural adviser Liz.  She went for a paddle on the Union Canal, and knowing that I like bridges, she sent me this. After two sunny day, we reverted to a grey and drizzly day again today.  It was an ideal morning for staying indoors so I didContinue reading “Having a berry good time”

To the hills, to the hills!

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who has been visiting the Lake District where she enjoyed one of Ruskin’s favourites, the view of Derwentwater from Friar’s Crag. After our spell of cool changeable weather, we got back to a hot summer day today and I hardly like to say this, but it wasContinue reading “To the hills, to the hills!”
