Sandy goes over the top

Today’s guest picture, which was sent to me by my sister Mary, is from her recent visit to Kew Gardens. The thermometer said that it was rather cool at breakfast time but the air outside was paying no attention to the thermometer and it seemed to be pleasantly warm again as I set off forContinue reading “Sandy goes over the top”

Where did summer go?

Today’s guests picture, sent by my sister Susan, shows a colourful bench in London which celebrates Jeeves and Wooster from the works of P G Wodehouse.  I don’t know what it would be like to sit on. The forecast offered us a greater than ninety percent chance of rain all day and it was prettyContinue reading “Where did summer go?”

To the point

Today’s guest picture, sent to me by my sister Mary, shows my daughter Annie in the act of taking yesterday’s guest picture at Kew gardens.  Self referential or what? The day started with Mrs Tootlepedal getting up at crack of dawn to visit the world’s greatest baby in Edinburgh.  Matilda was very pleased to seeContinue reading “To the point”

A pedal and a tootle. Hooray!

Today’s guest picture, taken by my sister Mary on her recent visit to Somerset, shows the fine church at Ilminster. We woke up to a rather grey day morning today but it was dry so we both set off on our bicycles after breakfast.  My target was a gentle twenty miles by way of aContinue reading “A pedal and a tootle. Hooray!”

Just a little bit further

Today’s guest picture, sent to me by her mother, shows Matilda settling down at home after having sampled all the excitements of Langholm Common Riding. We had another lovely sunny day today and with a drop in the temperature from roasting to merely hot, it was just about perfect.   We were up quite early andContinue reading “Just a little bit further”

A little adventure

Today’s guest picture shows Barrington Court in Somerset, recently visited by my sister Mary who kindly sent me the photograph. We came to the end of our endlessly sunny weather today and to my relief at least, it was quite a bit cooler outside.  It was still a pleasant day when we got up andContinue reading “A little adventure”

A step too far

Today’s guest pictures comes from Bruce who lives near the fire station.  He is certainly not going in theeere. I started off on the morning run with Dropscone but had to stop almost before we had started because of an ominous grating sound coming from my back wheel.  When a preliminary investigation failed to locateContinue reading “A step too far”

A bit of a ruin

Today’s guest picture, sent to Mrs Tootlepedal by an ex work colleague Anne, shows a hummingbird hawkmoth in her garden. It is not a fantastic picture and you can just make out the moth visiting a flower but it was fantastic for Anne to see such a rare moth. I was in a cycling moodContinue reading “A bit of a ruin”

Seated again

Today’s guest picture is a shot of camel racing.  My daughter Annie sent it, having come across it, as one does, at a country fair in a south London park.  The things that you see in a big city! Like yesterday, I spent quite a lot of time sitting down again today but unlike yesterday,Continue reading “Seated again”

No point

Today’s guest picture is a view of a bridge over the Elbe in Dresden taken by my brother on his trip there earlier this month. We were promised a fine start but with dire warnings of heavy rain to follow so Dropscone and I were pleased to get a sunny spell for our morning run. Continue reading “No point”
