Crossing the Lyne

Today’s guest picture comes from sunny East Wemyss. Our son Tony thought that it was a particularly calm if rather hazy day on the Forth of Forth. We had a calm and sunny day here too today, after some seasonally appropriate early morning autumnal mist. Under the circumstances, a bike ride seemed to be aContinue reading “Crossing the Lyne”

Wrong then right

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan who is having a short break in Chichester with my sister Mary. They couldn’t help noticing the cathedral. The weather here was variable once again. I got up early intending to go cycling before breakfast but it was raining. I fortified myself with porridge and a bananaContinue reading “Wrong then right”

Rain tomorrow

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony, and shows the harvest ripening in East Wemyss. We had another cloudy but dry day here today. The wind was light and the temperature rose to 70°F (21°C) in the mid afternoon. As we think that 70°F is a perfect temperature for being in the garden, weContinue reading “Rain tomorrow”

Light rain

Today’s guest picture comes from my New York correspondent, MaryJane. She was out walking when she saw a cormorant and several weed covered turtles beside a duckweed filled pond. As had been forecast, we had another grey day here. It had a tendency to start to drizzle every time we went into the garden. However,Continue reading “Light rain”

Scones with strawberry jam

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony, and shows that you can see interesting visitors when you look out from the shore at East Wemyss. The nights have warmed up and there was no danger of frost, for which we were grateful, but there was no sign of any sun when we woke up,Continue reading “Scones with strawberry jam”

Deja vu

Today’s guest picture comes from Elaine, the sister in law of our neighbour Liz. She is over on the east coast enjoying some fine weather at Beadnell Bay in Northumberland. We had some fine weather here too today, but sadly it didn’t even last until coffee time. It clouded over abruptly, and we sat inContinue reading “Deja vu”

Running scared

Today’s guest picture is the third and last of the inviting gates and doors that Venetia discovered when she visited that garden at Whatcombe in Somerset. Once again we had a frosty night here (min 25.5 °F ), and once again we had a chilly morning. It was dry though, and the wind was briskContinue reading “Running scared”

Tunnel vision

Today’s guest picture comes from Tom, the Langholm exile in South Africa. He was up today for his morning walk while the moon was still high in the sky. We got up to find that very annoyingly it had been below zero again overnight. We are beginning to question whether it will ever get warmContinue reading “Tunnel vision”

A subdued day

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She found some lovely blossom on a sunny walk in Regents Park. In contrast to that, we had a very subdued day here. It wasn’t frosty overnight but it was still cold and grey when we got up, and it stayed that way all day. There wasContinue reading “A subdued day”

Going out with Mrs Tootlepdal

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in sunny East Wemyss and features a sea bird and some seaweed….and some sea. Disappointingly, we had another sub zero night so that things are still developing very slowly in the garden in spite of sunny days. We had another very sunny day today and by midContinue reading “Going out with Mrs Tootlepdal”
