Through the rude wind’s wild lament….

I have run out of new guest pictures so I am returning to my Somerset correspondent Ventetia’s trip to America.  She was driven along some beautiful  but slightly scary roads. While we didn’t go quite as far as the guest picture, we were visited by some very unwelcome snow here and the temperature only justContinue reading “Through the rude wind’s wild lament….”

The return of winter

We had such a grey day here that I badly needed something bright for the post so today’s guest offering is another of Tommy cycling in the South African sunshine.  Lucky chap. The only colour in the garden today was provided by a few stubborn daffodils who defied the cold and the wind. It wasContinue reading “The return of winter”

Progress

Today’s guest picture is an impressive sea cave from Dropscone’s Irish holiday. Our thaw continued and there was no snow to show on the lawns when we woke up.  It was still fairly chilly and grey with occasional rain so we are not breaking out the spring champagne yet. It took the siskins a bitContinue reading “Progress”

Rain stopped play: rain stopped, play started

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter Annie’s recent working trip to Berlin where she spotted a familiar landmark. Aided by temperatures just above freezing and some overnight rain, the snow continues its retreat from the garden. I had to go to the dentist after breakfast but it was only for a check up andContinue reading “Rain stopped play: rain stopped, play started”

A gentle retreat

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent Venetia’s trip to Yellowstone. Although when we woke up, there was still a lot of snow about in the garden today… …with a bit of luck there will be a lot more green about when we wake up tomorrow as the temperature hit 7°C by the afternoonContinue reading “A gentle retreat”

Mirror, mirror on the road

Today’s guest picture is a beautiful shot of the little lake in Regents Park.  My sister Mary took it on her way to play tennis at the weekend and remarked that it looked very spring-like in spite of being partially frozen. We had another dry, chilly day here without much sun to cheer us upContinue reading “Mirror, mirror on the road”

A grand old Duke of York day

To make a change from endless pictures of moss, my guest picture of the day is a moose The picture came from Venetia, who saw the moose in Grand Teton National Park. The wind is in the east at the moment, which often means sunnier days for us and this was the case today. ItContinue reading “A grand old Duke of York day”

A bit more out and about

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone who is on holiday.  He and his family visited Mizzen Head.  It is not on my list of places to visit for obvious reasons. For the first time for what seems like ages, we had quite a warm day today with the thermometer gently pushing at 10°C and itContinue reading “A bit more out and about”

Two mysteries solved

Today’s guest picture comes from former Archive Group member Ken who has gone back to the east coast where he is celebrating the twentieth birthday of the ‘Angel of the North’. It didn’t snow today.  This was quite unexpected but to make up for it, a shrewd and biting wind made going outside a bitContinue reading “Two mysteries solved”

A good day for being inside

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who went to Margate to visit the Turner Gallery, which can be seen in the background of her  shot. I had the job of being the stand in feeder filler at the Moorland bird hide today and it was dry but chilly when I drove up toContinue reading “A good day for being inside”
