Sandy takes the cake

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Sandy. After some air fryer conversation over coffee today, he went home and cooked a cake in his. With excellent results. He says that it tastes as good as it looks. After yesterday’s good weather, it was back to normal service with a grey and windy day hereContinue reading “Sandy takes the cake”

Much better than expected

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in East Wemyss. Like us they had sunshine and clouds there today. Edinburgh seems to be under the cloud. Once again there had been weather warnings for strong winds and heavy rain, and once again we woke to rain, but it was not very heavy and thereContinue reading “Much better than expected”

A better day

Today’s guest picture is another swan. This one was seen today by our son Alistair in his local park. Our day here started off grey, but as it was dry and not too windy, we were a lot happier than yesterday and went for two outings. Before the first outing, I checked on the birdsContinue reading “A better day”

Another wet day

For the guest picture on a very dull day, I have turned once again to our son Tony and a sunny day in East Wemyss to cheer us up. This was taken a day or two ago. Sadly, Tony himself is not so cheerful. He and Marianne were due to come here tomorrow to seeContinue reading “Another wet day”

Sight reading

Today’s guest picture was taken near Dunbar yesterday by our friend Gavin. He had gone to the East coast for his walk and had got some sunny but windy weather. The bridge crosses the river Tyne, but is only usable when the tide is out, as otherwise it is marooned in the middle of theContinue reading “Sight reading”

A wet walk

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter Annie, and shows dawn over Stockwell in South London today. Annie tells me that the Stockwell shepherds were cowering at this unexpected sight. It was freezing when we got up today after a clear night, but a change in the weather meant that the thermometer rose steadily fromContinue reading “A wet walk”

Power cut

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. It was taken in East Wemyss yesterday. It was a miserable, chilly, grey and drizzly day here, until it brightened up too late to be useful at all. The seed in the bird feeder hardly went down at all, and the nearest I got to taking aContinue reading “Power cut”

The last of the light

Today’s guest picture is another of the fine crop of fungus to be found in my Lake Michigan correspondent, Laura’s back yard. We had more rain overnight, but it was not serious rain and it petered out by coffee time, dampening Margaret on her way in, but letting her get home dry. After coffee, MrsContinue reading “The last of the light”

Showers

Today’s guest picture from sunny East Wemyss, much needed on another generally gloomy day here, shows one of Tony’s dogs playing ‘King of the Castle’. We woke to heavy showers, and were quite pleased when a long enough gap in the weather appeared not only to let us cycle to church to sing in theContinue reading “Showers”

A smaller tour

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She spotted this little burst of autumn colour beside the pond in Regent’s Park a day or two ago. Our weather was much improved here, and the birds didn’t take long to come to the feeder when I filled it after breakfast. I was pleased to seeContinue reading “A smaller tour”
