Two contrasting walks

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan who visited the famous gardens at Kew and was very impressed by this statue. It leaves Mr Grumpy looking like a little ray of sunshine. We had a close run thing here with the temperature dropping to a single degree above freezing in the early morning. FortunatelyContinue reading “Two contrasting walks”

Two rays of sunshine

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony taken in sunny East Wemyss. It was a rather grey morning here with occasional drizzle so it was very lucky that a visit brightened it up a lot. Our son Tony stopped taking pictures in East Wemyss for long enough to come down to Langholm withContinue reading “Two rays of sunshine”

A late tour

Today’s guest picture comes from Paul’s Lake District trip. He found the locals were looking at the visitors just as hard as the visitors were looking at the scenery. We had a rather curious day here. It was dry and occasionally sunny but there was brisk north wind blowing and it was extremely chilly forContinue reading “A late tour”

Continuous walking

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in Fife. He came across this splendid sea buckthorn on a recent walk. We had another cool day here, with only one rain shower but with a brisk north wind blowing. I had a stroll round the garden before coffee. The dark dahlia is putting out flowersContinue reading “Continuous walking”

A wet walk

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan. She is very pleased to see that her neighbourhood is taking covid precautions seriously. The very welcome arrival of our daughter Annie with her daughter Evie has not surprisingly caused a ripple to run across the smooth surface of our lockdown lives. As a result, blog postsContinue reading “A wet walk”

Blowing in the wind

Today’s scenic guest picture comes from a walk near Nottingham that my brother Andrew undertook today in some very brisk winds. There was some heavy rain here overnight, and it was wet and windy when we got up. Generally speaking, the day didn’t get any better as it went on. It was quite warm thoughContinue reading “Blowing in the wind”

Plan B

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone.  The golf course is closed at the moment so he is going for walks and he passed one of my favourite trees  a day or two ago.  He thinks that it is a bit like us, just hanging on by the skin of its teeth. It was colder todayContinue reading “Plan B”

Going nowhere

Today’s guest picture comes from East Wemyss where our son Tony tells us that his dogs found the sea a bit too rough for their liking. It was another windy here again, and once again it was very grey too.  The threatened frost didn’t arrive but it wasn’t far above zero at breakfast time. IContinue reading “Going nowhere”

Slow progress

Today’s guest picture is another from Dropscone’s visit to Amsterdam. It was another wet and windy morning here, so I was happy to continue in my peaceful resting mode while Mrs Tootlepedal went off to her monthly coffee morning with ex work colleagues. I wasn’t left on my own though as Dropscone arrived with someContinue reading “Slow progress”

Hiding

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  It is a horrible evening here so I was pleased to find his cheerful picture of life on the river at Chester last week. We were promised a visit from Storm Brendan later in the day so it was good to find a quiet, dry morning whenContinue reading “Hiding”
