Some disapointments

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  His walking group took him on an eight mile  hilly and windy walk near Ashbourne.  As an additional hazard, he had to cross this very narrow bridge. After a night when my sleep was often interrupted by the theatrical sighing and moaning of the wind round theContinue reading “Some disapointments”

Biting the bullet

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony’s recent holiday.  As well as waterfalls and wonderful views, he and Marianne also saw this. We had the coldest night of the year so far and woke to a frosty scene. It was chilly but the birds were active.  A dunnock looked in soon after breakfast.Continue reading “Biting the bullet”

Bad timing

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone’s holiday in Forres.  He and his daughter Susan went down to see the sea at the mouth of Findhorn Bay.  There was a lot of sand about The weather today was as confused as the forecasts.  It couldn’t really make up its mind whether it was raining or notContinue reading “Bad timing”

In the garden

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan who was taking some refreshment in Russell Square when she noticed that she was being watched. We had a day of almost uninterrupted sunshine and light winds, ideal for pottering about the garden so this is what I did.  I thought of going for a bike rideContinue reading “In the garden”

Just a song at twilight

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent Venetia, who like Dr Foster went to Gloucester but, unlike him,  found that the weather was fine.  She enjoyed a singing day in this lovely building. Our fine weather continued and with the breeze still coming from the south, we had an even warmer day than yesterday. Continue reading “Just a song at twilight”

Progress

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who was bowled over by this burst of colour as he walked through the Nottingham Arboretum today. I had a good day today.  The weather was kind when I needed it to be kind and it only rained when I was safely back indoors watching rugby.  EvenContinue reading “Progress”

A certain lack of sparkle

Today’s guest picture comes from one of Dropscone’s walks with his new camera.  He saw this vision of sunshine through a hole in the wall about ten days ago. There was no vision of sunshine here today as yet another morning of wind and drizzle kept our spirits low. Luckily we had the writing, stampingContinue reading “A certain lack of sparkle”

Putting my foot down

Today’s guest picture shows Lincoln Cathedral, seen from the Castle walls.  It was taken by my sister Mary on a recent visit. We woke to heavy rain and strong winds but as Mrs Tootlepedal and my sister Susan went off to church and I spent the time inside sorting out the framing of my picturesContinue reading “Putting my foot down”

Triumph for Mrs Tootlepedal & co

Today’s guest picture shows the world’s greatest small person in reflective mood at a party. After breakfast, I waved good bye to Mrs Tootlepedal as she set off to Dumfries with three colleagues from the Ewes WRI group to take part in a competition for 15 minutes of prose and poetry readings on the themeContinue reading “Triumph for Mrs Tootlepedal & co”

Goodbye sunshine

Today’s guest picture shows Dunstanburgh Castle on the north-east coast of England.  Gavin walked past it in the sunshine while on the Craster coastal walk yesterday. The authorities have decided that a single day of crisp sunshine was all that we deserved and we were back to the warm, wet and grey weather again today. Continue reading “Goodbye sunshine”
