Pussy cat, pussy cat where have you been?

Today’s guest picture comes from my camera club friend Simon,  He too was in the hills yesterday, but in bigger hills than the ones that I visited.   He was skiing in France, the lucky chap. We had another beautiful morning here today and Mrs Tootlepedal had to go to a meeting so she couldn’t makeContinue reading “Pussy cat, pussy cat where have you been?”

Two walks, three rides and a puzzle

Today’s guest picture is a lovely study of a heron in the pond at Myatt’s Fields in London.  It was taken by our daughter Annie. We had another fine and sunny day, both here and when I got to Edinburgh.  It was a bit too chilly for cycling in the morning so I went forContinue reading “Two walks, three rides and a puzzle”

A walk in the park

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She saw a proud parent in Golders Hill Park.  It seems very early in the year to me to be seeing ducklings (or perhaps goslings, I am not sure). The new railway timetables for travel to Edinburgh from Lockerbie have affected us considerably.  Because we now haveContinue reading “A walk in the park”

What fun!

Today’s guest picture is another from Gunta, who sent me this charming photo of snowy plovers resting in horse hoofprints on a beach. We had a day with plenty of birds about and some dry and occasionally sunny weather… …which came with the first sign of snow of the year when I looked out ofContinue reading “What fun!”

Thrashed again

Today’s guest picture comes from Venetia, who is on a choir visit to the Netherlands.  In between singing , they were taken to see a parachute drop, part of the 75th anniversary Operation Market Garden commemorations in this area of The Netherlands. Our dry weather continued  today but it was rather misty when Mrs TootlepedalContinue reading “Thrashed again”

There was a ray of sunshine

Today’s guest picture comes from Sharon’s trip to Orkney.  Her shot shows the famous Skara Brae site. It is a brief post with few photographs today as the morning was perfectly miserable with nothing but a few soggy dahlias to look at from the shelter of the front door… …and buckets of that thin but penetratingContinue reading “There was a ray of sunshine”

Travelling hopefully and arriving

Today’s guest picture is a further report from Tony’s Highland holiday.  He has been to the Isle of Skye. A lot of my posts recently seem to have been done late at night and in rather a rush, not helped by my computer behaving in a grumpy manner and frequently holding things up.  This oneContinue reading “Travelling hopefully and arriving”

A splendid day out

After my brother Andrew’s artistic nut weevil yesterday, today’s guest picture from Venetia’s African adventure shows the real thing, dung beetles on elephant droppings.  You can hardly get more down to earth than that. We had a busy day.  We just had time for a cup of coffee and a quick wave at the birdsContinue reading “A splendid day out”

East is best

Today’s guest picture is another from Ada’s trip to Tenerife.  She saw lots of this attractive tree heather while she was there. It was another day when we couldn’t see much here as once again it was very grey and drizzly.  It has been reasonably warm though and there are flowers just waiting for aContinue reading “East is best”

Into the woods again

Today’s just picture comes from Mrs Tootlepedal’s brother, Mike.  He planted some daffodils to brighten the road verge opposite his house and is pleased that his work has born fruit.  Being 300 miles south of Langholm, his daffodils are already out. Mrs Tootlepedal went off to Carlisle after an early breakfast to help sort outContinue reading “Into the woods again”
