Up and down and round and round

Today’s guest picture comes from a walk in Warwickshire which my brother Andrew took last week. I have been trying to work out what is going on at the end of the field but have failed. After yesterday’s gloomy weather, we woke to brilliant sunshine today. For once, I didn’t waste a lot of timeContinue reading “Up and down and round and round”

Upside

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony. I used an old picture of his yesterday and but this lovely scene from the Costa del East Wemyss, where the sun always shines, was taken today. In a break with tradition, I looked out of my upstairs window at the birds at breakfast time. TheContinue reading “Upside”

Over the hill (but not far away)

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who recently walked along the Erewash canal on a sunny day. We had a dry, cool and quite breezy day here today (although it started raining again in the evening) and this encouraged us to get out into the garden not long after breakfast. I set aboutContinue reading “Over the hill (but not far away)”

If at first…..

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Sharon who was walking by the river at Canonbie. Billy Bell, who is a fisherman, tells me this is Cauldron Pool. We had a second day running when the weather forecast warned of thunderstorms. After getting drenched yesterday, we did not take this lightly. All the same, thingsContinue reading “If at first…..”

Two short walks

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce who met an ugly customer when he was walking in the woods today. We were blessed with a genuine summer day here, warm from start to finish, and with plenty of sunshine to be going on with. I took advantage of the good weather to put aContinue reading “Two short walks”

A higher purpose

Today’s guest picture comes from a walk my sister Mary took through the rose garden in Regents Park last week. Our unsettled weather continued here today with the morning peppered with short showers, some of them quite sharp with a little hail thrown in. This curtailed our street coffee meeting and kept gardening to aContinue reading “A higher purpose”

Walk on

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  He was walking his dogs when he came upon this artful construction on the beach. Our spell of sunny weather continued today, together with a gusty and cool wind from the east.  It got a lot warmer in the afternoon though. The day started with the crosswordContinue reading “Walk on”

Service not included

Guess whose birthday it was today.  Guest picture courtesy of her mother Clare. Finding things to do in the lockdown is tricky.  Mrs Tootlepedal decided to put a stone edge on one of her garden paths today. I had a couple of important things on my to do list today, take the Zoe to CarlisleContinue reading “Service not included”

Up and about

Today’s guest picture is another from Dropscone’s Northumbrian holiday.  It shows his daughter and granddaughter on their way to visit the castle on Holy island. It was sunny here, the wind had dropped, the cattle had been taken off Meikleholm Hill, and it was a perfect day for a walk up a hill.  So IContinue reading “Up and about”

Missed opportunity

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce who was out walking his dogs this morning. Bruce took his photograph at half past eleven this morning when, as you can see, it was misty on the Castleholm. I had looked out of the window after breakfast and only seen sunshine and frost but when IContinue reading “Missed opportunity”
