Mrs Tootlepedal goes round in a circle

Today’s guest picture comes from Sue Bourne, who I met on my walk yesterday. She kindly sent me this striking picture of cladonia lichen which she had seen at Caulside in Canonbie. It was slightly cooler in the morning today when we got up but it was still quite humid. I felt pretty tired andContinue reading “Mrs Tootlepedal goes round in a circle”

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…..”

Wired up

Today’s guest picture comes from my camera club friend Simon who noticed these interesting additions to a pylon when he was out and about near Canonbie. They are going to renew the cables. We had another beautiful day here today. As this was the first day of summer, there is a slight worry that summerContinue reading “Wired up”

Not a scone to be seen

Today’s guest picture comes from Bruce’s recent trip to the central belt of Scotland.  He found a bit of a wall there that wasn’t built by Hadrian. There was torrential rain to the south of us today, leading to serious flooding in England but it was warm and dry here when I got up.  ThereContinue reading “Not a scone to be seen”

Collapse of plan (and planner)

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset corespondent Venetia.  She went to Castle Ashby in Northamptonshire to play music and had some time to look at a fine spiral staircase at the orangery while she was there. We had what looks as though it might be the last day of our warm and sunny spellContinue reading “Collapse of plan (and planner)”

A start

Today’s guest picture comes from my ex-work colleague Ada.  She is in Tours and in spite of seeing a goat and a pink elephant in the street, she assures me that she hardly touched a drop. The day started with some promise as far as the weather went.  There was sunshine as we cycled toContinue reading “A start”

Sunny within and without

Today’s guest picture comes from Mary Jo of Manitoba.  She was at a grand opening of a feed mill at a Hutterite colony in Alberta last week when a friend pointed out this American robin’s well stocked nest. After yesterday’s endless rain, we had endless sunshine today.  It was very welcome.  Of course the weather godsContinue reading “Sunny within and without”

A dull day in every way

Today’s guest picture comes from Bruce.  Having left Scotland by sailing under three bridges across the Forth, he has sent me this picture of sailing under another bridge and not just any old bridge but The Bridge.  Yes, that one, the Øresund Bridge, familiar to all lovers of Scandinavian Noir TV. Bruce may have had sunny weatherContinue reading “A dull day in every way”

The cutting edge

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan who saw this all electric hire car getting a charge in a street the other day. It was warmer today but no less grey in the morning and we were pleased to get to church and back before it started to rain.  As I may have mentioned,Continue reading “The cutting edge”

Sight and sound

Today’s guest picture comes from my Newcastle correspondent, Fiona.  She travelled as far as Durham, took a trip on the river and looked up at the cathedral as she drew near. It was a dull, often rainy and always windy day today so I wasn’t unhappy to spend most of the morning going off withContinue reading “Sight and sound”
