Feeling the chill

Today’s guest picture comes from my Australian correspondent Stephen.  Having read about the Langholm Christmas tree illumination, he sent me this shot to show that Australians can do Christmas too. Talking about Christmas, our resident robin is working hard to get us into a Christmas mood. As you can see, we had another sunny dayContinue reading “Feeling the chill”

A tootle but no pedal

Today’s guest picture is another from Venetia’s canal walk with my sister Mary.  I like a bridge with legs. After a chilly night, we had a chilly morning followed by a chilly afternoon.  Sandy, who dropped in for a coffee told me that his thermometer showed an overnight low of -7°C which is unusually coldContinue reading “A tootle but no pedal”

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”

About and up

Today’s guest picture, in the absence of any alternative, is another welcome to the sunny shore of Wemyss.  Tony certainly has a grand spot for walking his dogs. It was quite frosty here this morning… …and it stayed below zero all day.  There was very little wind though and the sun was shining when weContinue reading “About and up”

Cold comfort

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who was out and about and saw skaters on the temporary ice rink at Somerset House.  It always looks a rather staid way of having fun to me. We had a second sunny day today but the weather gods had another trick up their sleeve and keptContinue reading “Cold comfort”

Fairly cheerful

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony and shows his efforts to teach his dogs to appreciate a fine sunset over the Forth last night. We got a frosty morning without the benefit of any sunshine here and the temperature hardly rose at all for the rest of the day.  Still, as everyone remarked,Continue reading “Fairly cheerful”

No comfort at all

Today’s guest picture is a Paddington Basin sunset captured by my sister Mary.  I don’t usually go for sunsets but this is a cracker. We had another even colder day today, without the benefit of any added sunshine. Thanks to a very slowly dripping but unnoticed tap in the guest bathroom, it was cold enoughContinue reading “No comfort at all”

Crystal clear

Today’s guest picture is another from Mike Griffiths’ visit to Stratford-upon-Avon.  This is Cox’s Yard, once a timber merchant’s place of business and now a high class eatery. We had plenty of sunshine here today but it had to struggle against the chill and on the whole, the chill won. It was sub zero CContinue reading “Crystal clear”

Another day, another walk and another cough

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary, who popped over to Paris for some culture.  She bravely used that external escalator. It was frosty again when we got up and I recorded the fact with the aid of a spirea. My recovery from the cold has been delayed again and so I took advantageContinue reading “Another day, another walk and another cough”

Just can’t stop snapping

Today’s guest picture come all the way from Las Vegas  where Sandy is on holiday.  The architects there seemingly need a little more practice. It was a day of this and that today.  This was beautiful blue skies and sunshine and that was sub zero temperatures in the morning.  The prospect in the garden wasContinue reading “Just can’t stop snapping”
