Cool walking

Today’s guest picture shows a real trouper from Manitoba.  Lucie sent the picture to me and tells me that on the day that she took it,  Manitoba was at -8c, and the little pansy was still going strong despite having been covered in four inches of snow and suffering several below freezing days We had anotherContinue reading “Cool walking”

Dry run

Today’s guest picture is another from my brother’s Spanish jaunt and shows the very impressive public library in Gijon.  They obviously take libraries seriously there. We had another rainy day today but by way of a change after yesterday’s drizzle, today we had several sharp showers with breaks in between, and even an occasional rayContinue reading “Dry run”

Up and down

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone.  He sent it to me to show that his daughter Susan is not just a fine recorder player but a good cook too. This is her beef Wellington. We had another warm and dry December day here but the 35 mph wind in the morning was a forcible reminderContinue reading “Up and down”

The calm before the storm

Today’s guest picture is another from my sister Mary’s sunny visit to Bath. We got up to another grey and miserable morning here although once again it was unseasonably mild. Mrs Tootlepedal is partially recovered but by no means back to full working order.   She is very touched by the good wishes expressed by readersContinue reading “The calm before the storm”

Giving nature a helping hand

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter who was walking in the Devon hills when she came upon these two nice young men who were wandering the hills looking for the internet – literally.  She thought that I should put a picture on the internet of people looking for the internet.  They work for aContinue reading “Giving nature a helping hand”

Cold comfort

Today’s guest picture was taken by Thomas, one of our new members, and shows the Camera Club  group posing for a picture at the meeting on Monday. The forecast was quite correct and we got a dry day today which was welcome but our rapture was modified by a brisk and chilly east wind which kept theContinue reading “Cold comfort”

Hitting the target

Today’s guest picture came from our daughter who is at the Berlin Film Festival.  She saw these birds and wondered what they are.  They look a bit like crows to me. My day started slowly and continued at that pace but it was not dull or empty.  The sun was out but the east windContinue reading “Hitting the target”

A song cycle

Today’s guest picture shows the result of time hanging heavily on someone’s hands near Eskdalemuir.  It was sent to me by Sandie, my northern correspondent who wonders if it is a Christmas decoration. Our weather here today was very tame after the gales and floods that have lashed the east coasts of Britain recently andContinue reading “A song cycle”
