A baker’s dozen

Today’s guest picture comes from Eike from the Bergisches Land, a low mountain range region within the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. He is the son of long time reader Zyriacus. Knowing my fondness for fungi, he has kindly sent me some local examples from his area. The weather this week has been better thanContinue reading “A baker’s dozen”

Two flocks

Today’s guest picture comes from Langholm exile Tom in South Africa. He tells me that this is the South African national flower, the Protea. We had notice of a change in the weather today as the north wind died down to a whisper. By the end of the day, it was coming from the south,Continue reading “Two flocks”

Mrs Tootlepedal is for the birds

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary, It shows busy Kentish Town Stationin London a week or so ago, and demonstrates why Mary is not too alarmed at the prospect of taking public transport. Hardly anyone else is taking it at the moment. Our wind is still coming from the north so when theContinue reading “Mrs Tootlepedal is for the birds”

One step back

Today’s guest picture, forwarded to me by Mike Tinker and taken by his daughter Liz, shows a delightful scene with cormorants at Linlithgow. I was a bit taken aback last night. After feeling that my back was definitely on the mend through the day, I got a bit of shock when I tried to lieContinue reading “One step back”

Rain assisted rest

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter Annie. She got dizzy just looking up at this crane. It rained in the night and it was still raining when we got up. As a result, it was quite easy for me to have a quiet morning in. What was not so satisfactory was that I choseContinue reading “Rain assisted rest”

A bridge too far

Today’s guest picture is another from Tony’s Highland holiday. One of his dogs answered the question posed by a bench. We had another dry day here, cool when the sun was in, but pleasant enough for us to have coffee in the garden with Liz and Margaret, and actually warm when the sun came out.Continue reading “A bridge too far”

Out and back

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony’s Highland holiday. He was looking across at Skye from the mainland when he took this shot. We were offered a fine morning with light winds so the sensible thing to do would be for me to get going as soon after breakfast as possible if IContinue reading “Out and back”

Free of charge

Today’s guest picture comes from my Canonbie friend Simon. He is back at work at outdoor sporting venues. He came across this fine crop of fungus on a Scottish golf course. We had another generally fine day today, although it inconsiderately started to rain just at the right time to spoil the chances of morningContinue reading “Free of charge”

Going to churches

Today’s guest picture comes from Natasha, Marianne’s daughter. It speaks for itself. We had a dry day, mostly sunny, fairly warm and very welcome. After my customary leisurely start to the day, I left Mrs Tootlepedal to have a sunny cup of coffee with Margaret in the garden, and went off to make the mostContinue reading “Going to churches”

Quiet morning, busy afternoon

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony who is having a break with Marianne on the Isle of Skye. He couldn’t have chosen a better place or had a better day. We had what looked as though it was going to be a good day here, but it flattered to deceive and if thereContinue reading “Quiet morning, busy afternoon”
