Going nowhere

Today’s guest picture is another from one of my brother Andrew’s walks. He knows that I like canal bridges. This one is on the Trent and Mersey canal. We had a day of rain here today . I wouldn’t say that it rained heavily all day, but when it wasn’t raining heavily, it was raining fairly heavily. ToContinue reading “Going nowhere”

On the up

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She visited the Secret Garden in Regents Park on one of her recent walks. She was the only one there. After a rather cheerless day yesterday, things got better today. The forecast of sunshine and showers provided us with a good deal more sunshine than showers forContinue reading “On the up”

Not out

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. Like my sister Mary in London, he enjoyed a good sunset in Derby yesterday evening (with added water). We didn’t enjoy anything very much here today. It was cloud right down to the ground all day from morning until night. After breakfast, Mrs Tootlepedal did manage aContinue reading “Not out”

A good deal of to-ing and fro-ing

Today’s guest picture comes from our neighbour Liz. She came across some very colourful fungus on her walk today. With high pressure settled over us, we had another quiet and chilly day here today. There was no sun about and as a result there was no mist either. It was too chilly to make cyclingContinue reading “A good deal of to-ing and fro-ing”

Mrs Tootlepedal is wiser

Today’s guest picture comes from both of my two older sisters, Mary and Susan. Like us, they have socially distanced coffee outdoors when they can. Today they each took photos of the other. As it was Mrs Tootlepedal’s birthday, she got a little bit older and a little bit wiser today. Since she had meContinue reading “Mrs Tootlepedal is wiser”

Lace up

Today’s guest picture is another from Laura in Michigan. It shows St. Joseph Lighthouse, St. Joseph, 20 miles from where she lives. Her husband cycles there and back she tells me. It certainly looks worth visiting. We had a day without rain, wind or sun. Meteorologically it was a low scoring dull day. Mrs TootlepedalContinue reading “Lace up”

Not quite all there

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan. She was very impressed by this cheerful stall which she encountered on an outing. She didn’t tell me whether she had sampled its wares. We were greeted by a sunny morning with cloudless blue skies here today, and a crisp coolness to go with it. Once again,Continue reading “Not quite all there”

A very welcome sight in the garden

Today’s guest picture comes from my camera club friend Simon. After the easing of the lockdown, he has been able to get back to his regular employment of working at sports events and he found this splendidly twisted tree on a golf course. It is my policy only to use pictures taken on the dayContinue reading “A very welcome sight in the garden”

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…..”

Best foot forward

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone.  On one of his permitted walks, he found a friend. As far as light for taking photographs went, it was a day of two halves with some good sunshine to start off.  This brought the best out of the tulips… …and got us quite excited about the coming ofContinue reading “Best foot forward”
