A day of unrest

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in sunny East Wemyss. Three days ago, his sun had unusual sparkle. We needed a guest picture with sparkle because after a gloomy day yesterday, we had another fairly gloomy day today. It was dry and warmer than it has been lately, and it stayed above freezingContinue reading “A day of unrest”

Head in the clouds

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. It shows that while we may have sunrises in Langholm, he can match them with sunsets in Derby. If the sun did indeed rise over Langholm this morning, we didn’t see it. We were covered in mist. After breakfast, I decided to drive up to the WhiteContinue reading “Head in the clouds”

Gales, what gales?

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary’s visit to Regents Park this week on her way to play tennis. Another circular feature caught her eye. It is Triton blowing a conch shell while being supported by mermaids. The forecast for today was horrendous with heavy rain and fifty miles an hour winds but theContinue reading “Gales, what gales?”

Wild goose chase

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary’s visit to Regents park last week, She was impressed by this fine floral display. I was too. We woke to a wet and miserable morning so it was fortunate that there was a testing crossword to help me waste some time. For want of anything more exciting,Continue reading “Wild goose chase”

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”

Out of sync

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew’s walk today, and shows a sign of the times, a golf course with no golfers on it. Our slightly unsettling spell of dry and sunny weather continued.  The forecast says it may not rain until net Tuesday but, more importantly for me, it also says that theContinue reading “Out of sync”

Plan C today

Today’s guest picture comes from my Welsh correspondent Keiron.  He had a lovely day for a pedal along the towpath. It was cold and grey here when we got up and my original plan (Plan A) for the day was to go back to bed after breakfast, pull the covers over my head and hopeContinue reading “Plan C today”

Another blow

Today’s guest picture comes from my camera club friend Simon.  He was walking along the Esk near Canonbie when he saw these people having fun. It was a better day here today with outbreaks of sunshine and no rain until the evening.  Unfortunately, the persistent strong wind was on the go again and it madeContinue reading “Another blow”

Not up to Downton

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary.  She saw this early show of daffodils on her walk to Kenwood House today. We were up and about quite smartly today as our church organist had arranged a choir practice in the morning as he had a day off work.   When we got to the church,Continue reading “Not up to Downton”

Norwegian weather

Today’s guest post is another from Joyce’s Bermuda collection.  As well as glorious beaches she visited the zoo at Flatt Island where she found this lovely lemur. When we woke up, we were very pleased to find the Norwegian weather forecast had been reliable and we had a second sunny day in succession.  What wasContinue reading “Norwegian weather”
