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”

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”

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”

Gentleman in waiting

Today’s stunning guest picture was sent to me my friend and fellow church choir member, Anne. It was taken by her son, David, on the Moray Firth. He didn’t realise at the time that there are two animals hidden in the picture. We had another fine day here. This was very lucky as Mrs TootlepedalContinue reading “Gentleman in waiting”

Progress

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who has been enjoying her walks up to Kenwood recently. She had this fine view of the grounds on Wednesday. We had a cool, grey morning here today, definitely feeling like autumn a lot more than like late summer. It stayed dry though, but with the temperatureContinue reading “Progress”

A wet walk

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan. She is very pleased to see that her neighbourhood is taking covid precautions seriously. The very welcome arrival of our daughter Annie with her daughter Evie has not surprisingly caused a ripple to run across the smooth surface of our lockdown lives. As a result, blog postsContinue reading “A wet walk”

Service with a smile

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Alistair in Edinburgh. He spotted a visitor on his garden fence. We had some long awaited rain overnight which was very welcome. Conveniently it stopped for long enough to let us have our regular garden coffee morning, though it must be said that a light drizzle had startedContinue reading “Service with a smile”

Rain later

Today’s guest picture is another from our neighbour Liz’s walk with Riley,  As well as the waterfall, she saw some very early primroses, sheltering beside the stream. We saw the return of grey and windy weather today which was a disappointment after our dry week, but at least the forecast rain didn’t arrive until afterContinue reading “Rain later”
