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”

A quiet day

Today’s guest pictures come from our sons. Tony produced the sweet corn and Alistair was responsible for the carrot. It is good to see them taking after their mother. We had a slightly circumscribed day today as Mrs Tootlepedal wasn’t quite at her peak and needed a visit to the doctor and a day inContinue reading “A quiet day”

Having fun regardless

Today’s guest picture comes from Venetia who was happy to be able to take a picture of her visiting badgers without using a flash. After a quiet morning, we packed into our cars and set off to visit a beach with the intention of taking part in that most British of all holiday activities, aContinue reading “Having fun regardless”

Through the rude wind’s wild lament….

I have run out of new guest pictures so I am returning to my Somerset correspondent Ventetia’s trip to America.  She was driven along some beautiful  but slightly scary roads. While we didn’t go quite as far as the guest picture, we were visited by some very unwelcome snow here and the temperature only justContinue reading “Through the rude wind’s wild lament….”

Feet on the ground

Today’s guest picture is another blast of Irene’s sunny South African sketches. We had a quietly grey day here today, dull but dry and calm.  It would have been another good day for a cycle ride and it has been annoying that probably the best two days for a bike ride that we are likelyContinue reading “Feet on the ground”

Green walk

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary’s Lake District trip.  I have shown you some of her nice bridges so I thought I better include a lake too.  This is Grasmere. The main business of the day was our Carlisle Community Choir concert in the afternoon but the morning was free for other things. Continue reading “Green walk”

Modified rapture

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter Annie’s allotment.  She has been growing radishes. We had a very windy day here in North Berwick today but it stayed dry and it wasn’t too cold in the morning even when it was cloudy. The sun soon came out and it turned into another lovely day. IContinue reading “Modified rapture”

Chaffinches are go

Today’s guest picture shows a pair of Egyptian geese looking very autumnal.  Our daughter Annie met them on a visit to the Serpentine in London. After a succession of rather grey days, we woke to brilliant sunshine today.  This meant that the temperature was on the low side but miraculously, it had stayed well aboveContinue reading “Chaffinches are go”

A sad farewell and two treats

Today’s guest picture comes from a recent visit to Nantwich by my brother Andrew.   Not only was the architecture stunning but it had a coffee house.  He was very happy. The chief business of the day was shedding a tear or two as we said goodbye to Matilda who was taking her parents back toContinue reading “A sad farewell and two treats”

An exciting destination

Today’s guest picture comes from my Newcastle correspondent and shows that I wasn’t the only one visiting castles on Bank Holiday Monday.  It shows Belsay Castle in the sun. We ran out of sunshine for the most part today, although there was the occasional ray to take in. On the plus side, the wind hadContinue reading “An exciting destination”
