Walking the walk

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary.  She has been suffering from a bad cold but has recovered enough to walk up to Kenwood House to have a coffee and a mince pie in the cafe.  She found a very fine day for her excursion. We had another calm and sunny day here todayContinue reading “Walking the walk”

Low down behaviour

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who was on my brother Andrew’s birthday trip at the end of last month.  This is the Severn at Worcester. We had a beautifully sunny morning here.  There was still a bit of snow around and as I had to go up to the Moorland Feeders toContinue reading “Low down behaviour”

Testing, testing

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew, who found some nice light in a quarry on a walk at Little Eaton. The main excitement of the day was caused by the arrival of workmen who are going to replace the bridge over the dam in the street outside our house. Our road will beContinue reading “Testing, testing”

Casting a long shadow

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony’s visit to the pre Christmas fun in Edinburgh.  He saw salmon being smoked. We had another frosty but bright day today with the temperature once again struggling to get above zero. Most of the morning was spent getting everything packed and ready for the departure ofContinue reading “Casting a long shadow”

We had been promised that temperatures would start to rise by today but it turned out that this happy state of affairs was delayed and the lawn was frosty again when we woke up. It took until about 7 o’clock in theContinue reading “Mist again”

A clean sweep

Today’s guest picture come from Mike Tinker.  It was sent to him by the owner of a cottage in Wales where Mike and Alison often spend a week on holiday (but not when it is as snowy as this). The deep snow in Wales is a reminder of how lightly we in Langholm have beenContinue reading “A clean sweep”

Cold comfort

Today’s guest picture comes from Irving, who sent me this fine shot of the bottom of Bealach-na ba on the way to Applecross, one of the most spectacular roads in Scotland. We had another day of frozen sunshine here, with temperatures at zero or below all day.  However, with stories of snow and slush inContinue reading “Cold comfort”

Mostly sitting around

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone’s southern Odyssey.  He went about as far as he could go and found himself and Susan at Beach Head on a very misty day. We had another wonderfully sunny day today but this one was more in line with the way that things should be in January and wasContinue reading “Mostly sitting around”
