Mobbed again

Today’s guest picture comes from my Lancastrian correspondent Paul’s visit to the Lake District. It shows a well positioned seat placed in memory of Hugh Walpole. It is looking out over Derwent Water. We had another warm and dry day here, though the sun only made occasional appearances. Indeed it even tried to rain asContinue reading “Mobbed again”

Acting my age

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who extended her permitted walk as far as Regents Park where she enjoyed the rose garden. We had a warm and sunny day today with light winds.  Days like this are to be treasured. The star in the garden was the first peony, beating the tree peonyContinue reading “Acting my age”

Down came the rain

Today’s guest picture is a fine Welsh tree spotted by my fine welsh correspondent Keiron. Finally we got some steady rain here overnight, and although it wasn’t a downpour, there was enough rain to leave the ground looking definitely damp when we got up in the morning. It was deemed to be too cold andContinue reading “Down came the rain”

Azalea Armageddon

Today’s guest picture comes from Sandy.  He has attached a bird box to his shed and is very happy to see that it is getting used by blue tits. The day started with a WhatsApp conversation with Annie and Joe and our granddaughter Evie.  Evie is ten months old now and very grown up. WeContinue reading “Azalea Armageddon”

Two short planks

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who took it on one of his walks.  A local farmer has fenced off a section of a field for the convenience of walkers passing across his land, and fortunately it is just wide enough to allow for social distancing as required these days. Although it wasn’tContinue reading “Two short planks”

Near the bottom

Today’s guest picture comes from Gunta, a correspondent and fellow blogger who lives in SW Oregon.  Knowing that I like bridges, she has sent me this fine example, one of the most notable bridges in the Pacific Northwest.  It crosses the Rogue River near its mouth. We are only a day or two away fromContinue reading “Near the bottom”

Seeing the light

Today’s guest picture comes from a new contributor, Paul.  Like myself, he is a cyclist and obviously a keen photographer.  He is not absolutely sure but he thinks that this delightful shot was taken at Blea Tarn in the Lake District. We had another cold and sunny day today, but it was even colder thanContinue reading “Seeing the light”

A familiar pattern

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by my brother Andrew.  He is a great walker and recently walked with his walking group through a wood.  The substantial size of the trees can be gauged by noting the size of the walkers who can just be seen at the bottom of the frame. I hadContinue reading “A familiar pattern”

Better than expected

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew’s visit to Orviedo while he is in Spain.  It shows the  800 AD church of St Julian, built in the Byzanto-romano style, which the ruling Visigoths of Asturia liked. The advance forecast has been rather gloomy about the weather this week, but we got a stay ofContinue reading “Better than expected”

Hidden delight

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce who is visiting the Glasgow area and found himself at the start of the West Highland way in Milngavie.  He is not going to walk it though as it is 96 miles long. I have always believed that the autumn equinox came on the 21st of SeptemberContinue reading “Hidden delight”
