A mixed day

My brother Andrew doesn’t like to let the grass grow under his feet, but he found on his walk today that he couldn’t afford to hang about as the grass is growing pretty quickly. After a wet and windy night here, we woke up to find the sun out and the wind not as fierceContinue reading “A mixed day”

Cutting it fine

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Alistair, and shows just the sort of delicious meal that we would be enjoying if we were allowed to go to Edinburgh to visit Matilda. We are missing Matilda but we are missing Al’s cooking too. We had a dry but windy day today, windy and chilly enoughContinue reading “Cutting it fine”

The cutting edge

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan who saw this all electric hire car getting a charge in a street the other day. It was warmer today but no less grey in the morning and we were pleased to get to church and back before it started to rain.  As I may have mentioned,Continue reading “The cutting edge”

Bad timing

After yesterday’s guest picture of boating in Birmingham, my brother’s guest picture for today shows navigation in Nottingham. The best plan for today from a cycling point of view would have been to get out for a ride promptly while the wind was fairly light and the day was fair but unfortunately my other planContinue reading “Bad timing”

Hedge scratching

Today’s guest picture comes from a visit my sister Mary paid to the Isabella Plantation in Richmond Park a day or two ago.  It seems like a very good place to visit at this time of year. We had yet another dry and windy day today but it was a bit warmer than it hasContinue reading “Hedge scratching”

Action

Today’s guest picture is another from Dropscone’s continental excursion and shows a fine bridge over the Schlei at Kappeln in Schleswig-Flensburg.  Dropscone points out that it is just the same as Tower Bridge in London….but without the towers of course. Our spell of warm weather continued today and it was up to a  most unseasonalContinue reading “Action”

Ever increasing circles

Today’s guest picture shows a most unusual gardener who was at work in Regent’s Park as my sister Mary walked by. My day started with double fun at the health centre where a novice vampire took a little blood from me and a kindly lady stabbed me in the shoulder.  With my blood test completeContinue reading “Ever increasing circles”

Fly me to the moon

Today’s picture shows some Edinburgh gulls having a family outing at breakfast time  on the roof opposite my son Alistair’s flat. It was a windy, showery day today but if you picked your moment, there were opportunities to work and play.  I picked a dry spell to have another tentative pedal of thirteen miles justContinue reading “Fly me to the moon”
