Busy doing nothing

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. He was up at the crack of dawn today with his dogs to see a typical East Wemyss day in the making. On the other side of the country, we had a different picture when we got up (several hours later than Tony) with mist covered hillsContinue reading “Busy doing nothing”

Crossed lines

Today’s guest photograph comes from my sister Caroline. She found some nice looking lawn tennis courts where people seemed to prefer drinking coffee to playing the game. We had another day here which took a bit of time to warm up, but by midday, the clouds had cleared away and it was wonderfully sunny butContinue reading “Crossed lines”

A pedal and a tootle!

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce who was beside the Tarras Water today. I expect that this golden-ringed dragonfly was having a rest as it was obviously tired. We had another mostly grey but dry day here today, still a bit cool for the time of the year, but there was nothing toContinue reading “A pedal and a tootle!”

Staying in

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. His walking group followed a path through the middle of a field today. It looks odd but it must be an old right of way. They are not trampling crops. We found ourselves a little tired here today after the departure of Matilda and her parents yesterday.Continue reading “Staying in”

Winding down

Today’s guest picture is another of Laura’s from St Joseph, Michigan. We got up to some heavy showers and strong winds here today. It wasn’t the best weather for the last day of Clare, Alistair and Matilda’s stay with us, but we made the best of it. Mrs Tootlepedal had a busy morning taking theContinue reading “Winding down”

Involuntary weight loss

Today’s guest picture comes from Sandy’s adventures in Thailand.  They are very thorough there and even elephants have to be washed up after meals. I rose at my usual time and did both vocal and leg exercises before Dropscone arrived for coffee bringing scones with him. I wasn’t feeling very well before he came andContinue reading “Involuntary weight loss”

Checks and cures

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony.   He must live in a sunny place now he has moved to his new house because the locals have turned their wellies into a garden. It was a crisp and bright morning with the thermometer in the car showing 5°C as I took the car to theContinue reading “Checks and cures”

Sight seeing

Today’s guest picture comes from my Newcastle Correspondent, Fiona, who is in Amsterdam. She thought that I might like this cycle repair shop sign. It was another day of frequent showers, mostly quite short but often quite heavy.  My scientific rain gauge is measuring over three inches of rain for the week and it isContinue reading “Sight seeing”

Changeable weather

Today’s guest picture comes from Mary Jo in Manitoba, or to be more precise, over Manitoba in her aeroplane from which she could see the effect of having a pivotal irrigation system. A variety of forecasters were offering a variety of forecasts today but they all involved rain at some time or other.  I decidedContinue reading “Changeable weather”
