Moving in a different circle

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan who found this very striking plant in a garden on one of her walks round her neighbourhood in London. I’d like start this post with a word of thanks to reader Derrick who spotted that three pictures were missing from yesterday’s effort and was kind enough toContinue reading “Moving in a different circle”

Ooops!

Today’s guest picture is a very strange aperture in the clouds sent to me by our son Tony. Perhaps the weather gods had opened their kitchen window to see what he was up to down below. We had a second sunny day running here today.   Once again, it was quite chilly after breakfast so IContinue reading “Ooops!”

Getting a stitch

Today’s guest picture was taken by my sister Mary in the Japanese Garden in Holland Park, London, England a few days ago. That is a nice international medley of names to go with a delightful picture taken on a dull day. After our very brief burst of springlike weather yesterday, we were back in theContinue reading “Getting a stitch”

A grand tour

Today’s guest picture, taken by Bruce’s daughter and forwarded to me by him, shows Guthrie, having woken up, wondering where the next meal is coming from. We were up promptly in the morning but got away a few minutes behind schedule on a trip to Lockerbie.  This time we were not catching the train toContinue reading “A grand tour”

Good route choice

Today’s guest picture, sent to me by Matilda’s father, shows the great lengths that he and Clare go to in order to keep Matilda entertained. We were blessed with another dry day today with occasional sunshine and light winds. After the success of the gentle pedal and walk yesterday, I thought I might be ableContinue reading “Good route choice”

The Wizard of Oz

Today’s picture was sent to me by my sister Mary.  It has been very hot indeed in London and it looks as though the majority of the population of that great city were out dangling their toes in the water at Parliament Hill Fields on Sunday. I didn’t have time to dangle anything this morningContinue reading “The Wizard of Oz”

Treacle Sunday

This should have been an interesting post but WordPress seems to have eaten it instead of publishing it and it is too late for me to write it all again. I am going to try just to put the pictures in.  Dropscone has a new bike, we went for a nice pedal.  Sandy arrived andContinue reading “Treacle Sunday”

Going for a drive in the country

Today’s picture, courtesy of Jennifer in Western Australia again, is a pardalote, one of the peep wren family  (as if you don’t know that already). Here we were greeted by the lightest possible snowfall… …and temperatures just high enough to leave a flower or two in business. I was pleased to see a tit tuckingContinue reading “Going for a drive in the country”
