Home alone

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in East Wemyss. He was on holiday yesterday and was able to wait until the sun had come up before taking his dogs out for a walk in the woods. After a very welcome sunny day here yesterday, there was no chance of seeing the sun atContinue reading “Home alone”

A short cut

Today’s guest picture comes from our neighbour, Liz. Needing a bit of brightness to enliven anther drab day here, I am happy to use this picture which she took when she walked up Warbla during our recent bright but chilly spell. I had a very quiet morning on a grey, chilly and windy day. IContinue reading “A short cut”

A day of song

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She met a moorhen on a recent outing.. It stayed above freezing here overnight but it was far from warm as we cycled to church this morning. Only four choir members turned up, but as the hymns provided plenty of opportunity for cheerful singing, we did ourContinue reading “A day of song”

Inflated expectations

Today’s guest picture comes from Mrs Tootlepedal. She cycled up to the tree nursery today and took a picture just to show that she had got there. The seedlings are in winter mode now. We had a much better day of weather here today, with no clouds sitting on the town. It didn’t go soContinue reading “Inflated expectations”

Singing and sunshine

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. At first glance, you may think that you can see many Santas in this festive shop display, but a closer examination will show multiple self portraits of the clever photographer. We had a much better day here today as far as the weather went. Although there wereContinue reading “Singing and sunshine”

A late walk

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He managed to take a very atmospheric picture as he crossed the River Derwent late on a misty afternoon recently. We had a marked change in the weather here today as we went back to a prolonged spell of rain. Luckily, not only did Margaret join usContinue reading “A late walk”

More rain but time for a walk too

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She and my brother Andrew are trying to match each other with swan pictures at the moment. This was Mary’s original effort today. We were woken by some very heavy rain, so after breakfast I walked down to the park bridge in a light drizzle to seeContinue reading “More rain but time for a walk too”

An exciting if dull walk

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone who has arrived at Orkney. After the excitements of singing with a choir of fifty yesterday, it was a change to be part of a choir of six in our church service today. Once again though, we did our best. Our organ repairs are nearly completed and Henry, ourContinue reading “An exciting if dull walk”

Much better than expected

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in East Wemyss. Like us they had sunshine and clouds there today. Edinburgh seems to be under the cloud. Once again there had been weather warnings for strong winds and heavy rain, and once again we woke to rain, but it was not very heavy and thereContinue reading “Much better than expected”

Over excited

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan. She found these lovely lilies in a supermarket cafe where she was taking a well earned break. We had a very wet morning indeed here, with steady heavy rain making for a gloomy atmosphere outside. Luckily Dropscone came in at coffee time bringing scones with him, andContinue reading “Over excited”
