A bit much

Today’s guest picture comes from Sandy. It shows the impressive hotel where he and two friends stayed while on their recent holiday in Yorkshire. We didn’t have an impressive day here today at all. It was cool and grey in the morning, and cool and wet in the afternoon. In the morning, Mrs Tootlepedal e-cycledContinue reading “A bit much”

A good walk in the woods

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. He spotted this heron enjoying the East Wemyss sunshine and sea earlier this week. I had to be up early in the morning, as I had to drive our two new electric bikes down to the bike shop at opening time. They were due to get theirContinue reading “A good walk in the woods”

Faith rewarded

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce. He was amused by the placing of this bollard, and wondered whether it was there for drivers or sailors. We had another sociable morning today, with both Sandy and Margaret coming round for coffee and conversation. When they had gone their separate ways, we got out intoContinue reading “Faith rewarded”

Wounded by wind

Today’s guest picture comes from my Lancashire correspondent Paul who is visiting Cumbria again. It shows the “Tufa house”at Holehird Gardens near Windermere, run by the Lakeland Horticultural Society. He is thinking of volunteering with them. We had another dry, cool and windy day here today, and I was in no rush to be upContinue reading “Wounded by wind”

A gift from nature

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan. She is on holiday in Norfolk and was diverted through circumstances beyond her control from her original destination of Great Yarmouth, which is by the sea, to Swaffham, which is in the middle of nowhere. A consolation is the elegant tower on the church of St PeterContinue reading “A gift from nature”

A cycle (and an occasional walk) on the wild side

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He was on his way to Kings Lynn when he came to a bridge at Stamford. Knowing that I like a bridge, he took a photograph of it. It was another dull day here, and to suit the weather we had rather a dull morning with onlyContinue reading “A cycle (and an occasional walk) on the wild side”

A long day but not much doing

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who found himself standing under a bridge on the now empty Nottingham Canal. I suspect that one of his sons took the picture. It was decidedly cool this morning, and even though it was another still day, we needed a jumper on to go out in comfort.Continue reading “A long day but not much doing”

An unexpected visitor

Today’s guest picture shows Tony’s dogs enjoying some of that eternal sunshine in East Wemyss. After our mini heatwave, we returned to more sensible temperatures here today. If the sun had shone, it would have been perfect, but it turned out to be cloudy all day and we had to have a jumper on forContinue reading “An unexpected visitor”

Best foot forward

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone.  On one of his permitted walks, he found a friend. As far as light for taking photographs went, it was a day of two halves with some good sunshine to start off.  This brought the best out of the tulips… …and got us quite excited about the coming ofContinue reading “Best foot forward”

A spring in our step

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony who found this very unexpected thistle pie while out on a walk.  He may have had a hand in its creation.  The things that people do during lockdown. (He says that the recipe for the pie can be found at http://www.thistlehurtyour hand.com.) The weather changed this morningContinue reading “A spring in our step”
