Another fine day

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew in Derby. He spotted a local heron having a day on the tiles. We could hardly believe our luck here when we had a second dry day in succession. We made good use of it. Mrs Tootlepedal drove up to the Langholm Moor, where she and otherContinue reading “Another fine day”

Getting things fixed

Today’s guest picture is another from Paul. He was happy to see that cricket had started again after the lockdown. As a day, this was one that did not get entered on the credit side of the great ledger of life, although it did have some redeeming features. First, the less attractive part: after breakfast,Continue reading “Getting things fixed”

A non standard day

Today’s guest picture comes from Natasha, the daughter of our son Tony’s partner Marianne. Natasha was looking across the Forth at Newhaven Harbour on the Edinburgh shore. It was just as sunny today on her side as it always seems to be on Tony’s side. We had a better day today than our recent coolContinue reading “A non standard day”

Walking the walk

Today’s guest picture comes from my Welsh cycling correspondent Keiron. He spotted this serene family of swans making their way up the canal. We had hardly a blink of that nice sunshine here today as it was another cloudy and cool day, but the rain in general held off until the late afternoon and eveningContinue reading “Walking the walk”

A minor tragedy at the end of the day

Today’s guest picture shows our friend Bruce going to extreme lengths to capture a picture of a newt for the blog. In the end, the picture of him capturing the picture was better than the picture itself so it appears here and not the newt. It was warm here today, but windy and drizzly too,Continue reading “A minor tragedy at the end of the day”

A ride of four halves

Today’s guest picture comes from another visit to Regents Park by my sister Mary. She would like to be playing tennis there, but that is not possible yet so she enjoys the flowers instead. We had another unpromising morning and light drizzle put paid to a garden coffee meeting. Luckily a rather annoying crossword keptContinue reading “A ride of four halves”

A new look

Today’s guest picture comes from Venetia, my Somerset correspondent. She has taken advantage of the new latitude allowed in England to visit Lytes Cary Manor where she found a doorway of infinite promise. I have been fiddling about with the new editor and have settled on this layout at least for the time being. IContinue reading “A new look”

Just like the grand old duke

Today’s guest picture comes from cyclist and Lake District lover Paul. He sent me this picture to show that the sun doesn’t always shine on Buttermere. The sun certainly shone here in Langholm today, and once again watering was needed in the garden. Mrs Tootlepedal spotted strange goings on on one of the paths offContinue reading “Just like the grand old duke”

Down came the rain

Today’s guest picture is a fine Welsh tree spotted by my fine welsh correspondent Keiron. Finally we got some steady rain here overnight, and although it wasn’t a downpour, there was enough rain to leave the ground looking definitely damp when we got up in the morning. It was deemed to be too cold andContinue reading “Down came the rain”

Pushing the boundary

Today’s guest picture, like yesterday’s, comes from Canada but shows a different view of Thanksgiving Day there.  Langholm exile Joyce sent me this view from her window in Ontario. We had an altogether better day today here as far as the weather went, with not even a hint of a raindrop about.  My plan wasContinue reading “Pushing the boundary”
