Two flocks

Today’s guest picture comes from Langholm exile Tom in South Africa. He tells me that this is the South African national flower, the Protea. We had notice of a change in the weather today as the north wind died down to a whisper. By the end of the day, it was coming from the south,Continue reading “Two flocks”

Not quite all there

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan. She was very impressed by this cheerful stall which she encountered on an outing. She didn’t tell me whether she had sampled its wares. We were greeted by a sunny morning with cloudless blue skies here today, and a crisp coolness to go with it. Once again,Continue reading “Not quite all there”

Singing together apart

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who once again managed to extend her permitted walk as far as Regent’s Park where she found a favourite restful corner to enjoy. It was still grey and drizzly this morning, but the heavy winds of the past two days had eased off a lot and whenContinue reading “Singing together apart”

A piece of cake

Today”s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  He saw deer on one of his walks with his dogs.  The deer saw him but didn’t run away at once. To say that today was another uneventful day would be rather overstating the excitement.  The recent frost has put a damper on the pleasure of walkingContinue reading “A piece of cake”

Attila the gardener at work

Today’s guest picture is another from Bruce’s recent walk.  As well as his uncommunicative stranger, he encountered fifty shades of green.  I don’t think there can be a greener local view than this one. After the excitements of yesterday, it was back to the well trodden paths of lockdown today.  I rose late, ate aContinue reading “Attila the gardener at work”

Pushing the envelope

Today’s guest picture is a puzzle.  Is it the south of France? Is is a tropical Isle? No, it is sunny Wemyss turning up trumps yet again for the lens of our son Tony. We had a touch of frost in the very early morning but by the time that I got up the skyContinue reading “Pushing the envelope”

Lightly spotted

Today’s guest picture is a very painterly photograph of a nesting swan on a canal taken by my Welsh correspondent Keiron on his way to work today. There was a theoretical chance of rain today but once again we had a sunny morning and the street socially distanced coffee group (fortified by date rolls)  wasContinue reading “Lightly spotted”

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”

Solo singing

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony who spotted this bird flitting along the shore of the Firth of Forth.   I like the delicate colour combinations a lot. We had a grey but dry day here and although the temperature is getting more autumnal by the day, it was still warm enough for meContinue reading “Solo singing”

Feeling the heat

Today’s guest picture comes from Venetia who visited the very impressive flight of locks at Caen Hill on the Kennet and Avon canal. We had another fine and sunny day today, with the temperatures well up into the mid twenties (80F) so it was quite pleasant to go into the cool of the church toContinue reading “Feeling the heat”
