Rain assisted rest

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter Annie. She got dizzy just looking up at this crane. It rained in the night and it was still raining when we got up. As a result, it was quite easy for me to have a quiet morning in. What was not so satisfactory was that I choseContinue reading “Rain assisted rest”

A dull day

Today’s guest picture comes from a reader in Bucks Co., Pennsylvania. Spurred on by my biscuit making efforts, Lisa has produced her own Garibaldi biscuits which are very nicely presented. It was a day of constant wind here today, often gusting at over 40mph. As a result, apart from going out for a very shortContinue reading “A dull day”

Up and down

Today’s guest picture comes from camera club member Simon.  He was taken for a walk on our local hills by a friend.  They walked yesterday morning before the storm came.  A good choice. The storm arrived with some force yesterday evening, and we had a rather restless night  as the wind howled round the houseContinue reading “Up and down”

Slow progress

Today’s guest picture is another from Dropscone’s visit to Amsterdam. It was another wet and windy morning here, so I was happy to continue in my peaceful resting mode while Mrs Tootlepedal went off to her monthly coffee morning with ex work colleagues. I wasn’t left on my own though as Dropscone arrived with someContinue reading “Slow progress”

An important gathering

Today’s guest picture comes from Mike and Alison’s recent trip to New Zealand to visit their son and his family.  Knowing that I like a bridge, Alison showed me this picture to prove that they have bridges in New Zealand too. I am pleased to have a little sunshine in the guest picture because thereContinue reading “An important gathering”

More train strain

Today’s very appropriate guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  He not only photographed this Halloween lantern but also carved it himself and grew the plant too.  A man of many talents. We had another in our run of frosty mornings but dry days today and after coffee, I went out for a walk withContinue reading “More train strain”

Low

Today’s guest picture is the last from Dropscone’s Highland holiday.  He and his daughter Susan visited Loch Ness but resisted the charms of the cruise boat and drove round the loch by car instead.  They didn’t see a monster. It was another gloomy, damp day here with the clouds hanging low over the  town andContinue reading “Low”

Not up to much

Today’s guest picture comes from visit my brother Andrew paid to Peterborough Cathedral last month. Whatever the opposite of the saying, “Every cloud has a silver lining,” is applied to us today.  After a very grey day yesterday, we woke to brilliant sunshine but unfortunately it was accompanied by a brisk and very chilly northContinue reading “Not up to much”
