A full day

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  He sent me this gorgeous shot of the sun rising over East Wemyss this morning.  (I suspect that he may have run the image through the filter on his phone.) We had a sunny day here too and Mrs Tootlepedal thought that it would be a goodContinue reading “A full day”

A visit to Keswick

This is yesterday’s post today.  I didn’t get home until nearly midnight last night and I had many pictures to look through this morning.  The result is a post with too many pictures but I have tried to keep the commentary to a minimum to spare those long suffering souls who politely read to theContinue reading “A visit to Keswick”

Raining and singing (but not in the rain)

Today’s guest picture was taken by my daughter Annie and shows some old gentleman or other in the garden on a wet day at Dalemain in Cumbria. Our daughter was visiting for a couple of days so naturally the rain clouds set in and it was a miserable morning.  A quick check on the weatherContinue reading “Raining and singing (but not in the rain)”

Early to rise, early to bed

Today’s guest picture is another from my neighbour Liz’s venture to New Zealand.  It shows Tane Mahuta, thought to be the oldest Kauri tree in NZ  at 2000 years old and with a  height of 51.5 meters and a girth of 13.8 metres. Yesterday I had suggested a jaunt to the Lake District to MrsContinue reading “Early to rise, early to bed”

A day out

The guest picture of the day was kindly provided by my sister Susan, being one that was surplus to requirements in her own blog.  It shows just how much money is washing round the City of London when they can afford such fancy bollards. For busy readers, I should mention that Mrs Tootlepedal and IContinue reading “A day out”

I’ve looked at life from both sides now

Today’s picture shows a small flock of chaffinches waiting to say goodbye to Mrs Tootlepedal and me as we left them to fend for themselves for a day. They had to wait a bit because before we left, I went round the morning run with Dropscone.  Having completed 1000 miles on his slower winter bike,Continue reading “I’ve looked at life from both sides now”

On a clear day you could see quite well

Today’s picture shows my sister Susan on Mt Taranaki in New Zealand where she is visiting friends and linking up with my brother and his wife who are also there.  He sent me this picture. We were just as sunny as that today but  we were a lot colder and I had to break theContinue reading “On a clear day you could see quite well”

On a clear day

Today’s picture was taken by my neighbour Liz last month on the top of Castle Hill.  She has got many fine pictures on her phone but we have only just managed to show her how to get them off it.  It was full to bursting when she took this one so she couldn’t get aContinue reading “On a clear day”

Cupboard love

Today’s picture shows Whita Hill at eleven o’clock this morning.  The long shadows show how low the sun sits in our sky at this time of year, even when it is nearly noon. On the plus side, at least the sun was actually out.  It was a nearly windless day with the temperature well belowContinue reading “Cupboard love”

A false dawn

Today’s picture shows the formidable Stuc a’Chroin (975m) seen from Ben Vorlich (985m) by my brother Andrew when he was on an energetic walk in the Highlands. It started off as a lovely day in every way.  Anthony had finished the painting of the kitchen before I had even got out of bed and heContinue reading “A false dawn”
