An extra window

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who passed this municipal work of art, The Rings of Derby, on his walk today. What it signifies is a bit of a mystery. It was slightly warmer today than recent days in Langholm, but if possible, it was slightly greyer too. As it was still remarkablyContinue reading “An extra window”

A touch of late colour

Today’s guest picture come from our sonTony in East Wemyss. Not only do they have apparently perpetual sunshine there, but they also have free apples for passers by. It is a demi-paradise. We had another cool and cloudy morning here and, typically, we had just got settled down to coffee in the garden when theContinue reading “A touch of late colour”

Up and about

Today’s guest picture is another from Dropscone’s Northumbrian holiday.  It shows his daughter and granddaughter on their way to visit the castle on Holy island.

My morning walk to the (corner) shop once againContinue reading “Going full circle”

Better

Today’s guest picture is another from Venetia’s visit to the Haynes International Motor Museum.  This is a 1949 Jaguar 3.5 litre saloon and very nice too.  They keep the exhibits very well polished. The day started much as yesterday had finished, windy and grey. I wisely spent so much time over breakfast that by theContinue reading “Better”

The rain it raineth every day….and all that jazz

Today’s picture was taken by my brother Andrew recently in Norfolk and shows his wife, Catherine taking the dry route across the ford with her bicycle. It rained again today.  It rained often.  It rained heavily.  It did stop about 3 o’clock in the afternoon but only after the heaviest downpour of the day. ThereContinue reading “The rain it raineth every day….and all that jazz”
