Six bridges!

Today’s guest picture is another stolen from contributions sent to me for the last camera club meeting. This is a view that Stan took when he was up a hill in the Ewes Valley. It shows just how flat and narrow the valley bottom is. Our spell of very mixed weather continued today, and itContinue reading “Six bridges!”

A ray of sunshine

Today’s guest picture is another from my Somerset correspondent Venetia’s trip to Norway. She sent me this ‘postcard’ from the most northerly town in mainland Europe. We had a better day here than yesterday as far as the weather went. Dropscone was complaining about the cold wind when he cycled round for scones and coffeeContinue reading “A ray of sunshine”

Flat

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Alistair in Edinburgh. It was snowing there this morning but it didn’t fill him with the spirit of winter wonderland. He had a car journey to make. It was grey and frosty again here but it didn’t snow. We had a leisurely morning and around about coffee time,Continue reading “Flat”

More rain but time for a walk too

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She and my brother Andrew are trying to match each other with swan pictures at the moment. This was Mary’s original effort today. We were woken by some very heavy rain, so after breakfast I walked down to the park bridge in a light drizzle to seeContinue reading “More rain but time for a walk too”

Two choirs and three bridges

Today’s guest picture comes from my files. Looking back, I don’t think that I have used this fine slightly surreal shot taken by my brother Andrew. (If I have, it deserves another outing anyway.) It was rainy when we got up, and the prospects did not look good. However, it stopped raining as soon asContinue reading “Two choirs and three bridges”

A busy but uneventful day

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She came upon a herd of deer on a visit to Somerset yesterday. We woke to a grey and wet day here, and although it dried up, it didn’t get much less grey until the very end of the day. With nothing better to do, I putContinue reading “A busy but uneventful day”

Stretching legs and fingers

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony’s Highland holiday. He has had some fine weather up there. I had quite a full day here today, though I allowed myself a gentle start. It was warm and cloudy when Dropscone came round for coffee (and scones) and Mrs Tootlepedal went off to have herContinue reading “Stretching legs and fingers”

Goodbye, hello

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He was on a father’s day walk with his boys today when he met these two interesting customers. We had a fine summer day here, with plenty of sun, warm temperatures and not too much wind. It is a pity that almost perfect cycling days often seemContinue reading “Goodbye, hello”

Rain fall

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by our friend Gavin. His daughter is in Borculo in the Netherlands and found this equivalent of our Beechy Plains. It looks better than ours does at the moment. It had rained all night, so before I had my breakfast, I thought that I should go and lookContinue reading “Rain fall”

Unsupported

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. It shows my sister Susan chatting to an old friend in Granary Square in London. (Susan notes that the flowers are plastic.) After an inch and a half of rain overnight, we woke to a grey and drizzly morning here. Chaffinches didn’t seem to mind the rainContinue reading “Unsupported”
