A one handed clap

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. His son arrived and cut down a tree in his garden, leaving Andrew’s lawn well hidden. We had dire warnings of a 90% chance of heavy rain with thunder and lightning throughout the day. So although we were quite pleased to have occasional rain and only oneContinue reading “A one handed clap”

Modified rapture

Today’s guest picture comes from my nephew Dan who is in Tromsø in Norway.  It rained so much that he and his companion had to take refuge in the Tromsdalen Church, sometimes called the Arctic Cathedral. The forecast, which had suggested a sunny day and a temperature of five degrees by lunchtime, was partially right. Continue reading “Modified rapture”

Dogged determination

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce.  Not long ago he was in Glasgow where he was very impressed by the Doulton Fountain, the largest ceramic fountain ever built.  It was one of the most popular attractions at the 1888 International Exhibition in Kelvingrove Park. It was raining heavily when we woke up, butContinue reading “Dogged determination”

The perils of procrastination

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Alistair and is a result of a recent visit to Edinburgh zoo where Matilda paid close attention to feeding a parrot. In the morning, we entertained Sandy to a cup of coffee and got an update on the state of his walking.  He is suffering a lot moreContinue reading “The perils of procrastination”

We didn’t get the drift

Today’s guest picture shows a very cool customer who turned up in my son Tony’s back garden yesterday. Tony was busy again today. I notice that he got out of the igloo before he let anyone stand on it. The snow was still here this morning in Langholm too.  The wind had sighed and moanedContinue reading “We didn’t get the drift”

Two walks and a warble

Today’s picture comes from my friend Bruce who saw a horse in a field across a canal.  We will get closer to it tomorrow. We had another near freezing but sunny day today and it was most frustrating.  I have hardly done any cycling this month, what with bad weather and a long and irritatingContinue reading “Two walks and a warble”

Out to lunch

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent, Venetia.  She has been volunteering at the Somerset Rural Life Museum and was struck by the enormous crop of windfalls from the apple trees there.  The sheep seems rather disappointed with them. After the brilliantly clear moon when we went to bed last night, we weren’t surprisedContinue reading “Out to lunch”

Sunshine and bonding

Today’s guest picture comes from my son Tony who has been experimenting with my old Lumix which I gave to him on Thursday.  This is his ‘flying birds’ taken at none  o’clock in the evening.. We had a really lovely day today with a cool underlying temperature (17° C at its hottest) and wall toContinue reading “Sunshine and bonding”

Sunshine and singing

Today’s guest picture comes from Venetia, my Somerset correspondent, who has been touring the wonderful shops to be found in Glastonbury.  She had to step back a little when this book illustration flew at her. We woke to a different world this morning.  The soggy green had been covered up by a sparkling frost andContinue reading “Sunshine and singing”

Another day, anther concert

Talking of wild flowers, today’s guest picture was taken by my daughter Annie in a man made wild flower area in her local park in the middle of London. We got the cold and windy weather today, a day late after some overnight rain, but it was not as bad as it might have beenContinue reading “Another day, anther concert”
