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”

Two short walks

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce who met an ugly customer when he was walking in the woods today. We were blessed with a genuine summer day here, warm from start to finish, and with plenty of sunshine to be going on with. I took advantage of the good weather to put aContinue reading “Two short walks”

Uphill work

Today’s guest picture comes from my camera club friend Simon. He has been taking walks round Canonbie during the lockdown and wonders why anyone might prefer city life to scenes like these. It was not a promising morning today here in any way, being windy and wet from the start. I did pop out intoContinue reading “Uphill work”

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”

Nothing but singing

Today’s guest picture comes from  my Manitoba correspondent, Mary Jo.  I think she must have moved on from Australia to New Zealand because today’s picture shows the Rakaia Gorge, which is in the South Island.  It was raining when she took the picture. Today was a busy day but it will give rise to aContinue reading “Nothing but singing”

Not up to Downton

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary.  She saw this early show of daffodils on her walk to Kenwood House today. We were up and about quite smartly today as our church organist had arranged a choir practice in the morning as he had a day off work.   When we got to the church,Continue reading “Not up to Downton”

Another rest (and a change)

Today’s guest picture once again arises from my brother Andrew taking his son on vigorous hill walks to help Nick prepare for a trek in Nepal.  Ignoring Storm Jorge’s strong winds, they battled up to the top of Bunster Hill and enjoyed this splendid view of the junction of the Rivers Dove and Manifold (andContinue reading “Another rest (and a change)”

The tenors get a tune

Today’s guest picture is another from Dropscone’s Amsterdam trip.  He took a tour of the canals in the city while he was there and saw the the Muziektheater, which is called now The National Opera and Ballet. We are beginning to have only a distant memory of the sun and it was no surprise toContinue reading “The tenors get a tune”

A change in the weather

Today’s guest picture comes from my friend Ada who was walking along the road to Newcastelton when she saw a very unusual bird at rest on the Langholm moor.  It was there as part of the works on maintaining our pylons. Our run of grey but dry days under a ridge of high pressure cameContinue reading “A change in the weather”

Going, going, gone

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who noticed these sculptures of  full stop on a recent visit to the South Bank of the Thames. Our day looked like this when I got up… …but it had become rather cloudy by the time that we got to church…. …and it had disappeared entirely byContinue reading “Going, going, gone”
