A higher purpose

Today’s guest picture comes from a walk my sister Mary took through the rose garden in Regents Park last week. Our unsettled weather continued here today with the morning peppered with short showers, some of them quite sharp with a little hail thrown in. This curtailed our street coffee meeting and kept gardening to aContinue reading “A higher purpose”

Stretching my legs

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who, for her permitted exercise, walked up to the top of the hill and looked down on London . We had another bright and sunny morning, perhaps not as cold as yesterday.  I was able to walk round the garden in shirtsleeves to admire the zing ofContinue reading “Stretching my legs”

Best foot forward

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone.  On one of his permitted walks, he found a friend. As far as light for taking photographs went, it was a day of two halves with some good sunshine to start off.  This brought the best out of the tulips… …and got us quite excited about the coming ofContinue reading “Best foot forward”

Up the wall

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary.  Photo opportunities are scarce in lockdown London but she captured this squirrel with her phone on her short local walk today. It was another chilly and mostly grey day here but once again it was dry and the rain gauge has been stubbornly recording no inches ofContinue reading “Up the wall”

Making the most of my one expedition

Today’s guest picture comes from Matilda.  She is off school but obviously getting good art lessons at home. Here, we had another dry day with a lot of thin cloud again.  It did get slightly warmer in the afternoon and may well have got into double figures at last. We are limited in what weContinue reading “Making the most of my one expedition”

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. It was sunny here, the wind had dropped, the cattle had been taken off Meikleholm Hill, and it was a perfect day for a walk up a hill.  So IContinue reading “Up and about”

In the garden

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan who was taking some refreshment in Russell Square when she noticed that she was being watched. We had a day of almost uninterrupted sunshine and light winds, ideal for pottering about the garden so this is what I did.  I thought of going for a bike rideContinue reading “In the garden”

Hail smiling morn

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who started the new year by visiting the strangely named Locko Park where he met a fine lake. Our year here started with a brilliantly sunny but rather chilly day.  I would have liked to have taken part in the eight mile walk/run event that starts theContinue reading “Hail smiling morn”

Cold comfort

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who was out and about and saw skaters on the temporary ice rink at Somerset House.  It always looks a rather staid way of having fun to me. We had a second sunny day today but the weather gods had another trick up their sleeve and keptContinue reading “Cold comfort”

Scones, scuttling around and singing

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony’s walk round the Wemyss Estate.  As well as a parakeet in a tree, he came across a curious deer which was looking a bit lost. We were visited by storm Diana today.  I must say that the practice of giving passing weather fronts a name isContinue reading “Scones, scuttling around and singing”
