One step back

Today’s guest picture, forwarded to me by Mike Tinker and taken by his daughter Liz, shows a delightful scene with cormorants at Linlithgow. I was a bit taken aback last night. After feeling that my back was definitely on the mend through the day, I got a bit of shock when I tried to lieContinue reading “One step back”

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”

Another day, another walk and another cough

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary, who popped over to Paris for some culture.  She bravely used that external escalator. It was frosty again when we got up and I recorded the fact with the aid of a spirea. My recovery from the cold has been delayed again and so I took advantageContinue reading “Another day, another walk and another cough”

Grand Old Duke of York-ish

I had a quiet but generally pleasant day today.  It started with a visit to the Archive Centre to pick up aContinue reading “Grand Old Duke of York-ish”

Not up to much

Today’s guest picture comes from visit my brother Andrew paid to Peterborough Cathedral last month. Whatever the opposite of the saying, “Every cloud has a silver lining,” is applied to us today.  After a very grey day yesterday, we woke to brilliant sunshine but unfortunately it was accompanied by a brisk and very chilly northContinue reading “Not up to much”

A piece of cake

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  He likes to find interesting places to walk and this shows the Manifold River valley with a secluded magnate’s estate, seen from Ecton Hill in the Staffordshire Peak District. We had a much brighter morning than yesterday and I got out into the garden to sieve someContinue reading “A piece of cake”

Becoming conduct

Today’s picture, a moody shot of Dubrovnik, comes from my sister Susan’s recent travels in Croatia. Dropscone appeared a little early today as he had to take his daughter Susan to the station as the first step of her journey to Abu Dhabi for the next Formula 1 motor race.   She has been all overContinue reading “Becoming conduct”
