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”

Walking the walk

Today’s guest picture comes from my Welsh cycling correspondent Keiron. He spotted this serene family of swans making their way up the canal. We had hardly a blink of that nice sunshine here today as it was another cloudy and cool day, but the rain in general held off until the late afternoon and eveningContinue reading “Walking the walk”

Mysterious things

Today’s guest picture comes from our neighbours Libbie and Irving. It shows their view of the rambler rose on the fence between us. Irving says he modestly takes the credit when visitors compliment him on his lovely rose. There was rain during the night and the soil in the garden seemed very wet when weContinue reading “Mysterious things”

A rewarding walk.

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She encountered an unusual elephant in Regent’s Park while meeting a friend. I was a bit surprised to hear some heavy rain beating down on the house when I woke up, but by the time that I had actually got up for breakfast, the rain had stoppedContinue reading “A rewarding walk.”

A mournful day

Today’s guest picture goes to show that you should never judge by appearances. My brother Andrew was offered a choice between a vegan sausage roll and this good looking scone. He naturally chose the scone but found when he became more closely acquainted with it, that it was very old and dry. The vegan sausageContinue reading “A mournful day”

Relative calm after the storm

Today’s guest picture comes from Mary Jo, and shows her own rain gauge in Manitoba. It is all the more impressive because the five inches it recorded all fell in an hour and a half. Then they got another two inches overnight making seven inches in eight hours. That’s what I call real rain. TheContinue reading “Relative calm after the storm”

Down came the rain

Today’s guest picture is a fine Welsh tree spotted by my fine welsh correspondent Keiron. Finally we got some steady rain here overnight, and although it wasn’t a downpour, there was enough rain to leave the ground looking definitely damp when we got up in the morning. It was deemed to be too cold andContinue reading “Down came the rain”

Cleaning up

Today’s guest post comes from our son Alistair. He found a welcome visitor in his garden and took this splendid picture of it. We had two unusual things to contend with when we got up. It had rained overnight and there was a greenfinch and a goldfinch on the feeder. I was able to copeContinue reading “Cleaning up”

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”

Plan B

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone.  The golf course is closed at the moment so he is going for walks and he passed one of my favourite trees  a day or two ago.  He thinks that it is a bit like us, just hanging on by the skin of its teeth. It was colder todayContinue reading “Plan B”
