Getting a bit above myself

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent Venetia. She has been visiting The Newt again. Although my back is a lot better today and I got a good walk in, I am rather tired as a result of not sleeping very well over the past few nights, so this blog will be a bitContinue reading “Getting a bit above myself”

Rain assisted rest

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter Annie. She got dizzy just looking up at this crane. It rained in the night and it was still raining when we got up. As a result, it was quite easy for me to have a quiet morning in. What was not so satisfactory was that I choseContinue reading “Rain assisted rest”

Quiet morning, busy afternoon

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony who is having a break with Marianne on the Isle of Skye. He couldn’t have chosen a better place or had a better day. We had what looked as though it was going to be a good day here, but it flattered to deceive and if thereContinue reading “Quiet morning, busy afternoon”

Decidedly damp

Today’s guest picture comes from Gunta in Oregon, who kindly responded to a hinted need, and shows that they have some seriously destructive forestry practices there too….but on a bigger scale than ours. The impressive photo was taken by Eric with a drone. After yesterday’s brilliant sunshine, we got wall to wall cloud today, withContinue reading “Decidedly damp”

The last day of summer?

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Gavin who is on holiday in the west of the region. He rightly thought this old church in the middle of a field near Isle of Whithorn might interest me. It was established in the early 12th century by Fergus, Lord of Galloway. It is Cruggleton Church andContinue reading “The last day of summer?”

Back to grey again

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone. He had to wait on his car journey today to let a very big delivery turn off the main road. Our brief spell of warmer weather came to an abrupt end and we went back to grey, windy and cool conditions today. As a result, I was in noContinue reading “Back to grey again”

Continuous walking

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in Fife. He came across this splendid sea buckthorn on a recent walk. We had another cool day here, with only one rain shower but with a brisk north wind blowing. I had a stroll round the garden before coffee. The dark dahlia is putting out flowersContinue reading “Continuous walking”

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”
