Oiling the wheels

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony who was once again up early enough on his way to work to catch a fine sunrise complete with artistic lamppost. I wasn’t up early enough to see a sunrise but I was up early enough to find that the temperature was once again below zero atContinue reading “Oiling the wheels”

On the up

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She visited the Secret Garden in Regents Park on one of her recent walks. She was the only one there. After a rather cheerless day yesterday, things got better today. The forecast of sunshine and showers provided us with a good deal more sunshine than showers forContinue reading “On the up”

Low

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He has been able to extend his walking range a bit, and came to this charming bridge today. We had a low sort of day here. It was grey and windy, neither Mrs T or I were feeling at our peak and the whole morning was theContinue reading “Low”

The weather gods rub it in

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. He spotted an RAF pilot doing a handbrake turn over East Wemyss. The first business of the day was to check our new trail camera. We bought it a few months ago and have been waiting for some less cold weather to try it out. Last nightContinue reading “The weather gods rub it in”

Snow business

Today’s guest picture comes from my Glastonbury correspondent Venetia. She passed this elegant door on a recent walk. Our spell of cool, showery and windy weather continued today. Any thoughts of spring are definitely on hold. Central heating and warm clothing are back on the menu. The day only warmed up (if that is theContinue reading “Snow business”

Up and about

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone. He suggested that this stretch of road north of Eskdalemuir was one that I might want to avoid when out cycling. I will take his advice. It was another grey and gloomy day here today, but it was brightened up by the fact that Mrs Tootlepedal was able toContinue reading “Up and about”

Washing cheese rolls

Today’s guest picture comes from my friend Sharon. She took a walk up into the hills in the recent good weather and visited the Lady Florance Stone. As it is International Women’s Day today, she feels that this would be a good day to celebrate Lady Florance Cust’s daring ride straight down this steep braeContinue reading “Washing cheese rolls”

Sneaking a walk in

I got a generous response to my plea for guest pictures from two readers in the USA. This one comes from Mary Jane in New York, and shows that the New Yorkers are taking the pandemic seriously. This is the normally packed subway station at West Fourth Street. We had a cold and grey dayContinue reading “Sneaking a walk in”

Return to sender

I am short of current guest pictures so I have gone back to the files again to find a snowy dog in East Wemyss, or perhaps, a dog in snowy East Wemyss. We had another sunny and dry day here today, although it never got very warm in spite of the sun, with the temperatureContinue reading “Return to sender”

Head down

Today’s glorious guest picture comes from Tony in East Wemyss. It was taken just over a week ago and is a reminder of those sunny snowy days earlier this month which seem long past now. There was not the slightest hint of sunshine here today. It was raining when we got up and it looksContinue reading “Head down”
