More but less

Today’s guest picture comes from another of Venetia’s visits to local gardens. She came across this fine gate at the walled garden of Cannington. The temperature duly went down as forecast and we found ourselves with a 10°C (50°F) day. It felt cooler thanks to a north easterly wind and a pervasive dampness in theContinue reading “More but less”

Over the hill (but not far away)

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who recently walked along the Erewash canal on a sunny day.

I set aboutContinue reading “Over the hill (but not far away)”

It was quite warm thoughContinue reading “Blowing in the wind”

The sky in her picture looks a little threatening though and she had to shelter from a heavy rain shower before getting home. We had the rain overnight here andContinue reading “It turned out nice”
