Logjam

Today’s guest picture comes from my camera club friend Simon. When he was on a walk last week, he found that the Fairy Loup waterfall had frozen solid. It was a fairly miserable 2 degrees Celsius when we got up today, but the day stayed dry and the temperature rose gently towards 5 degrees inContinue reading “Logjam”

A day of song

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She met a moorhen on a recent outing.. It stayed above freezing here overnight but it was far from warm as we cycled to church this morning. Only four choir members turned up, but as the hymns provided plenty of opportunity for cheerful singing, we did ourContinue reading “A day of song”

A big night out

Today’s guest picture comes from my walking friend Mark. He spotted this 8″ long adder on his walk today and is grateful that his dog Henry didn’t think it was a curly stick and try to pick it up. The chief business of the day today was going out in the evening to have aContinue reading “A big night out”

Two choirs and three bridges

Today’s guest picture comes from my files. Looking back, I don’t think that I have used this fine slightly surreal shot taken by my brother Andrew. (If I have, it deserves another outing anyway.) It was rainy when we got up, and the prospects did not look good. However, it stopped raining as soon asContinue reading “Two choirs and three bridges”

Stretching legs and fingers

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony’s Highland holiday. He has had some fine weather up there. I had quite a full day here today, though I allowed myself a gentle start. It was warm and cloudy when Dropscone came round for coffee (and scones) and Mrs Tootlepedal went off to have herContinue reading “Stretching legs and fingers”

Increasing our range

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in East Wemyss. It shows the seals who arrived the day after we left. We had a better day than the forecast suggested. It was grey, but it was calm and pleasantly warm for the time of year at 55°F/13°C after breakfast. I went up to theContinue reading “Increasing our range”

A stroll and a song

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She stopped to take in this pretty view on her way to play tennis yesterday. After some welcome rain overnight, it was still raining gently here when we got up today. There was enough rain to make the birds on the feeder look a little bedraggled andContinue reading “A stroll and a song”

A change in the weather

Today’s guest picture comes from my Canonbie friend Simon. He is working at the Belfry golf course at the moment, and sent me this pleasant view of a place where you definitely don’t want to put your golf ball. After another chilly night, we woke to another dry day here. It was cloudier than recentContinue reading “A change in the weather”

A day at the races

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter Annie. She is in Devon and enjoying some lovely spring colour. It was springlike here, with temperatures above the norm. I had a busy morning in an unspectacular way, visiting the shop and paying my account, getting money from the cash machine in the High Street, having coffeeContinue reading “A day at the races”

Jam today

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He is on a short holiday and visited Tadcaster on his way to the coast at Scarborough today. We had another sunny day here, and it didn’t take too long for the temperature to warm up enough for me to be able to go out for aContinue reading “Jam today”
