Suppé after tea

Today’s guest picture comes from my Sydney correspondent Stephen.  As he came out of the Sydney Opera House after a performance of Carmen yesterday, he saw this striking tribute to the many volunteer firemen who have been battling the blazes in Australia. After a restless night disturbed by strong wind and heavy rain,  we gotContinue reading “Suppé after tea”

Not getting the picture

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter Annie who has been baking bread. I had a day full of action but very little of it was in front of the camera – it was not a case of “Lights, camera, action!” It was damp and drizzly after breakfast and there were still occasional mournful criesContinue reading “Not getting the picture”

Getting in a jam

Today’s striking guest picture comes from my brother who describes it as ‘dusky’.  I think  he must have been in London yesterday evening. We had summer indoors today and winter outside.  They were brought to us by courtesy of the jasmine family. In the garden there are now several clumps of promising snowdrops… …but weContinue reading “Getting in a jam”

Up and down

Today’s guest picture shows more of the endlessly sunny weather that Dropscone is having to put up with in Malta. In fact we too had to put up with some sunny weather here today.  This came as a bit of a shock but the kindly authorities, worried in case we became too excited, took itContinue reading “Up and down”

A little blue sky thinking

There are two guest pictures today as they show a large eucalyptus tree which was felled by the wind in my daughter’s garden in London last night.  The tree fell into their neighbours garden but luckily seems to have missed doing any damage to buildings. Exciting times! It was more dreary than exciting here asContinue reading “A little blue sky thinking”

Ma made the marmalade

Today’s guest picture is another from my sister Mary’s recent visit to the Lake District.  It shows Grasmere. Much to my surprise, today was not a bad day for cycling at all and Dropscone appeared on the dot and we set off round the traditional morning run.  It is not my favourite route because itContinue reading “Ma made the marmalade”

Hard going

Today’s picture shows our visiting wood pigeon pulling itself up to its full height. It wasn’t freezing and it wasn’t raining this morning and the wind was less than gale force. All in all, it was a pretty good day and I naturally got the slow bike out after breakfast and set out on aContinue reading “Hard going”

One of those days

Today’s picture is another of London park life from my sister Mary. After the wonder of yesterday’s sunny weather, we were back to a more normal routine today.  It was quite a pleasant morning with light winds and no rain but sadly, the temperature was below freezing and ruled out cycling.  The temperature inched upContinue reading “One of those days”
