Cooked up

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony in East Wemyss. It was a little bit warmer here today than yesterday, but as there was a chilly wind blowing, it didn’t feel much warmer. When Mrs Tootlepedal went off to combine coffee with buy out business, I was very happy, after a visit toContinue reading “Cooked up”

Up and down and round and round

Today’s guest picture comes from a walk in Warwickshire which my brother Andrew took last week. I have been trying to work out what is going on at the end of the field but have failed. After yesterday’s gloomy weather, we woke to brilliant sunshine today. For once, I didn’t waste a lot of timeContinue reading “Up and down and round and round”

Head in the clouds

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce. He saw a hawthorn well supplied with haws on a recent walk. This was quite surprising because most of the hawthorns that I pass have few if any haws after being caught by the late frost. It was quite hard to see anything here today as itContinue reading “Head in the clouds”

Walk on

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  He was walking his dogs when he came upon this artful construction on the beach. Our spell of sunny weather continued today, together with a gusty and cool wind from the east.  It got a lot warmer in the afternoon though. The day started with the crosswordContinue reading “Walk on”

Up and about

Today’s guest picture is another from Dropscone’s Northumbrian holiday.  It shows his daughter and granddaughter on their way to visit the castle on Holy island. It was sunny here, the wind had dropped, the cattle had been taken off Meikleholm Hill, and it was a perfect day for a walk up a hill.  So IContinue reading “Up and about”

A pot of gold

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary.  She has visited Paris and thought she would take a picture of the Place de la Concorde as she thinks we all could do with a little concord at this time. We had another sunny morning here, but once again the day was sprinkled with showers andContinue reading “A pot of gold”

A step too far

Today’s guest picture comes from our neighbour Liz, who recently visited the Eden Project in Cornwall and came across this giant insect. We had another lovely day here and the flowers were looking very cheerful as a result, whether hanging over the edge of the dam… ..or popping up in a flower bed. New tulipsContinue reading “A step too far”

Learning my lesson

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone who was at the Roxburghe Golf course when he came across a reminder of the strong winds that battered us last month. There was a brisk wind here today but not as brisk as the one that had knocked that tree to bits. I had time for a quickContinue reading “Learning my lesson”

Uphill work

Today’s guest picture is another from my brother’s visit to Wetherby. This post has double the usual amount of pictures for reasons that will become apparent for those with the time and energy to slog through them.  If you make an excuse and leave now, I will quite understand. Our spell of good weather continuesContinue reading “Uphill work”

Where have all the flowers gone?

I do have a guest picture today as my sister Mary sent me this shot of a herd of art loving geese rushing to see Christo’s work in Hyde Park. While we were having our last spell of good weather a few weeks ago in late spring after a miserable few months, nobody dared toContinue reading “Where have all the flowers gone?”
