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?”

Rained off

Today’s guest picture comes from Venetia.  She got down to sea level in Madeira and brilliantly caught this Atlantic spotted dolphin in mid leap. Our spell of great weather is coming to an end but we are being let down gently before rain and gales blow in tomorrow night and we had a calm, warmContinue reading “Rained off”

Casting a long shadow

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony’s visit to the pre Christmas fun in Edinburgh.  He saw salmon being smoked. We had another frosty but bright day today with the temperature once again struggling to get above zero. Most of the morning was spent getting everything packed and ready for the departure ofContinue reading “Casting a long shadow”

Plan A

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who came upon this sprightly (spritely?) but rather unlikely fountain on one of her walks.  It makes me feel a bit nervous looking at it as it looks as though there is going to be a nasty crash in a moment. We had another chilly day todayContinue reading “Plan A”
