Socialising and cycling

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She took this picture of the River Itchen in Winchester, where she is on a short visit with my two other sisters. We had a grey but dry day here today. Being slightly chilly and not very windy, it was not a good drying day and theContinue reading “Socialising and cycling”

A change in the weather

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent, Venetia. She had a furry rather than a feathered friend at her bird feeder yesterday. We read a news item today saying that this September had been one of the warmest Septembers on record. It doesn’t look as though October is going to break any heat records,Continue reading “A change in the weather”

Back home

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He has been on a short holiday where among other things, he enjoyed the sight of this church perched on the very edge of Rutland Water. As we made our way back from Marlow to Langholm, we had a journey of many parts today. We started byContinue reading “Back home”

Busy doing nothing

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. He was up at the crack of dawn today with his dogs to see a typical East Wemyss day in the making. On the other side of the country, we had a different picture when we got up (several hours later than Tony) with mist covered hillsContinue reading “Busy doing nothing”

Shepherd’s warning

Today’s guest picture is another from Venetia’s visits to local attractions in Somerset. This time she visited Ninesprings, at Yeovil Country Park and found another tempting entrance. There is an old saying, “Red sky at night, shepherd’s delight, red sky in the morning shepherd’s warning.” It has some validity based on the prevailing south westContinue reading “Shepherd’s warning”

Jam today

Today’s guest picture is another showing my missed opportunity yesterday. As well as Tessa, my friend Gavin found a moment to rush up the hill, and got there in the nick of time before the mist burnt off. He was pleased that he went. We got up to a lovely sunny morning today and notContinue reading “Jam today”

Plan B (and C, D and E)

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone. He only has to go out of his front door to see this gorgeous autumn colour in his own garden. We had another fairly calm but definitely grey day today, with occasional rain and fairly reasonable temperatures for the time of year. We had a busy social morning andContinue reading “Plan B (and C, D and E)”

A route revised

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce. He was out on a walk when he met three donkeys who were perhaps hoping for a snack The north wind was still blowing, though only gently, so we had another cool day. There was an occasional glimpse of sunshine, but there was also a rather surprisingContinue reading “A route revised”

Going to churches

Today’s guest picture comes from Natasha, Marianne’s daughter. It speaks for itself. We had a dry day, mostly sunny, fairly warm and very welcome. After my customary leisurely start to the day, I left Mrs Tootlepedal to have a sunny cup of coffee with Margaret in the garden, and went off to make the mostContinue reading “Going to churches”

Gentleman in waiting

Today’s stunning guest picture was sent to me my friend and fellow church choir member, Anne. It was taken by her son, David, on the Moray Firth. He didn’t realise at the time that there are two animals hidden in the picture. We had another fine day here. This was very lucky as Mrs TootlepedalContinue reading “Gentleman in waiting”
