Roman in the gloaming

Today’s guest picture is another from Venetia’s Moroccan trip.  You might find it hard to believe that this delightfully shady restaurant garden is in Morocco but it is. The first picture in today’s post is a bit of a cheat as it was taken yesterday when I went to bed.  Looking out of the window,Continue reading “Roman in the gloaming”

Into the woods

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent, Venetia.  She felt that as I had been a bit lacking of flying birds recently, she should help me out.  She visited RSPB West Sedgmoor on Saturday and saw a great many teal. My first picture of the day was taken very early in the morning indeed. Continue reading “Into the woods”

I’ll follow the sun

Today’s guest picture comes from a recent visit to Liverpool by my brother Andrew.  He found it in a colourful mood. After some very grey days, we had a much more colourful day here today.  The sun shone and the wind dropped and it looked liked a good day to go outside. As usual, IContinue reading “I’ll follow the sun”

There was a ray of sunshine

Today’s guest picture comes from Sharon’s trip to Orkney.  Her shot shows the famous Skara Brae site. It is a brief post with few photographs today as the morning was perfectly miserable with nothing but a few soggy dahlias to look at from the shelter of the front door… …and buckets of that thin but penetratingContinue reading “There was a ray of sunshine”

Clubbing together

Today’s guest picture is another from Tony’s seaside views.  This one was taken on his phone. Today’s post may be a little more incoherent than usual because I had a restless night.  The forecast had been for cloudy skies so I went to bed without making any preparations to view the much talked about supermoon. Continue reading “Clubbing together”

Help from afar

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother who found this slightly unlikely windmill.  It is not producing flour but dispensing curried sausages in the market square in Nottingham.  Well I never, what next? We had a chilly day here but it was dry which was a relief after some overnight rain.  My leg rehabilitation isContinue reading “Help from afar”

Not very adventurous

Today’s guest picture shows an elegant little lighthouse at Fleetwood on the Irish Sea coast.  My brother Andrew was visiting the town. After several weeks of good weather, it was very unfortunate that for the weekend of the Muckeltoon Adventure Festival, a feast of mountain biking and trail running today, we should have got aContinue reading “Not very adventurous”

White out

Today’s guest picture is a reminder of summer.  It shows two shots of a dragonfly spotted by Mike Tinker on holiday in Wales. Although some of the snow had melted away from yesterday, there was enough about to make some icy spots on our local roads and to keep our hills still looking pretty white.Continue reading “White out”

I spoke too soon

Today’s guest picture is another from Mary Jo’s London visit.  She has discovered that she really likes Regent’s Park and I don’t blame her.  It is a lovely park. I spoke too soon about our dry spell of weather because when we woke up this morning, it was raining heavily and it continued to rainContinue reading “I spoke too soon”

In training

Today’s guest pictures were sent to me by Langholm exile Tom and show that the South Africans are just as good at spoiling beautiful scenery with power lines as we are. We enjoyed the last day of our good weather today and I had a busy but uneventful time. It started when Sandy came roundContinue reading “In training”
