Two enjoyable outings

Today’s guest picture goes to show that if we see one butterfly in Langholm, our son Tony sees two in sunny East Wemyss. We had another dry day here today, sunny at first but cloudy later. I took advantage of the early sun to go out after breakfast and look at the garden. The rosesContinue reading “Two enjoyable outings”

Sunny Sunday

Today’s guest picture was sent to Mrs Tootlepedal who passed it on to me.  It shows her brother and his wife (and several family members) roughing it on their holiday on Tresco in the isles of Scilly. We can’t run to palm trees in Langholm but we did have another lovely summer day in LangholmContinue reading “Sunny Sunday”

Rain delayed

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by Anne, wife of my cello playing friend Mike and shows the tall tower of Elgin cathedral…. …and if you look very carefully, you can see Mike and a grandchild peering over the very top of the tower. I had a kind of slow motion day today inContinue reading “Rain delayed”

Tired but happy

Today’s guest picture comes from Tom in South Africa.  He thought that we might need a touch of snow to cool us down. I have had a long day and I am pretty tired so although I am back at my computer, this post will be another brief one as I need an early night.Continue reading “Tired but happy”

Tootlepedals to the rescue

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew’s visit to Fleetwood.  The port for the town is on the south side of the river Wyre estuary and can be reached by the ferry which can be seen in his picture. It was the longest day today and the weather was fine and frequently sunny soContinue reading “Tootlepedals to the rescue”

Plain sailing

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony, who took this view of the old and the new Forth road bridges.  The new one, in the background, opens at the end of this month. Thanks to our visitors we had a untypical breakfast today as the vote went for bacon and egg baps insteadContinue reading “Plain sailing”

Au reservoir

As we are going to visit her in London tomorrow, my sister Mary has sent me a guest picture of the day to remind me what a big city looks like. She was passing the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square.. More poppies have arrived in our garden, mostly opium poppies but with one new ShirleyContinue reading “Au reservoir”

Back in the saddle

Today’s guest picture is another from my sister Mary’s holiday in the Lake District last month.  She describes it as, “Another compulsory bridge.” The weather improved a good deal today and I was able to walk up to the High Street  without any rainwear on to take my turn dispensing information to tourists at ourContinue reading “Back in the saddle”

Chasing Mrs Tootlepedal

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone’s oldest son, Dennis and shows a fine aeroplane which he saw at his place of work. It was a bit different from the private jets he usually sees there. It was a calm, dry morning and after breakfast, Mrs Tootlepedal felt that she had done enough gardening for theContinue reading “Chasing Mrs Tootlepedal”

End of an era

Today’s guest picture is another from Mike Tinker’s daughter Liz’s holiday on the west coast of Scotland.  Yesterday she saw this little fellow just outside her front door. For the first time since we came to Langholm (41 years ago almost to the day), I had to send Mrs Tootlepedal out today to buy twoContinue reading “End of an era”
