Mugged

Today’s guest picture comes from my Friday night orchestra, Alison, who recently visited Caerlaverock Castle with her granddaughter (and got served in the cafe). I was mugged by the weather today.  It was generally cloudy but still very warm and with no wind about, it felt very airless and close.  I noticed that as IContinue reading “Mugged”

Cold comfort

Today’s guest picture was taken at their home by Irene, my South African correspondent Tom’s wife.  Life is tough there in the autumn but someone has to live it. Tom rubbed salt in the wound by complaining about their drought when he sent me the picture and it felt especially painful when we woke upContinue reading “Cold comfort”

A distinct lack of sparkle

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary’s recent visit to Bath with my two other sisters.  They had some good weather  when they visited the Abbey. We had some thoroughly rotten weather here.  It rained on and off all day and the thick cloud made it feel like the middle of winter as farContinue reading “A distinct lack of sparkle”

Quincentenary

Today’s guest picture is another from my daughter’s working trip to Venice.  After the storm had passed, she got a better view out of her office window. We woke to a brilliantly sunny morning and I got up into my cycle clothes, ready for a pedal in the sun.  A look at the thermometer, whichContinue reading “Quincentenary”

A floral feast

Today’s ‘London Trip’ photograph is a peek into the Pullman coach which featured in yesterday’s post. Owing to a miscalculation there are far too many pictures in today’s post but having processed them all, I am too lazy to decide which ones to cut out so they are all here. For the busy reader hereContinue reading “A floral feast”

Catching up

Today’s guest picture comes from Langholm exile, Irving.  He tells me that he hasn’t seen this recent visitor to his garden in Lochmaben for some time. It was good to be back home again today after the very enjoyable visit to London but the weather didn’t seem very pleased to see me as it wasContinue reading “Catching up”

Here and there

Today’s guest picture is a view of the inside of Ely Cathedral taken by my brother Andrew. I got up pretty promptly this morning as I was due to go up to the Moorland Feeders because Sandy is still away and Mrs Tootlepedal needed the car to go to Carlisle to help sorting out theContinue reading “Here and there”

A piece of cake

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  He likes to find interesting places to walk and this shows the Manifold River valley with a secluded magnate’s estate, seen from Ecton Hill in the Staffordshire Peak District. We had a much brighter morning than yesterday and I got out into the garden to sieve someContinue reading “A piece of cake”

Not quite Marseille

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone who is on holiday with his daughter Susan in the very north of the Scottish mainland.  The weather hasn’t always been kind to them but there have been some brighter moments. The weather here couldn’t have been in greater contrast to the serene blue skies of Marseille as theContinue reading “Not quite Marseille”

With a song and a smile

Today’s guest picture shows a fine clock which Dropscone saw on his recent visit to Westerham in Kent. I usually like to go for a cycle ride on a Sunday morning while Mrs Tootlepedal goes off to sing in the church choir but there was no chance of an enjoyable pedal today with more windContinue reading “With a song and a smile”
