A climb and a tootle

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He saw some very beautiful water lilies today. Owing to one thing and another, I have started writing this post rather late in the evening, so it will be a rushed job, with writing kept to the minimum. Rather to our surprise, we had good weather allContinue reading “A climb and a tootle”

A quicker walk

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony’s Highland holiday. We had a rather cool day here, but curiously, once the temperature had struggled up to 15°C (58°C), it stayed there for the rest of the day, and it is still about the same now as I type these words in the evening. It wasContinue reading “A quicker walk”

The longest day

Today’s guest picture shows that Tony’s dogs are enjoying their Highland holiday too. Since today was the longest day of the year, I thought it appropriate to try to achieve the longest bike ride of the year while I had plenty of daylight. The forecast was for a warm, cloudy day with a light wind.Continue reading “The longest day”

Goodbye, hello

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He was on a father’s day walk with his boys today when he met these two interesting customers. We had a fine summer day here, with plenty of sun, warm temperatures and not too much wind. It is a pity that almost perfect cycling days often seemContinue reading “Goodbye, hello”

A lovely day

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew and shows a suitably loyal bit of post box yarn bombing in Derby on the occasion of the royal jubilee. Just in time for the start of the meteorological summer, we got a warm and fine day. It was windier than we would have liked so IContinue reading “A lovely day”

An excellent tootle

Today’s guest picture is a reminder of the sort of sunrise that you can see in East Wemyss if you are up and about at 5 A.M. Our son Tony was. Owing to a busy afternoon and evening, I am starting this post very late in the day, so the text may be a bitContinue reading “An excellent tootle”

A windy walk

Today’s guest picture come from my cello playing friend Mike. He found this poplar hawk moth in his shed today. We woke up to a chilly, wet and windy day. The rain gave up after a while, and I was able to cycle round to the corner shop for supplies before Margaret joined us forContinue reading “A windy walk”

Soup and biscuits

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by Dropscone because he knows that I like bridges. It comes from his son Benjamin who is on holiday somewhere vaguely familiar. We had some heavy showers overnight, and we woke to a grey and often rainy morning. I found a dry moment to scoot round to theContinue reading “Soup and biscuits”

Another wet day

For the guest picture on a very dull day, I have turned once again to our son Tony and a sunny day in East Wemyss to cheer us up. This was taken a day or two ago. Sadly, Tony himself is not so cheerful. He and Marianne were due to come here tomorrow to seeContinue reading “Another wet day”

Fade to grey again

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce who went for a walk with his wife round Alemoor reservoir near Hawick recently. He wondered whether they couldn’t have put up a few more warning notices if they had really tried. After yesterday’s sunshine, we were back to cold, grey and windy today, dry at leastContinue reading “Fade to grey again”
