Finally a tootle but no pedal

Today’s guest picture comes from Tony in East Wemyss. It shows what estate agents call a “doer upper”. We had another beautiful day here, with dawn to dusk sunshine and a cooling breeze to keep things tolerable.

The shock of the rain,Continue reading “More sun, more breeze”
