Short sighted

Today’s guest picture is a view of the financial heart of London seen from the verdant pastures of Greenwich Park by my sister Mary. We had yet another fine and generally sunny day today and it was pleasant but a little chilly when I rose much earlier than usual and went off to fill theContinue reading “Short sighted”

A drop of golden sun at last

Today’s guest picture, sent to me by her mother, shows the world’s greatest baby enjoying a very short nap the other day. As is customary on a Friday. Mrs Tootlepedal went off to Edinburgh to visit the world’s greatest baby and I was left to my own devices.  There was a little early morning rainContinue reading “A drop of golden sun at last”

Walkin and Talkin

Today’s guest picture, sent by my daughter Annie, makes me think that she might have been taking part in the Ride London event today along with one or two other cyclists. We thought of having a pedal ourselves today as the weather was very pleasant but the combination of my dodgy joints and a veryContinue reading “Walkin and Talkin”

Pedal mania

Today’s guest picture comes from my daughter.  She has worked out how to email pictures directly from her phone and sent me this nice waterfall from her recent Devon holiday. The forecast was for a sunny day today and the forecast was right.  It seemed like a good day for cycling so after breakfast IContinue reading “Pedal mania”

The real Bew castle

Today’s picture is another from the camera of Langholm exile Tom Elliot.  It is an eye catching bougainvillea. It was another grey day when we woke up and as we had planned an outing with Jean, we were a bit worried about a forecast of rain to come.  I stared out of the window…. …whileContinue reading “The real Bew castle”

A false start

Today’s picture comes from my sister Susan, who has been in Paris.  She was, as they say, where the balloon went up. Dropscone was off at one of his elderly gentlemen’s golf tournaments so I had a leisurely breakfast which morphed almost seamlessly into coffee and biscuits with a short break for garden strolling inContinue reading “A false start”

Too late

Today’s picture, sent by Gavin, shows a pair of Dolphins in Victoria the capital of British Columbia on Vancouver Island.  Very smart work with the clippers here. As if to reproach us for planning to go away, the day dawned with brilliant blue skies and a radiant sun.  As if to remind us of whyContinue reading “Too late”

The calm after the storm

Today’s picture is a squirrel from Regent’s Park in London. It is from my sister Mary. We woke to a glorious blue sky and wall to wall sunshine. I rose, ate my breakfast, greeted Dropscone who had arrived for the morning pedal and then went back inside to put on my wet weather gear toContinue reading “The calm after the storm”
