A sensible division

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew’s walk today. The sun was shining and appropriately enough, he found a farmer making hay. We had a fine day here from start to finish. It got a little too hot perhaps when the sun was high in the sky for our pale northern tastes, but weContinue reading “A sensible division”

A minor tragedy at the end of the day

Today’s guest picture shows our friend Bruce going to extreme lengths to capture a picture of a newt for the blog. In the end, the picture of him capturing the picture was better than the picture itself so it appears here and not the newt. It was warm here today, but windy and drizzly too,Continue reading “A minor tragedy at the end of the day”

Two short walks

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce who met an ugly customer when he was walking in the woods today. We were blessed with a genuine summer day here, warm from start to finish, and with plenty of sunshine to be going on with. I took advantage of the good weather to put aContinue reading “Two short walks”

A new look

Today’s guest picture comes from Venetia, my Somerset correspondent. She has taken advantage of the new latitude allowed in England to visit Lytes Cary Manor where she found a doorway of infinite promise. I have been fiddling about with the new editor and have settled on this layout at least for the time being. IContinue reading “A new look”

Blown up

Today’s guest picture was kindly sent to me from America by blog reader Gunta. Knowing that I like bridges, she sent me this picture of one of her Oregon examples. It is in Newport, Oregon crossing Yaquina Bay as one travels along the Oregon coast highway. Our spell of rather cool weather continued today. TheContinue reading “Blown up”

Service with a smile

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Alistair in Edinburgh. He spotted a visitor on his garden fence. We had some long awaited rain overnight which was very welcome. Conveniently it stopped for long enough to let us have our regular garden coffee morning, though it must be said that a light drizzle had startedContinue reading “Service with a smile”

Swift action

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in East Wemyss where the perpetual sunshine has brought his well protected vegetable plot on nicely. Having had fine weather suitable for June in May, we are back to having cool and changeable weather suitable for May in June. It was a day of occasional showers andContinue reading “Swift action”

A drop of rain

Today’s guest picture comes from Sandy. His blue tit family have fledged and left the nest box. This was the last one to go. Today saw the beginning of a change in our weather. If the forecasts are to be believed, we are going to lose about 10°C in temperature over the next day orContinue reading “A drop of rain”

A bit of a buzz

Today’s guest picture comes from one of my brother’s walks in his local area. The farmer has had to work round and old water tower to get his field planted. There was a lot of noise in the garden this morning although as far as the weather went it was sunny and peaceful day. TheseContinue reading “A bit of a buzz”

Calmer wind, busier roads

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. He sent me this picture of a fine East Wemyss fungus and then went back at my request to photograph the underside too. The wind finally calmed down here and after a misty start, the skies cleared and we had a very acceptably warm but not tooContinue reading “Calmer wind, busier roads”
