Very quiet

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce who is over in the east. He visited Chillingham castle and found a display of McLaren cars. I would have loved cars like this when I was young but now they just look difficult to get in to and impossible to get out of. We had aContinue reading “Very quiet”

Afternoon tea in the garden

The guest picture of the day comes from our son Tony. It proves that there are many shades of green in East Wemyss as well as in Langholm. Today’s post starts with an anomaly, a picture taken yesterday. As it was taken at a quarter to midnight, I hope that that explains why it didn’tContinue reading “Afternoon tea in the garden”

A quiet day

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary, who found a wonderful show of colour on a recent visit to the park. We are still a bit short of colour in our garden, which is no surprise after another chilly night. At least we had a good day to follow the cold night. In spiteContinue reading “A quiet day”

Magical geometry

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Caroline. She took in a plant to protect it from the winter and it has grown so well indoors that she can’t get it back out into the garden again, and it is blushing unseen in the utility room. Nothing much would have wanted to be going outContinue reading “Magical geometry”

In a jam

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He noticed two lambs playing leapfrog on his walk today. After a foul night of wind and rain, we were provided with a foul day of wind and rain to follow it. On occasions, the rain did ease off to a drizzle but it was still aContinue reading “In a jam”

Another slab, another stroll

Today’s guest picture comes from Canada where Mary Jo had two visitors. She tells me that they were huge, noisy, and regarded traffic (including a semi on the avenue at the end of the street) with total disdain. We had a day with plusses and minuses as far as the weather went. It was generallyContinue reading “Another slab, another stroll”

Washing cheese rolls

Today’s guest picture comes from my friend Sharon. She took a walk up into the hills in the recent good weather and visited the Lady Florance Stone. As it is International Women’s Day today, she feels that this would be a good day to celebrate Lady Florance Cust’s daring ride straight down this steep braeContinue reading “Washing cheese rolls”

Missing a shot

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. It shows the sea near East Wemyss in uncharacteristically turbulent mood. It is well known that into every life a little rain must fall, but in our case it was a little snow today. Once again it was half hearted snow, settling on the hills above theContinue reading “Missing a shot”

A whey we went

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Alistair in Edinburgh. He found a heron standing on the ice when he visited his local park this morning. For once we didn’t have an icy start to the day here, with the temperature staying between 2 and 4 degrees C all day. There was ice about though.Continue reading “A whey we went”

95 percent

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She passed this striking corner building on one of her recent walks. The ninety five percent of today’s title refers to the average humidity of the day here. It was pervasively damp, and if it wasn’t raining, it was humid enough to make you believe that itContinue reading “95 percent”
