A fond farewell

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce. He visited the standing stones at Callanish on the Isle of Lewis, and wants us to know that the sun wasn’t shining everywhere in Britain yesterday. The sun certainly was shining here again today, and once again, we felt it sensible to take in the outdoors inContinue reading “A fond farewell”

A sunny day

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. It shows East Wemyss at its best in my view. We had a lovely summer day here today, in marked contrast to the weather yesterday. Naturally, since it was a fine day for gardening, Mrs Tootlepedal found herself called to go to take minutes at a meeting.Continue reading “A sunny day”

Faith rewarded

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce. He was amused by the placing of this bollard, and wondered whether it was there for drivers or sailors. We had another sociable morning today, with both Sandy and Margaret coming round for coffee and conversation. When they had gone their separate ways, we got out intoContinue reading “Faith rewarded”

Levelling up

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan. She took this peaceful canal scene today just to show the rest of her family that she had been out and about. The forecast was right, and it was a bit cooler today than the past two days. However, it was only a bit cooler, and asContinue reading “Levelling up”

A day at the races

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter Annie. She is in Devon and enjoying some lovely spring colour. It was springlike here, with temperatures above the norm. I had a busy morning in an unspectacular way, visiting the shop and paying my account, getting money from the cash machine in the High Street, having coffeeContinue reading “A day at the races”

Busy doing nothing

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. He was up at the crack of dawn today with his dogs to see a typical East Wemyss day in the making. On the other side of the country, we had a different picture when we got up (several hours later than Tony) with mist covered hillsContinue reading “Busy doing nothing”

Staying in

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. His walking group followed a path through the middle of a field today. It looks odd but it must be an old right of way. They are not trampling crops. We found ourselves a little tired here today after the departure of Matilda and her parents yesterday.Continue reading “Staying in”

Winding down

Today’s guest picture is another of Laura’s from St Joseph, Michigan. We got up to some heavy showers and strong winds here today. It wasn’t the best weather for the last day of Clare, Alistair and Matilda’s stay with us, but we made the best of it. Mrs Tootlepedal had a busy morning taking theContinue reading “Winding down”

Round and round and up and down

Today we do not have a guest picture of the day but a whole gallery of guest pictures from a guest photographer instead. Matilda borrowed my camera and took a few shots of flowers that took her fancy. I have cropped one or two of her shots but otherwise this is just how she tookContinue reading “Round and round and up and down”

Totally lacking lustre

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. He spotted a small tortoiseshell butterfly today. We had a definitely gloomy day here today, with either a hint of rain or the real thing always on hand. As the forecast was for floods and thunderstorms, we got off very lightly with just the occasional shower. ItContinue reading “Totally lacking lustre”
