Wrong way round

I am short of guest pictures so I have had to slip back earlier in the week to find this picture of golden East Wemyss from our son Tony. It was worth going back for, I thought. There was not a hint of sun in the sky when we got up here, and there wasContinue reading “Wrong way round”

A welcome break

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He visited a local park today and found a popular bridge. I checked the rain gauge after breakfast and saw that it was registering two inches of rain from the past two days. This total was added to today as we had another day of wet andContinue reading “A welcome break”

Going the other way

Today’s guest picture comes from a Welsh correspondent Keiron.  He saw this fine tree in Ystradgynlais a day or two ago and thought that I might like it as I am fond of trees. It was a sunny day here today, but as it was also freezing when we got up, we were in noContinue reading “Going the other way”

Taking a walk

Today’s guest picture is another from Mary Jo.  This one is from Manitoba and shows a tree that took to autumn in stages. We were greeted by frosty weather when we got up today, but once again it was dry so we weren’t complaining too much.  It was too cold for cycling and I wasContinue reading “Taking a walk”

Chalk and cheese

Today’s guest picture from Irving, taken earlier on,  shows the Black Esk reservoir, the source of our drinking water these days. After yesterday’s crisp and sunny weather, we could hardly have had a more different day today.  It was soggy, grey, cloudy and cold… …but there were compensations. It was a winter wonderland.  Or atContinue reading “Chalk and cheese”

Pleasant distractions

Today’s guest picture shows an elegant Egyptian goose  spotted by my sister Mary in Regents’s Park yesterday. The temperature stayed comfortably above freezing and, for the most part, the rain stayed away too so it should have been a good day for cycling.  A nippy north wind made me very ambivalent about the delights ofContinue reading “Pleasant distractions”

Taking a brake

Today’s guest picture shows the charming Old Bell Hotel in Derby.  It was taken by my sister Mary during her recent visit there. We had a calm day today and as we are forecast to have several days in a row of high winds and heavy rain, it could be correctly described as the calmContinue reading “Taking a brake”

A view from the bridge

Today’s picture, which comes from Dropscone, shows the damage caused by the heavy rains of not long ago to one of the paths on Langholm’s golf course.  They are hoping that there is no more heavy rain soon. We had our fifth day without rain in a row and although the car windscreen was coveredContinue reading “A view from the bridge”
