Another eponymous day

Today’s guest picture comes from Venetia.  These are just a few of a large flock of white storks which she saw flying over her in Morocco. As it was Friday, Dropscone came round for coffee but in a big turn up for the books, he brought no treacle scones with him.  Plain scones were theContinue reading “Another eponymous day”

Paying attention

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  He visited Kedlestone Hall in Derbyshire on one of the better recent days. Mrs Tootlepedal went off to yet another meeting after breakfast and inspired by her vigour, I managed to get myself into my cycling gear and out of the house before coffee time.  Admittedly, IContinue reading “Paying attention”

Doddering

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary.  She visited Wells with her friend, my Somerset corespondent Venetia, and took this reflective portrait of the cathedral from the bishop’s garden. We had a colder, windier day than yesterday, but as it was drier than forecast and the sun even came out briefly once or twice,Continue reading “Doddering”

Serious rain at last

Today’s guest picture of her allotment was sent to me by our daughter Annie, and shows that she takes after her mother…and then some.  She did get some help. The day started with lovely sunshine and steadily got greyer until it was raining in Edinburgh  when we got there.   We were not complaining as theContinue reading “Serious rain at last”

Full of beans

Today’s guest picture comes from one of my Canadian correspondents, Lucie.  She has been visiting relatives in the UK and when she passed through Edinburgh on her way north, she stopped off to check out the view from the castle. We had a warm and sunny day today and with lighter winds, it felt likeContinue reading “Full of beans”

Just a little bit more

Today’s guest post comes from our son Tony who has been having wonderful weather lately on the shores of the Firth of Forth. Our day started brightly…. …after another frosty morning but as the day went on, the clouds came over. Dropscone dropped in for coffee, bringing treacle scones with him.  He is very excitedContinue reading “Just a little bit more”

The flowers that bloom in the spring, tra la!

Today’s guest picture shows a child friendly door that took Mary Jo’s fancy on her visit to Copenhagen.  Clever marketing. We could hardly believe it when we got another warm and pleasant day today.  It made cycling to church to sing in the choir a treat and gave us every incentive to get out inContinue reading “The flowers that bloom in the spring, tra la!”

A good start and a good finish. The less said about the middle, the better.

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone’s sister, Elizabeth, who took advantage of a recent sunny day to climb up a hill and look down on the town. Our warm spell continued but in the absence of any sunshine. I had a busy morning, starting with a trip to the producers’ market to stock up onContinue reading “A good start and a good finish. The less said about the middle, the better.”

Progression of a sort

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by Liz, a professional gardener.  It shows what can be done in a miserable spring if you have the right facilities, in this case a polytunnel,  and green fingers.  Liz is Mike Tinker’s daughter and he kindly forwarded the picture to me. No one could accuse our weatherContinue reading “Progression of a sort”

Taking the long view

Today’s guest picture, sent to me by Irving, shows the Black Esk reservoir which provides us with our drinking water.  I have often meant to visit it but never have so perhaps this will spur me into action. We had another frosty morning heralding another beautifully calm and sunny day and we tried to makeContinue reading “Taking the long view”
