The last post

Today’s guest picture is the final one from Venetia’s Moroccan trip.  It shows a gecko basking in the sun. It was another grey day here but slightly warmer and not actually raining as I walked to church in the morning.  Our bus driving organist had been called to do an an extra shift owing toContinue reading “The last post”

Another rest (and a change)

Today’s guest picture once again arises from my brother Andrew taking his son on vigorous hill walks to help Nick prepare for a trek in Nepal.  Ignoring Storm Jorge’s strong winds, they battled up to the top of Bunster Hill and enjoyed this splendid view of the junction of the Rivers Dove and Manifold (andContinue reading “Another rest (and a change)”

Hallelujah

Today’s guest picture comes from my friend Bruce who visited the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway which runs (rather smokey) heritage trains between Duffield and Wirksworth, in the Derbyshire Peak District.  By the way, Henry Ellison was built in 1947 so it may be heritage but it is still younger than me. Easter Sunday was another dayContinue reading “Hallelujah”

A tea tray moment

Today’s guest picture comes from a visit to Birmingham by my brother Andrew.  He took the opportunity to show us the BT Tower there on a beautiful day.. I am trying mix gentle exercise with good quality rest for my foot so I went back to lie on my bed after breakfast and was fortunateContinue reading “A tea tray moment”

A Shaw thing

Today’s guest picture is another from Venetia’s African odyssey.  She is putting a full account of the trip on her blog which can be found here. Yesterday’s rest had improved my foot a little but as there is still some way to go, I had another day where I didn’t venture out of house orContinue reading “A Shaw thing”

Getting a stitch

Today’s guest picture was taken by my sister Mary in the Japanese Garden in Holland Park, London, England a few days ago. That is a nice international medley of names to go with a delightful picture taken on a dull day. After our very brief burst of springlike weather yesterday, we were back in theContinue reading “Getting a stitch”

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.”

Blown off course

Today’s guest picture shows a fine peacock which my sister Mary saw on a walk in Holland Park. She was with my Somerset correspondent Venetia. We have had to wait a long time but we finally got a warm and pleasant day today, though just to ensure that we didn’t get too uppity, the weatherContinue reading “Blown off course”

I talked to the trees

I have recently been sent a good selection of guest pictures and will work through them.  Today’s guest picture comes from Langholm exile, Irving and shows a visitor to his garden. It was only a degree or two above freezing when we got up this morning and the wind was blowing more fiercely than yesterdayContinue reading “I talked to the trees”

A pedal and a tootle

Today’s guest picture shows one regular contributor, my brother Andrew, taken by another, my sister Mary, at the top of the Kirkstone Pass in the Lake District during their recent visit.  I am grateful to them both for brightening up many a post.  Long may they continue to do so. (Other contributions are welcome tooContinue reading “A pedal and a tootle”
