Better things to come

Today’s guest picture shows that Mary Jo has not been wasting her entire time in London going to concerts and seeing the sights.  She has looked at interesting things as well. We had another grey, cold and windy day today.  To be fair, it has been pretty dry recently and if it hadn’t been forContinue reading “Better things to come”

Two rewarding outings

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother, who was on one of his outings.  It shows the Old Bridge at Hereford across the Wye. We had a very pleasant day here today with lots of sunshine but with a wind just brisk enough to make me think of several reasons why going cycling might notContinue reading “Two rewarding outings”

A lot of light but not much heat

Today’s guest picture shows another fine waterfall seen by Dropscone on his holiday in Skye. We had the second bright but slightly chilly day in a row and once again, musical activity got in the way of cycling. I did get out for a morning ride but only after I had put a lamb stewContinue reading “A lot of light but not much heat”

Things to do, places to go

Todays’ guest picture shows the Monteath Mausoleum which overlooks the Lilliardsedge Golf Course where Dropscone was playing at the official opening of the Borders Golf Association season on Sunday. It was another fine day in Langholm but slightly marred by a persistent and chilly wind which made me glad that I had an excuse notContinue reading “Things to do, places to go”

End of the spell

Today’s guest picture comes from my friend Bruce, who recently met this Glasgow tram at the Crich National Tramway Museum.  It gives a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘going to university’ We had what is probably the last of our superbly sunny spring spell today.   As is all too common in life, instead of being outContinue reading “End of the spell”

A certain lack of excitement

Today’s guest picture shows a very knobbly tree spotted by my neighbour Liz when she was down near Oundle. Yesterday, the weather forecast had said that it would be fine in the morning and wet in the afternoon today but in the event, the day was wet in the morning and fine in the afternoon.Continue reading “A certain lack of excitement”

All hail (and a little snow too)

Today’s guest picture harks back to my siblings’ visit at the start of this month and shows Skelwith Force in the Lake District.  It was taken by my sister Mary. We had another day of mixed sunshine and showers here with some impressive cloudscapes.  Plans were once again slightly frustrated but the day worked outContinue reading “All hail (and a little snow too)”

Another day, anther concert

Talking of wild flowers, today’s guest picture was taken by my daughter Annie in a man made wild flower area in her local park in the middle of London. We got the cold and windy weather today, a day late after some overnight rain, but it was not as bad as it might have beenContinue reading “Another day, anther concert”

Waving not drowning

Today’s guest picture comes from Mike Tinker.  He and his wife Alison were able to take a little time off from talking with their granddaughters on their recent visit to NZ to enjoy the sights.  The picture shows the Split Apple rock in the Abel Tasman National Park After the warmth and light of yesterday,Continue reading “Waving not drowning”

Downhill

Today’s guest picture comes from Fiona, my Newcastle correspondent.  She has been forced to go and work in Malta for a while and is having to put up with surroundings like these. We had another lovely day here today, genuinely warm and with gentle winds.  I would like to have used it to go cyclingContinue reading “Downhill”
