Hey, ho, the wind and the rain

Today’s guest picture comes from my camera club friend Simon who found a fine flower for me to enjoy. The forecasters had predicted rain overnight and all through the day, and unfortunately they got it quite right. I had a very unsettled night with the rain beating down and my legs complaining about the milesContinue reading “Hey, ho, the wind and the rain”

Service with a smile

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Alistair in Edinburgh. He spotted a visitor on his garden fence. We had some long awaited rain overnight which was very welcome. Conveniently it stopped for long enough to let us have our regular garden coffee morning, though it must be said that a light drizzle had startedContinue reading “Service with a smile”

The tenors get a tune

Today’s guest picture is another from Dropscone’s Amsterdam trip.  He took a tour of the canals in the city while he was there and saw the the Muziektheater, which is called now The National Opera and Ballet. We are beginning to have only a distant memory of the sun and it was no surprise toContinue reading “The tenors get a tune”

Worse

Today’s guest picture comes from Mrs Tootlepedal who used her new phone to take this handsome group portrait of her brother, sister-in-law, niece and great niece whom she was visiting while on her jaunt to the south.  As she had visited her mother too, she had seen four generations in one day. Unlike yesterday, whenContinue reading “Worse”

Rain stopped play

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce who was more adventurous than me and went for an outing in the rain.  His reward was a picture of the Byreburn in full flow over the Fairy Loup. (I have put a little video that he took at the bottom of this post for those whoContinue reading “Rain stopped play”

Action and pictures

Today’s guest picture is another from a splendid set that my brother sent me after his visit to Shugborough Hall near Stafford a week ago. We awoke to find it was still raining after a night of rain and a check on the scientific rain gauge showed two centimetres had fallen.  This is a fairContinue reading “Action and pictures”

More summer weather

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by my friend Bruce.  As the rain poured down today, it was good to be reminded of our sunny Common Riding which this enthusiast observed from beside the Castleholm. It rained so heavily during the night that it woke us both up.  Luckily it didn’t rain that heavilyContinue reading “More summer weather”

Down in the dumps

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who visited the south coast of England  yesterday and saw the not quite so famous white cliffs of Brighton. After the excitements and activity of yesterday, today was very restrained. The only noticeable activity of the morning was eating some iced buns which Dropscone kindly bought withContinue reading “Down in the dumps”
