Not up to Downton

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary.  She saw this early show of daffodils on her walk to Kenwood House today. We were up and about quite smartly today as our church organist had arranged a choir practice in the morning as he had a day off work.   When we got to the church,Continue reading “Not up to Downton”

Cool walking

Today’s guest picture shows a real trouper from Manitoba.  Lucie sent the picture to me and tells me that on the day that she took it,  Manitoba was at -8c, and the little pansy was still going strong despite having been covered in four inches of snow and suffering several below freezing days We had anotherContinue reading “Cool walking”

A pot of gold

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary.  She has visited Paris and thought she would take a picture of the Place de la Concorde as she thinks we all could do with a little concord at this time. We had another sunny morning here, but once again the day was sprinkled with showers andContinue reading “A pot of gold”

Success this time

Today’s guest picture is another from my brother’s recent walk.  When the walkers stopped for lunch, a local resident pestered them for a share of their sandwiches and got very hoity toity when they refused. We had some welcome sunshine today but I had a busy morning  and the only part of it that wasContinue reading “Success this time”

Taking April showers a bit too far

Today’s guest picture shows the Cave of Drac on Majorca.  Dropscone visited it while on holiday on the island.  He got to listen to a concert while he was there. We had to agree with T S Eliot today.  The weather was very cruel.  If I went out on my bicycle, it rained and ifContinue reading “Taking April showers a bit too far”

A sign of welcome

Today’s guest picture comes from Gavin’s Spanish holiday where he came across this chap.  Hard to know what he is thinking. We had a lovely day here, warm with light winds.  I will say that again: We had a lovely day here, warm with light winds. There was an article in my newspaper this morningContinue reading “A sign of welcome”

An arrival and a farewell

Today’s guest picture is a glimpse of the Regent Canal at Camden, kindly sent to me by my sister Mary. We had been threatened by heavy rain and gales in the morning, courtesy of storm Dylan but once again we got off very lightly with no more than a stiff breeze and no rain atContinue reading “An arrival and a farewell”

Mirror image

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter Annie.  She is working hard in Zurich at the moment but found time to admire this trio of trees ageing differentially. Yesterday we had a sunny morning and a grey afternoon (and by the time that we went to bed, the inevitable rain had returned).  Today we hadContinue reading “Mirror image”

Sun , sea and sand

I stole today’s fine guest picture from Sandy without asking him so I hope he is not cross.  I used it because it shows the view across the Lothians towards the Forth and you can just see where we are staying in the background on the far shore. We woke to strong winds and poundingContinue reading “Sun , sea and sand”
