Laid to rest

Today’s guest picture comes from Langholm exile Tom in South Africa. He found a layer of mist floating above the river when he went out for his morning cycle ride. We had a layer of frost on our lawn yet again when we woke up today, but once again it was followed by a beautifulContinue reading “Laid to rest”

Wind chill

Today’s guest picture from our son Tony really does show that East Wemyss has everything. After a soggy patch, we had a much better day here as promised by the forecast, with hardly a drop of rain. Unfortunately, there was a considerable amount of wind to be found if you left the shelter of theContinue reading “Wind chill”

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”

New year, same scones

Today’s guest post comes from Venetia who recently went on a music making spree where among other activities, she sang while someone played a sackbut.  What is a sackbut?  This is a piece of a sackbut: The forecast was right and we had a sunny day here.  As is often the case, with winter sunContinue reading “New year, same scones”

That’s more like it

Today’s guest picture comes from Bruce, who by coincidence passed me when I was out cycling this afternoon.  He had visited a distillery on his recent highland tour and was wondering whether he had imagined the rainbow when he came out but his wife confirmed that it really was there. There was no chance ofContinue reading “That’s more like it”

A day to get outside for a bit

Today’s guest picture is the last from Dropscone’s trip to the south.  His daughter Susan is a great motor racing fan so she took him to visit the historic Brooklands track.  There is not much of it left. Yesterday’s rain had disappeared today.  This was particularly pleasing as I had to start the day byContinue reading “A day to get outside for a bit”

A pleasant surprise

Today’s guest picture is a reminder from my sister Mary of sunny days in the South of France, captured when we visited Aix-en-Provence not so long ago. Today had two good things about it  and one of them was surprising considering that the forecast had been for rain showers all day when I last lookedContinue reading “A pleasant surprise”

A sunny mood

Today’s guest picture shows the audience at the reconstructed Globe Theatre in London.  It was taken yesterday by my sister Mary.  She enjoyed a performance of Richard II there. We enjoyed a non stop performance by the sun today.  Although it was none too warm in the morning, by the afternoon there could be noContinue reading “A sunny mood”

Out and about again

Today’s picture was sent by my daughter Annie and shows the Exeter Morris Men at Topsham in Devon. We had that very rare thing, a pleasant summer day with absolutely not a single drop of rain involved.  Mrs Tootlepedal went off to sing in he church choir while I made preparations to go out forContinue reading “Out and about again”
