A day full of incidents

Today’s guest picture comes from sunny East Wemyss. Our son Tony spotted a bumble bee in his garden enjoying life on the Fife coast. After quite an energetic day yesterday, I had plans for a pretty gentle day today, starting with a late breakfast and an idle time over the newspapers. Things were going splendidlyContinue reading “A day full of incidents”

A bit much

Today’s guest picture comes from Sandy. It shows the impressive hotel where he and two friends stayed while on their recent holiday in Yorkshire. We didn’t have an impressive day here today at all. It was cool and grey in the morning, and cool and wet in the afternoon. In the morning, Mrs Tootlepedal e-cycledContinue reading “A bit much”

A good walk in the woods

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. He spotted this heron enjoying the East Wemyss sunshine and sea earlier this week. I had to be up early in the morning, as I had to drive our two new electric bikes down to the bike shop at opening time. They were due to get theirContinue reading “A good walk in the woods”

Flowers, sausages and jam

Today’s guest picture comes from my walking guide, Mark. He got a closer view of the Jubilee beacon on Whita than I did. We had a calm, grey and fairly cool day here today. We cycled to church to sing in the church choir. and later on in the morning, we cycled to the Co-opContinue reading “Flowers, sausages and jam”

Making sense

Today’s guest picture gets my seal of approval. It comes from Venetia’s Highland holiday when she went to visit the Moray Firth at Burghead. Summer continued in Langholm today. In fact it got hotter, reaching 27°C in mid afternoon. Under the circumstances, I thought that I ought to reverse my usual practice and do somethingContinue reading “Making sense”

A useful outing

Today’s guest picture comes from a visit my Somerset correspondent, Venetia, made to Benter Village. She met with some fowl play while she was there. In the way that these things often happen, we got a day of pretty good weather just when I couldn’t make good use of it. My toothache was still badContinue reading “A useful outing”

A drop in the ocean

Today’s guest picture is another from Venetia’s trip to Madeira. The forecasters are having a hard time at present getting the details of the weather correct, largely I suspect because the weather is so unusual these days that their computer models are not provided with enough helpful historic data.  All the same, various forecasts wereContinue reading “A drop in the ocean”

Not welcoming

Today’s guest picture is another from my sister Mary’s Lake District visit.  She had excellent weather and made good use of it.  These  colourful boats are at the Faeryland cafe on the edge of Grasmere Our long spell of good weather has hit the buffers and the forecast for the next two weeks offers usContinue reading “Not welcoming”
