Mrs Tootlepedal goes round in a circle

Today’s guest picture comes from Sue Bourne, who I met on my walk yesterday. She kindly sent me this striking picture of cladonia lichen which she had seen at Caulside in Canonbie. It was slightly cooler in the morning today when we got up but it was still quite humid. I felt pretty tired andContinue reading “Mrs Tootlepedal goes round in a circle”

Moving in a different circle

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan who found this very striking plant in a garden on one of her walks round her neighbourhood in London. I’d like start this post with a word of thanks to reader Derrick who spotted that three pictures were missing from yesterday’s effort and was kind enough toContinue reading “Moving in a different circle”

The calm before the storm

Today’s guest picture is the last from Venetia’s trip to Madeira and shows a local flower.  It is an echium known as ‘The Pride of Madeira’.  As you can see, it is popular with the locals. The forecast for tonight and tomorrow morning is pretty gloomy with strong winds and rain predicted.  As I writeContinue reading “The calm before the storm”

The last day of summer

Today’s guest picture comes from our neighbour Gavin who met these sea creatures while on a walking holiday in the west. According to the forecast, the weather for the rest of the week and beyond is going to be cold, wet and windy so we tried to make good use of a very pleasant dayContinue reading “The last day of summer”

Up, up and away…and then back again

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who visited Kew Gardens yesterday with my sister Susan.  They went to the water lily house. I had had a look at the weather forecast last night and as a result I had thought that an early start would be best for cycling.  These sort of plansContinue reading “Up, up and away…and then back again”

Not very flash

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter’s visit to Devon and shows the picturesque Royal Oak in Winsford, originally a 12th C farmhouse and now a hotel and restaurant. After a very dry month of May, we are suffering from a very wet June and things are not made better by persistently strong winds.  ThisContinue reading “Not very flash”

Into every life a little rain must fall

Today’s guest picture is another from my brother’s visit to Flamborough Head.  As well as seeing gannets and a puffin, he witnessed a dramatic sea rescue of a woman who had got into difficulties in the sea.  It needed a brave onlooker who plunged into the sea, a life boat and a helicopter.  Here theContinue reading “Into every life a little rain must fall”

Nothing doing

Today’s picture, sent by Gavin who is on holiday, shows a tower that houses barn owls.  I’ll have to up my bird feeder game to keep up with this sort of thing. We woke to a miserable wet and windy day.  It was a pity as it was our daughter’s last morning with us andContinue reading “Nothing doing”
