Top down or Langholm under a cloud

Today’s guest picture is from our son Tony in East Wemyss. He found a delightful beach in nearby Kirkcaldy when out walking his dogs. Our spell of dry weather under a ridge of high pressure is coming to an end, and it gave us a taste of things to come with ten tenths cloud fromContinue reading “Top down or Langholm under a cloud”

Head in the clouds

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. It shows that while we may have sunrises in Langholm, he can match them with sunsets in Derby. If the sun did indeed rise over Langholm this morning, we didn’t see it. We were covered in mist. After breakfast, I decided to drive up to the WhiteContinue reading “Head in the clouds”

More jam today

Today’s guest picture, and it was very welcome on a gloomy day in Langholm, came from my sister Mary who walked along the canal in London in lovely sunshine today. It didn’t rain all day here but it might as well have done because it was impossible to say when the rain was going toContinue reading “More jam today”

Rising above it

Today’s guest picture is another from Simon’s Saturday walk in the northern English fells. His route took him to High Cup Nick, a well named and famous viewpoint. There was no possibilities of any views in Langholm when we got up this morning, as the town was wreathed in mist. It was calm though, andContinue reading “Rising above it”

A route revised

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce. He was out on a walk when he met three donkeys who were perhaps hoping for a snack The north wind was still blowing, though only gently, so we had another cool day. There was an occasional glimpse of sunshine, but there was also a rather surprisingContinue reading “A route revised”

Getting a bit above myself

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent Venetia. She has been visiting The Newt again. Although my back is a lot better today and I got a good walk in, I am rather tired as a result of not sleeping very well over the past few nights, so this blog will be a bitContinue reading “Getting a bit above myself”

Back to grey again

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone. He had to wait on his car journey today to let a very big delivery turn off the main road. Our brief spell of warmer weather came to an abrupt end and we went back to grey, windy and cool conditions today. As a result, I was in noContinue reading “Back to grey again”

Progress

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who has been enjoying her walks up to Kenwood recently. She had this fine view of the grounds on Wednesday. We had a cool, grey morning here today, definitely feeling like autumn a lot more than like late summer. It stayed dry though, but with the temperatureContinue reading “Progress”

Farewell

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who enjoyed a socially distanced meeting with fellow students of Spanish across the River Derwent from Darley Abbey’s West Mill this morning. They enjoyed the Spanish style weather a lot. We had a better day for weather here but a sadder day for for us as AnnieContinue reading “Farewell”

A little spice on a dull day

Today’s guest picture comes from Venetia and shows a delightful door at Babbs Farm, near Highbridge, Somerset, the object of her latest National Gardens Scheme visit. As far as any day with Evie in the house can be dull, this was a dull day. This was not because of Evie, of course, but because ofContinue reading “A little spice on a dull day”
