Some business and a little stretch

Today’s guest picture comes from my South African correspondent, Tom. He came across this tense stand off between a cat and a hadeda. Tom tells me that he sided with the bird and chased the cat away. We had a rather grey and windy morning here after more overnight rain. When I went out intoContinue reading “Some business and a little stretch”

First fruits (or rather, vegetables)

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. It goes to show that East Wemyss can look good even if the sun has gone in for a moment or two. And that he has a good eye for a composition, in my view. Summer continued in Langholm today. It was a degree or two coolerContinue reading “First fruits (or rather, vegetables)”

We had another cool, grey andContinue reading “A distraction”

Today’s guest picture comes from sunny East Wemyss and shows just some the lovely results of Tony and Marianne’s work in their garden.

After yesterday’s miserable day, we had a very pleasant, warm and often sunny day today. I didn’t make the most of it but I didn’t entirely waste it. The better weatherContinue reading “Apres le deluge, moi”
