Up and down and round and round

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in East Wemyss. He was up so early yesterday morning that he beat the sun to it. There was no sign of sun here this morning, and it was another grey day as we drove up to Cronksbank to help out at the Tarras Valley Nature ReserveContinue reading “Up and down and round and round”

A fond farewell

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce. He visited the standing stones at Callanish on the Isle of Lewis, and wants us to know that the sun wasn’t shining everywhere in Britain yesterday. The sun certainly was shining here again today, and once again, we felt it sensible to take in the outdoors inContinue reading “A fond farewell”

All my own work

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He and my two oldest sisters are on an East Anglian jaunt, and were in Constable country today. We had a quiet and dry day today, which got pretty sunny and warm by the afternoon (70°F, 21°C). It took some time to warm up though, and itContinue reading “All my own work”

Rain cycle

Today’s guest picture comes from my walking guide Mark. I had temporarily mislaid my cap, and he sent me this picture to show that I was still wearing it near the end of our walk on Saturday. After two sunny days over the weekend, the new week started with a grey and intermittently rainy day.Continue reading “Rain cycle”

On the trail of the lonesome pine (again)

Today’s guest picture is another of my sister Mary’s delightful studies of Regents Park in London. She goes there to play tennis and always looks about on her way. We woke to rather grey and windy weather with a forecast of some rain to come in the middle of the day. We were in noContinue reading “On the trail of the lonesome pine (again)”

Wilting a bit

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He found it a little chilly on Skegness pier this evening on a visit to the east coast of England. It wasn’t at all chilly here as we had another very warm day, with the thermometer showing 27°C (80°F) in the afternoon. It is still well overContinue reading “Wilting a bit”

An unexpected visitor

Today’s guest picture shows Tony’s dogs enjoying some of that eternal sunshine in East Wemyss. After our mini heatwave, we returned to more sensible temperatures here today. If the sun had shone, it would have been perfect, but it turned out to be cloudy all day and we had to have a jumper on forContinue reading “An unexpected visitor”

Actual cycling

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony and shows that herons in East Wemyss take a lofty view of life. We had mixed weather here today with occasional rain, quite a bit of wind and some sunshine. If you were lucky, outdoor activities and the rain did not coincide. I was lucky. I wentContinue reading “Actual cycling”

Calmer wind, busier roads

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. He sent me this picture of a fine East Wemyss fungus and then went back at my request to photograph the underside too. The wind finally calmed down here and after a misty start, the skies cleared and we had a very acceptably warm but not tooContinue reading “Calmer wind, busier roads”

A tootlepedal day with added scones

Today’s guest picture  comes from my Somerset correspondent Venetia.  She is wandering abroad again and has ended up with her head in the clouds in Madeira. Our spell of good weather continues and although it means quite a bit of time spent watering in the garden, it is very welcome after two cold and rainy Continue reading “A tootlepedal day with added scones”
