Not a dull moment

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew’s tour of Norfolk. He took this fine picture at Blickling House yesterday. After the rather gloomy weather here yesterday, we got a much better day today, less windy in the morning and much sunnier. The day was made sunnier still when first Dropscone and then Margaret arrivedContinue reading “Not a dull moment”

Talking not walking

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. He was up early enough a couple of days ago to see this sun rise in East Wemyss. After the excitements of yesterday, we had a quiet day at home today. It was not dull though. In the morning, we were visited by Tom Elliot, my SouthContinue reading “Talking not walking”

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”

Over the hills and quite far away

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent, Venetia. She had heard of the bottlebrush tree before but she was quite surprised to see this bottle tree on a garden visit. Our day started with a check on the trail camera. There had been overnight hedgehog sightings. We were very happy. Then we had aContinue reading “Over the hills and quite far away”

A wet walk

Today’s guest picture comes from Mary Jo. She was flying to have breakfast (as one does in Canada) and this is a shot of the wonderful meanders of the Assiniboine River, taken from somewhere NE of Virden. I had a somewhat meandering sort of morning myself. It included a crossword, coffee and proof reading aContinue reading “A wet walk”

Singing here and there

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He found a cow looking rather disapprovingly at his son’s dog when they were out for a walk. We had a busy day today, and there was little time for taking photographs. In the morning we attended church to sing in the choir on the occasion ofContinue reading “Singing here and there”

Into every life a little rain must fall

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. On his way from East Wemyss to West Wemyss today, he took in this charming view. We woke up here to find that a little rain had indeed fallen into our life, but sadly it was just a very little rain. It had dampened the surface ofContinue reading “Into every life a little rain must fall”

Intolerable

Today’s guest picture comes from Mrs Tootlepedal. She put our trail camera out last night and captured a welcome visitor. I had every intention of going for a bike ride today, but I was defeated by the thermometer. By the time that Sandy and Margaret had come round for coffee, the temperature had already risenContinue reading “Intolerable”

Raising the temperature

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He took this picture of the station at Stamford last week, while he was waiting to meet my two eldest sisters who were joining him for an outing. It was not busy. The forecast rise in temperature duly took place today (after another very light shower ofContinue reading “Raising the temperature”

Going far

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in East Wemyss. The seals enjoy the sunshine there too. The first picture in today’s post only just sneaked in as it was taken just after midnight last night. I missed the full moon a day or two ago. The skies were still clear when we wokeContinue reading “Going far”
