Kind of blue, but not very

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary.  She got as far as Parliament Fields on her walk today and came across this rather odd tree stump. One of the down sides of having too much time on my hands at the moment is that I tend to end up taking far too many photographsContinue reading “Kind of blue, but not very”

A delightful surprise

Today’s guest picture comes from one of my brother’s permitted walks.  He tells me that the bluebells were much more exciting in real life than they are in the picture, but that is always the case as any photographer will tell you.  That is why photo editing programs sell so well.  I think the bluebellsContinue reading “A delightful surprise”

Tea cake time

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent, Venetia.  It shows a view of her garden from an upstairs room.  She tells me that her grass is left long to encourage wildlife and it has been sown with wildflowers which she hopes will appear later in the year. After yesterday’s glorious warm weather, it rainedContinue reading “Tea cake time”

Making the most of my one expedition

Today’s guest picture comes from Matilda.  She is off school but obviously getting good art lessons at home. Here, we had another dry day with a lot of thin cloud again.  It did get slightly warmer in the afternoon and may well have got into double figures at last. We are limited in what weContinue reading “Making the most of my one expedition”

A last dry day

Today’s guest picture comes from one of our neighbour Liz’s morning walks with her dog.  They visited a lovely little waterfall on the Becks Burn.  As this involves quite a bit of scrambling, she deserves great credit for getting the shot. I started the active part of my day by cycling round to the shopContinue reading “A last dry day”

I’m going to need an ark if this goes on

Today’s guest picture comes from Mary Jo from Manitoba.  She is not in Manitoba at the moment, having left her -15 degree temperatures there for the roasting air of Queensland, Australia where she met these Boer cross doeling goats. It was so gloomy here, after another night of wind and rain, that we had toContinue reading “I’m going to need an ark if this goes on”

Clubbed

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  He saw what looks like the narrowest tall building in the world on a visit to London.  He revealed that the secret of its narrowness is that it is triangular.  He found a good angle to take his picture. It was dry but still very windy hereContinue reading “Clubbed”

Hiding

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  It is a horrible evening here so I was pleased to find his cheerful picture of life on the river at Chester last week. We were promised a visit from Storm Brendan later in the day so it was good to find a quiet, dry morning whenContinue reading “Hiding”

Testing, testing

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony.   Just to show that the sun doesn’t always shine in East Wemyss, he has sent me this lovely picture of one of his dogs on a walk in the dark. We had a chilly but not freezing day here, and as it didn’t rain, we lookedContinue reading “Testing, testing”

A drop of golden sun

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony who felt that he could prove that East Wemyss has fine trees as well as seemingly eternal sunshine. For a change, we had some sunshine here too today, but as it came hand in hand with a very gusty and nippy east wind and a drop inContinue reading “A drop of golden sun”
