Not up to Downton

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary.  She saw this early show of daffodils on her walk to Kenwood House today. We were up and about quite smartly today as our church organist had arranged a choir practice in the morning as he had a day off work.   When we got to the church,Continue reading “Not up to Downton”

Meeting but not greeting

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who visited Stourhead with her friend Venetia.  As she knows that I like a bridge, she sent me this picturesque example. I am still quite tired as having a very youthful visitor is not straightforward.  Getting down with the kids is fine. It’s getting up again thatContinue reading “Meeting but not greeting”

Going the other way

Today’s guest picture comes from a Welsh correspondent Keiron.  He saw this fine tree in Ystradgynlais a day or two ago and thought that I might like it as I am fond of trees. It was a sunny day here today, but as it was also freezing when we got up, we were in noContinue reading “Going the other way”

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”

Conversations

The guest picture of the day is a curious sculpture of a bicycle on a  railway line which Bruce encountered on his recent Annan walk. We had a splendidly sunny day today but from a cycling point of view, it wasn’t as useful as it might have been as it was also very cold forContinue reading “Conversations”

With a song and a smile

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce who was exploring the back ways of our neighbouring town of Annan when he came upon this attractive bridge. Perceptive readers may have noticed that I was feeling a little gloomy when I sat down to write last night’s post (thank you for the kind wishes expressedContinue reading “With a song and a smile”

Not a lot

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by one of my ex teaching colleagues, Ada.  She has been on a walking holiday in Tenerife, which looks from her picture to have been an excellent choice. I must apologise to regular readers who might justifiably expect a little variety every now and again in my postsContinue reading “Not a lot”

Where was that sunshine?

Today’s guest picture is another from Tony’s series of perfect weather in East Wemyss. We were promised good weather by noon and as it was still a bit chilly in the morning, I was more than usually happy to see Dropscone arrive (with traditional Friday treacle scones) for a cup of coffee or two.  IContinue reading “Where was that sunshine?”
