A baker’s dozen

Today’s guest picture comes from Eike from the Bergisches Land, a low mountain range region within the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. He is the son of long time reader Zyriacus. Knowing my fondness for fungi, he has kindly sent me some local examples from his area. The weather this week has been better thanContinue reading “A baker’s dozen”

Two flocks

Today’s guest picture comes from Langholm exile Tom in South Africa. He tells me that this is the South African national flower, the Protea. We had notice of a change in the weather today as the north wind died down to a whisper. By the end of the day, it was coming from the south,Continue reading “Two flocks”

One step back

Today’s guest picture, forwarded to me by Mike Tinker and taken by his daughter Liz, shows a delightful scene with cormorants at Linlithgow. I was a bit taken aback last night. After feeling that my back was definitely on the mend through the day, I got a bit of shock when I tried to lieContinue reading “One step back”

Rain assisted rest

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter Annie. She got dizzy just looking up at this crane. It rained in the night and it was still raining when we got up. As a result, it was quite easy for me to have a quiet morning in. What was not so satisfactory was that I choseContinue reading “Rain assisted rest”

A bridge too far

Today’s guest picture is another from Tony’s Highland holiday. One of his dogs answered the question posed by a bench. We had another dry day here, cool when the sun was in, but pleasant enough for us to have coffee in the garden with Liz and Margaret, and actually warm when the sun came out.Continue reading “A bridge too far”

Out and back

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony’s Highland holiday. He was looking across at Skye from the mainland when he took this shot. We were offered a fine morning with light winds so the sensible thing to do would be for me to get going as soon after breakfast as possible if IContinue reading “Out and back”

The last day of summer?

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Gavin who is on holiday in the west of the region. He rightly thought this old church in the middle of a field near Isle of Whithorn might interest me. It was established in the early 12th century by Fergus, Lord of Galloway. It is Cruggleton Church andContinue reading “The last day of summer?”

Farewell

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who enjoyed a socially distanced meeting with fellow students of Spanish across the River Derwent from Darley Abbey’s West Mill this morning. They enjoyed the Spanish style weather a lot. We had a better day for weather here but a sadder day for for us as AnnieContinue reading “Farewell”

Two rays of sunshine

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony taken in sunny East Wemyss. It was a rather grey morning here with occasional drizzle so it was very lucky that a visit brightened it up a lot. Our son Tony stopped taking pictures in East Wemyss for long enough to come down to Langholm withContinue reading “Two rays of sunshine”

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”
