A twist of fate

Today’s guest picture comes from from my Welsh correspondent Keiron. It shows a handsome bandstand in Victoria Park, Neath. With the clouds sitting heavily on top of our hills when we got up, the day started out slightly chilly and grey. This didn’t stop me walking round to the shop for essential supplies after breakfast,Continue reading “A twist of fate”

Two surprises

Feeling the need for a bit of sunshine, I have gone back a couple of days for my guest picture of the day to this delightful sunset over the roofs of Kentish Town, London. It was supplied by my sister Mary. It turned out to be another grey and windy day here today but atContinue reading “Two surprises”

Not out

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. Like my sister Mary in London, he enjoyed a good sunset in Derby yesterday evening (with added water). We didn’t enjoy anything very much here today. It was cloud right down to the ground all day from morning until night. After breakfast, Mrs Tootlepedal did manage aContinue reading “Not out”

Lace up

Today’s guest picture is another from Laura in Michigan. It shows St. Joseph Lighthouse, St. Joseph, 20 miles from where she lives. Her husband cycles there and back she tells me. It certainly looks worth visiting. We had a day without rain, wind or sun. Meteorologically it was a low scoring dull day. Mrs TootlepedalContinue reading “Lace up”

Wild goose chase

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary’s visit to Regents park last week, She was impressed by this fine floral display. I was too. We woke to a wet and miserable morning so it was fortunate that there was a testing crossword to help me waste some time. For want of anything more exciting,Continue reading “Wild goose chase”

Shifty weather

Today’s guest picture comes from my Lancashire correspondent Paul who travelled to Cumbria for a break and found a fine day to walk round Crummock Water. We had a half in half day here, half fine and the other (bigger) half rainy. The weather forecasters struggled to put their finger on the timing of theContinue reading “Shifty weather”

A matching pair

Today’s guest picture is from Paul. He was exploring the tracks round Entwistle Reservoir and spotted this handsome heron. Our excellent spell of summer weather continued here with another warm dry and mostly sunny day. We could get used to this sort of thing. I was reading the newspapers after breakfast when Mrs Tootlepedal calledContinue reading “A matching pair”

An unusual occurrence in the scone department

Today’s guest picture is another from Venetia’s visit to The Newt.  They have made good use of an old tree trunk there, though I don’t think that anyone has cycled far on the bike in the picture. Owing to being a bit dozy when I wrote last night’s post, I didn’t notice that my cameraContinue reading “An unusual occurrence in the scone department”

Icicling and bicycling

Today’s guest picture is a weather vane from the Somerset Rural Life Museum sent to me by Venetia, my Somerset correspondent.  The weather vane is a memorial to a long serving volunteer at the museum, a nice idea. The weather here was warm and sunny but not quite as warm and sunny as yesterday asContinue reading “Icicling and bicycling”
