Winding up again

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce. He spotted a splendidly rickety bridge on trip up the Megdale valley. I think that I might use the one in the background to cross the stream. Our spell of dry weather continued and I could find no trace of rain in the rain gauge for theContinue reading “Winding up again”

A welcome surprise after a pedal

Today’s guest picture comes from our neighbour Liz, who is down in the south at the moment. She visited East Carlton Park near Corby and came across this fine specimen. It made me think of Christmas for some reason. After several windy days, we had a much calmer day here today with the promise ofContinue reading “A welcome surprise after a pedal”

Head in the clouds

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce. He saw a hawthorn well supplied with haws on a recent walk. This was quite surprising because most of the hawthorns that I pass have few if any haws after being caught by the late frost. It was quite hard to see anything here today as itContinue reading “Head in the clouds”

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”

Continuous walking

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in Fife. He came across this splendid sea buckthorn on a recent walk. We had another cool day here, with only one rain shower but with a brisk north wind blowing. I had a stroll round the garden before coffee. The dark dahlia is putting out flowersContinue reading “Continuous walking”

No turbine movement

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She took a train for a short distance this morning and then walked back along the canal. We had a dry and calm day today. It wasn’t warm but it wasn’t cold either, so we were able to have our morning coffee meeting on the lawn inContinue reading “No turbine movement”

It turned out nice

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She took advantage of the cooler weather today to visit Regent’s Park to enjoy the rose garden. The sky in her picture looks a little threatening though and she had to shelter from a heavy rain shower before getting home. We had the rain overnight here andContinue reading “It turned out nice”

A non standard day

Today’s guest picture comes from Natasha, the daughter of our son Tony’s partner Marianne. Natasha was looking across the Forth at Newhaven Harbour on the Edinburgh shore. It was just as sunny today on her side as it always seems to be on Tony’s side. We had a better day today than our recent coolContinue reading “A non standard day”

A cutting edge

Today’s guest picture(s) comes from our friend Gavin and shows the differing skills of his son Fraser and daughter-in-law Leslie who live in America. Fraser very neatly laid bricks on the ground while Leslie prefers life on the tiles. The month ended with a day that was neither good nor bad, neither hot not cold,Continue reading “A cutting edge”

Two short walks

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce who met an ugly customer when he was walking in the woods today. We were blessed with a genuine summer day here, warm from start to finish, and with plenty of sunshine to be going on with. I took advantage of the good weather to put aContinue reading “Two short walks”
