Down in the dumps

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who visited the south coast of England  yesterday and saw the not quite so famous white cliffs of Brighton. After the excitements and activity of yesterday, today was very restrained. The only noticeable activity of the morning was eating some iced buns which Dropscone kindly bought withContinue reading “Down in the dumps”

More good service

Today’s guest picture shows another of the modes of transport that Dropscone encountered on his holiday in Germany.  I don’t think that he travelled on it though. Our very welcome spell of good weather continued today, helping to dry the garden out after the recent rains. I didn’t have time to get out before coffeeContinue reading “More good service”

Action

Today’s guest picture is another from Dropscone’s continental excursion and shows a fine bridge over the Schlei at Kappeln in Schleswig-Flensburg.  Dropscone points out that it is just the same as Tower Bridge in London….but without the towers of course. Our spell of warm weather continued today and it was up to a  most unseasonalContinue reading “Action”

A tootle but no pedal

Today’s guest picture shows Matilda contemplating a possible friend whom she met at Jupiter Artland near Edinburgh. It was raining again when we got up this morning but by the time that I set for the High Street to visit the Archive Centre and then go to take my turn offering information to visitors, theContinue reading “A tootle but no pedal”

King of the castle

Today’s guest picture is the town hall of Ripon.  My brother, who was visiting,  was much taken with the inscription. We had a day of pleasantly cool but sunny weather today and if I hadn’t had quite a strenuous pedal yesterday, I would have been out on my bike.  As it was, I spent aContinue reading “King of the castle”

Another day of sitting about

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother, who found some gorgeous heather when he was walking on the Cleveland Way.  Langholmites looking for heather for their heather besoms will be very jealous. It was a cool, grey morning with light winds so perfect for an early start and some long distance cycling.  Encouraged by someContinue reading “Another day of sitting about”

The real thing

Today’s guest picture, sent to me by my Newcastle correspondent Fiona,  shows a selection of Newcastle bridges. We had another misty morning here followed by a glorious afternoon.   We will be praying for rain before we know where we are if this goes on. I started the day by putting a week of the newspaperContinue reading “The real thing”

All change

Today’s guest picture shows a quiet corner of Regent’s Park in London and was taken by my sister Mary who was probably coming back from playing tennis in the Park. We had another morning of strong winds and violent showers so it was lucky that I got up late and had an entertaining crossword toContinue reading “All change”

Not a lot

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by Mary Jo from Manitoba in a probably vain attempt to stop me complaining about the weather.  Her thermometer is in the shade on the North side of her house, and the picture taken around supper time.  If that was the case here, I would have to move. Continue reading “Not a lot”

Getting on

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by Tom, my South Africa correspondent.  Having seen some proteas far away in New Zealand in a recent guest picture, he has sent me a picture of some proteas from South Africa itself (with other local flowers). Once I had worked out that it wasn’t Wednesday. a notionContinue reading “Getting on”
