Small but select

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent Venetia.  She is visiting the Netherlands for singing purposes, and saw this fine selection of bridges crossing the river Waal at Nijmegen through the tinted windows of her coach.  The Waal is a distributary* of the Rhine. We had a fine day here today.  Indeed, we areContinue reading “Small but select”

Hiding

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan.  She came across this very colourful boundary to a restaurant’s outside seating area and knowing that I like fuchsias, sent me the picture. It was another very sunny day here but not quite as warm as the last two days, presaging a slight change in the weatherContinue reading “Hiding”

A rewarding day

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew’s walk up Blencathra last week.  He got this splendid view of the Lake District as he climbed. We were promised a chilly day with a brisk north wind and we got it.  Luckily we got some very bright and cheerful sunshine for most of the day soContinue reading “A rewarding day”

Beside the sea

Today’s guest picture comes from my friend Bruce who was checking the time by the floral clock in Princes Street gardens in Edinburgh yesterday. After quite a hard day yesterday, I thought that I ought to take it easy today but another miscalculation led to me taking over 170 pictures so I apologise in advanceContinue reading “Beside the sea”

The Falkirk Wheel

I am posting three times today to catch up with our outing of yesterday so I apologise for taxing the patience of readers beyond the usual.  The reason for the triple post is that we took our daughter to see two very interesting sites in central Scotland as well as visiting her two brothers whileContinue reading “The Falkirk Wheel”

Two interesting outings

Today’s guest picture comes from a visit to Huntingdon by my brother Andrew. We were just considering our options for entertaining our daughter after breakfast when we were visited by our next door neighbour Liz.  She had found something intriguing on a path in the park and brought it in to show us.  I lookedContinue reading “Two interesting outings”

A bit of everything

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by my daughter Annie, who has been in Devon.  It just goes to show, she says, that they have gates down there too. Since it was both  a pleasant day and a Sunday, I took the speedy bike out for a spin up the main road to theContinue reading “A bit of everything”

Light work

Today’s guest picture is from the camera of Mrs Tootlepedal and shows Matilda in her grandly named ‘personal transport system’. It was another quite chilly, grey and windy morning but my dental discomforts were a thing of the past and Dropscone and I set off on our own personal transport systems for the morning runContinue reading “Light work”

Brotherly love

In response to a flood of (at least two) requests, today’s picture is a set of Dropscone’s treacle scones beside the ingredients.  The recipe is below. Recipe: 1 and a half cups of self raising flour. Pinch of salt if required Half cup of milk (your choice, full or skimmed) 2 spoons of treacle, infuseContinue reading “Brotherly love”

More signs of spring

Today’s picture is another from Bruce’s visit to York.  It shows the Minster looming through the almost leafless trees. I don’t know whether it was the 30 mile an hour winds or the threat of rain that made me think twice about cycling but which ever it was, it was effective and I retired backContinue reading “More signs of spring”
