Two and a half now

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Alistair who got more than he bargained for in his cauliflower. I know that you are supposed to eat up your greens but this was a step too far. We had a day here with nothing to complain about as far as the weather went. It was warmContinue reading “Two and a half now”

Another fine day

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew in Derby. He spotted a local heron having a day on the tiles. We could hardly believe our luck here when we had a second dry day in succession. We made good use of it. Mrs Tootlepedal drove up to the Langholm Moor, where she and otherContinue reading “Another fine day”

A moist morning

Today’s guest picture comes from ever sunny East Wemyss, where our son Tony found a forest of stones on the beach and added his own effort (complete with flower on top). It was far from sunny here after a second night with rain and the hills were covered with mist when we got up. ThereContinue reading “A moist morning”

Success this time

Today’s guest picture is another from my brother’s recent walk.  When the walkers stopped for lunch, a local resident pestered them for a share of their sandwiches and got very hoity toity when they refused. We had some welcome sunshine today but I had a busy morning  and the only part of it that wasContinue reading “Success this time”

Charging about

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter Annie.  She took our new granddaughter, Evelyn Rose to the allotment in her ‘travel system’ or push chair as it used to be called.  Annie hasn’t been able to work on the allotment recently for obvious reasons but she was pleased to find her dahlias thriving on benignContinue reading “Charging about”

Out smarted

Today’s guest picture comes from Bruce who is in the north east of Scotland.  He had a warm and sunny day yesterday when he visited Haddo House, a Scottish stately home located near Tarves in Aberdeenshire. We had a warm but far from sunny morning here as the rain made its presence felt. I wasContinue reading “Out smarted”

Far from the maddening crowd

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  He has been on a tour of the north east with my sisters Mary and Susan.  They returned home by train today and he drove back to Derby by way of Fountains Abbey. Mrs Tootlepedal and I also came home today, leaving Evelyn Rose with some sadnessContinue reading “Far from the maddening crowd”

A slow day

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan’s old friend Stephen who has been spending a week with his wife in Port Douglas, in Far North Queensland. He tells me that it is mid-winter there, and so the temperature is down to a chilly 25-26 degrees.  He sent me this suitably wintry illustration. It is summerContinue reading “A slow day”

Power fencing

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony’s Highland holiday.  He has sent me a lot of good pictures but this one gets my seal of approval. We had another fine day and I had hoped to get some useful cycling in, but a sore back when I got up put paid to anyContinue reading “Power fencing”

Safely home

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who said that he was quite surprised to find any group of people pulling together in these divided times. We left the kind hospitality of my sisters behind after breakfast and set off to catch an underground train to Euston Station.  It was still the busy periodContinue reading “Safely home”
