Down in the valley

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony and shows the famous flying dog of East Wemyss. (And the nifty pergola that Tony has just built.) We had a cloudy but dry day here today, warm enough to sit out in the garden for coffee, Mrs Tootlepedal in our garden with our neighbours and IContinue reading “Down in the valley”

Going green

I have had a rush of good guest pictures sent to me recently but I thought that the most appropriate one to celebrate the warmest day of the year here in Langholm today would be this one from Mary Jo in Manitoba.  It shows her weather today.  She is a bit fed up to sayContinue reading “Going green”

Mrs Tootlepedal is happy

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by my brother Andrew, but was taken by his son, my nephew Dan.  It shows the trail along the disused Nottingham Canal. We woke to another dry and sunny morning and I got up early enough to have a wander round the garden before coffee time. The daffodilsContinue reading “Mrs Tootlepedal is happy”

Getting my goat

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter Annie.  It shows some early peach blossom. We were promised wall to wall sunshine today by the forecasters with some confidence so it was disappointing to get up to a cloudy day with the standard chilly wind.  Still, it didn’t rain and I was able not only toContinue reading “Getting my goat”

Just kidding

Today’s guest picture comes from Mary Jo’s Australian trip.  Her husband used his phone to take this shot of a big flock of bats. We woke to brilliant sunshine and we were easily able to ignore a crisp temperature and a nippy wind.  Not having rain and a gale were quite enough to keep usContinue reading “Just kidding”

A breath of fresh air

Today’s guest post is another from one of fellow cyclist Paul’s visits to the Lake District.  It shows Derwent Water looking at its best. We had a day of sunshine day here, a welcome break in a succession of grey, wet and windy days which is due to resume tomorrow in spades. We made theContinue reading “A breath of fresh air”

Making preparations

Today’s guest picture comes from my friend Gavin who is in the North East of England where he caught Lindisfarne Castle glowing in the evening sunshine. We had plenty of sunshine to glow in ourselves today as it was a really pleasant summer day, sunny without being too hot and with an occasional cloud toContinue reading “Making preparations”

Short sighted

Today’s guest picture is a view of the financial heart of London seen from the verdant pastures of Greenwich Park by my sister Mary. We had yet another fine and generally sunny day today and it was pleasant but a little chilly when I rose much earlier than usual and went off to fill theContinue reading “Short sighted”
