Inflated expectations

Today’s guest picture comes from Mrs Tootlepedal. She cycled up to the tree nursery today and took a picture just to show that she had got there. The seedlings are in winter mode now. We had a much better day of weather here today, with no clouds sitting on the town. It didn’t go soContinue reading “Inflated expectations”

A satisfying day

Today’s guest picture comes from my walking friend Mark. He took this delightful ‘light and shade’ shot across the valley from Warbla yesterday while he was having a late afternoon stroll with his wife, Leila. We had another very pleasant day here today as far as the weather went, and the events of the dayContinue reading “A satisfying day”

Taking the biscuit

Today’s guest picture comes from Mike Tinker. He and Alison are just back from a golden wedding holiday in Oban. Mike spotted these colourful fungi on one of their outings. We had a better day of weather than we expected here today, with light winds and no rain. This was lucky as we were dueContinue reading “Taking the biscuit”

A different routine

Today’s guest picture from our son Tony shows that the sun shines all day in East Wemyss. In contrast to his usual early dawn shots, this was taken in the late afternoon yesterday. I got organised and did some Archive work after breakfast and left the crossword for later. We had another dry and coolContinue reading “A different routine”

Flying off the handle

Today’s guest picture is another fine bridge from my brother Andrew. He tells me that this is an 18th Century road bridge in Nottingham. It was decidedly autumnal here today, with a chill in the air when we got up. Both Sandy and Margaret remarked on the need for warm clothing when they arrived atContinue reading “Flying off the handle”

Fame at last.

Today’s guest picture comes from my walking friend Mark. It shows a curious old gentleman who went with him on a walk yesterday. We were up and away promptly after breakfast when we cycled up to join the volunteers at the Tarras Valley Nature Reserve tree nursery. The last few trays of seedlings needed toContinue reading “Fame at last.”

Moor and garden

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in East Wemyss. He doesn’t just look at the sunrise when he is out. He sees seals beside the sea as well. We had a fine, warm and calm day here today, with the bonus of a sunny afternoon. I managed to fit in a bit ofContinue reading “Moor and garden”

Up and down and round and round

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in East Wemyss. He was up so early yesterday morning that he beat the sun to it. There was no sign of sun here this morning, and it was another grey day as we drove up to Cronksbank to help out at the Tarras Valley Nature ReserveContinue reading “Up and down and round and round”

Settling back down

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He wishes to point out that his local park has adopted a no-mow policy too. As this combines ecological correctness with money saving, I expect that quite a lot of other local councils will be doing this. We had another very hot day here, but there wereContinue reading “Settling back down”

Growing

Today’s guest picture is another fine dawn dog shot from sunny East Wemyss. Our son Tony gets up very early every working day. If I had got up early, I would have found a misty morning here, but the mist had cleared and it was another sunny day by the time that I emerged. MrsContinue reading “Growing”
