Good judgement

Today’s guest picture comes from Mary Jo, my Manitoba correspondent. She has been house sitting in Hawaii with a friend and enjoying the mellow temperatures. For some reason they didn’t go swimming. We had a definite spring day here today, though it was rather deficient when it came to sunshine. The main thing was thatContinue reading “Good judgement”

Farewell to our visitors

Today’s guest picture is another of my brother Andrew’s shots from his trip along the Thames yesterday. He has a lot of things to do just now, and he says that his head is spinning a lot faster than the London Eye was going round. Annie cooked some cheese and marmite pinwheels yesterday, and theyContinue reading “Farewell to our visitors”

A misty pedal

Today’s guest picture is another from my brother Andrew who is staying in London to help my sister Mary for a while. Our other sister Caroline joined them today. Andrew took this picture of Hawley Lock at Camden on a sunny but chilly day in the south. The temperature crept up a degree or twoContinue reading “A misty pedal”

A surprise

Just to show that it still often sunny in East Wemyss, our son Tony sent us this picture taken a couple of days ago. We expected it to be cold this morning, but all the same we got quite a shock when we looked out of the window when we got up. The snow didn’tContinue reading “A surprise”

A shady friend

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He found some Egyptian geese in the grounds of Nottingham University today. He thought that they looked as though they were pining for a bit of Egyptian warmth on a day of biting wind. We had a dry morning here but it was quite chilly too atContinue reading “A shady friend”

Six bridges!

Today’s guest picture is another stolen from contributions sent to me for the last camera club meeting. This is a view that Stan took when he was up a hill in the Ewes Valley. It shows just how flat and narrow the valley bottom is. Our spell of very mixed weather continued today, and itContinue reading “Six bridges!”

Second sight

I have stolen today’s guest picture from some which Big Deev sent me to show at the Camera Club meeting on the theme of winter. The day started well in three ways: firstly, it wasn’t raining, secondly the replacement lens for the Archive Group microfiche reader arrived in the post, and thirdly, when Nancy andContinue reading “Second sight”

Changeable

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony who kindly forwarded this picture taken by his partner Marianne from her place of work this morning. Some workplaces have better views than others. I had to be up and about quite sharply today. The new lens for the Archive Group microfiche reader had arrived and IContinue reading “Changeable”

A much better use of some sunshine

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Alistair who has visited his local park. It shows that Mr Grumpy’s relatives are branching out in Edinburgh. After some heavy overnight rain, it was a relief to wake up to a dull but dry morning today, with the temperature well above freezing. In these dark days atContinue reading “A much better use of some sunshine”

A surprisingly dry wet walk

Today’s guest picture brings a little sunshine to another grey day here. My brother Andrew enjoyed the setting sun picking out the fine new pedestrian bridge across the A52 in Derby yesterday. Dropscone brightened up a rainy morning when he arrived (bearing scones) to share a cup of coffee or two with me and MrsContinue reading “A surprisingly dry wet walk”
