A toddle and a tootle

Today’s guest picture comes from sunny East Wemyss. Our son Tony wishes to point that they get the moon there too. We got plenty of sunshine here today, but as the temperature was a measly -5°C at breakfast time, there was no inclination to go outside and do some sunbathing. Mrs Tootlepedal went off toContinue reading “A toddle and a tootle”

A busy day for Mrs Tootlepedal.

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent, Venetia. She found the tidal River Axe at a very low ebb when she visited it recently. Temperatures fell just below freezing for several hours overnight here and it was still around zero when we had our breakfast. As a result, there will be no dahlia picturesContinue reading “A busy day for Mrs Tootlepedal.”

Lace up

Today’s guest picture is another from Laura in Michigan. It shows St. Joseph Lighthouse, St. Joseph, 20 miles from where she lives. Her husband cycles there and back she tells me. It certainly looks worth visiting. We had a day without rain, wind or sun. Meteorologically it was a low scoring dull day. Mrs TootlepedalContinue reading “Lace up”

It was sunny here, the wind had dropped, the cattle had been taken off Meikleholm Hill, and it was a perfect day for a walk up a hill.  So IContinue reading “Up and about”

Putting my boots on

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  He had a moment to wander around in Borrowash this morning and was surprised to find a giraffe in the woods.  You can see it too if you look carefully.  It didn’t move a lot, he tells me. Last night I had wondered whether we would wakeContinue reading “Putting my boots on”

Benchmarked

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by my friend Bruce who seems to have popped up in Spain.   He had an excursion today to the monastery at Montserrat and found a statue there of interest.  He claims that its eyes followed him about wherever he went.  Look closely at the triptych which he tookContinue reading “Benchmarked”

A view from the bridge

Today’s guest picture is another from my brother Andrew in Spain and shows a mountain chapel. The forecast was for a cloudy but dry day with frost at first and icy patches at first.  Apart from the fact that there was no frost and it was sunny all day, they got it pretty well rightContinue reading “A view from the bridge”
