A good companion

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who found a sunny day for a walk by the canal at St Pancras today. Every inch has been built on round there now. After another night of rain (two inches in the rain gauge since Saturday), we woke to another grey morning. The run of gloomyContinue reading “A good companion”

Cooked up

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony in East Wemyss. It was a little bit warmer here today than yesterday, but as there was a chilly wind blowing, it didn’t feel much warmer.

I didn’t have very much time to look at our veg today as it seemed to start to rain as soon as I went out intoContinue reading “Up hill and down dale”

The forecast shows a lot of rain showers coming our way over the next weekContinue reading “Another song cycle day”
