A touch of late colour

Today’s guest picture come from our sonTony in East Wemyss. Not only do they have apparently perpetual sunshine there, but they also have free apples for passers by. It is a demi-paradise. We had another cool and cloudy morning here and, typically, we had just got settled down to coffee in the garden when theContinue reading “A touch of late colour”

Dripping wet

Today’s guest picture, an antidote to our miserable day here, is a view towards Keswick from Manesty taken by Lake District enthusiast Paul, a couple of years ago. It was a welcome sight on a grey day. The number of aeroplane trails in the sky is a marked contrast to present circumstances. We had aContinue reading “Dripping wet”

Hot work

Today’s guest picture is another from Bruce’s visit to the woods yesterday. He came across this ancient tree, affectionately known as the King of the Kernigal. It was another hot day here, and a rather muggy one too making anything more than gentle work seem quite hard. It was an easy crossword day so IContinue reading “Hot work”

A little bit of everything

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony’s Highland jaunt.  They went on a boat trip and saw eagles fishing.  He took this picture with his phone. We had a better day today.  I managed to get up and stay up and Mrs Tootlepedal’s cold was much improved. She had another very busy day inContinue reading “A little bit of everything”

Rattling around

Today’s guest picture comes from Bruce’s trip to Sweden and shows the Stockholm’s Gröna Lund amusement park as seen from the water.  With my head for heights, there would be little amusement there for me. We had another fine and sunny day today with light winds, just perfect for cycling.  The day had been providedContinue reading “Rattling around”

All clear

Today’s guest picture shows an art installation by Christo in Hyde Park in London.  My sister Mary saw it and tells me that it is made up of 7,506 barrels.  I can see that it is really big but whether it is good art, I cannot tell. Our new spell of fine weather continued todayContinue reading “All clear”

Up hill and down dale

Today’s guest picture is a second helping of vegetables from our daughter’s allotment.  She is obviously doing a good job there.  Mrs Tootlepedal is very envious of the beetroot. 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”

A welcome forecasting error

Today’s guest picture shows a very nice bridge that my sister Mary met in the Lake District last week.  You can see Lancrigg Hotel in the background.  She tells me that Wordsworth used to sit and write poetry there. After our brief burst of unseasonably warm and sunny weather, we were promised a day of continualContinue reading “A welcome forecasting error”

A purposeful day

Today’s guest picture is another from my brother’s visit to Flamborough Head last month.  He was hoping to see many puffins but they were few and far between.  He did see this one standing rather implausibly on a very steep cliff face. I had several plans for the day and most of them required someContinue reading “A purposeful day”

A sonata sort of day

Today’s guest picture shows Queen Mary’s garden in Regents Park in London.  My sister Mary was passing through last week. My day was divided into three movements, Adagio, Moderato and Lento. The morning was very adagio indeed and the casual observer might have had quite a lot of difficulty in telling whether I was asleepContinue reading “A sonata sort of day”
