Party pooper

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  He came across this very colourful field on one of his permitted walks.  He can’t say what it is that the farmer is growing. My day started with a Zoom visit to Australia. My sister Susan’s friend Stephen has contributed guest pictures to the blog and asContinue reading “Party pooper”

Walk on

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  He was walking his dogs when he came upon this artful construction on the beach. Our spell of sunny weather continued today, together with a gusty and cool wind from the east.  It got a lot warmer in the afternoon though. The day started with the crosswordContinue reading “Walk on”

Out of sync

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew’s walk today, and shows a sign of the times, a golf course with no golfers on it. Our slightly unsettling spell of dry and sunny weather continued.  The forecast says it may not rain until net Tuesday but, more importantly for me, it also says that theContinue reading “Out of sync”

Hallelujah

Today’s guest picture comes from my friend Bruce who visited the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway which runs (rather smokey) heritage trains between Duffield and Wirksworth, in the Derbyshire Peak District.  By the way, Henry Ellison was built in 1947 so it may be heritage but it is still younger than me. Easter Sunday was another dayContinue reading “Hallelujah”

Taking April showers a bit too far

Today’s guest picture shows the Cave of Drac on Majorca.  Dropscone visited it while on holiday on the island.  He got to listen to a concert while he was there. We had to agree with T S Eliot today.  The weather was very cruel.  If I went out on my bicycle, it rained and ifContinue reading “Taking April showers a bit too far”

Watching other people work

Today’s guest picture shows some of our local wild goats on the Langholm Moor.  Bruce spotted them and kindly sent me the picture. After a good night’s sleep, I was up and about today and ready for action. Fortunately there was plenty of action to watch without having to do anything more energetic than strollContinue reading “Watching other people work”

Back on the bike

Today’s guest picture is of a showy bed of tulips in Regents Park, London where my daughter Annie was taking a walk. We are almost beginning to forget the five months of gloomy weather that have just passed as the present dry and sunny spell continues, bringing joy to the hearts of the townspeople ofContinue reading “Back on the bike”

The first and probably the last day of summer.

Today’s picture shows a sunlit Ewes valley. The day was like this from the very start.  Dropscone told me later that he had done 25 miles on the bike before breakfast.  I had a blood test so I couldn’t start out until that had been done.  At about ten o’clock, I went round the morningContinue reading “The first and probably the last day of summer.”

Literally staying at home

Today’s picture shows a wild eyed jackdaw enjoying a fat ball feast. After our wet welcome home yesterday, the weather relented and we had a largely sunny day today.  However, the strong wind kept things feeling pretty cool and when we looked at the garden, there had not been as much new developments while weContinue reading “Literally staying at home”
