Invasion

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He found himself on the shores of the Humber estuary today and took this fine pictures of the famous bridge just to please me. We were up and about quite smartly today as we were volunteering for the Tarras Valley Nature Reserve again. We didn’t have toContinue reading “Invasion”

Making a fool of myself

Today’s guest picture comes from David, one of my walking companions of yesterday. He took this delightful view of our house as we had our cup of tea under the walnut tree at the end of our journey. We certainly chose a good day for our walk yesterday, as it was a grey and miserableContinue reading “Making a fool of myself”

A bit much

Today’s guest picture comes from Sandy. It shows the impressive hotel where he and two friends stayed while on their recent holiday in Yorkshire. We didn’t have an impressive day here today at all. It was cool and grey in the morning, and cool and wet in the afternoon. In the morning, Mrs Tootlepedal e-cycledContinue reading “A bit much”

From little acorns . . .

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent Venetia. She was passed by this fine vehicle as she was walking home from the village of Street. We had a somewhat cooler, much greyer, and just as windy day today, but fortunately, it stayed driy as Mrs Tootlepedal and I drove up to Broomholmshiels to joinContinue reading “From little acorns . . .”

Three trouser day

Today’s guest picture is the last from my Somerset correspondent Venetia’s visit to Hestercombe Gardens. Our spell of sunny but hazy weather continued, and it was a warm day from the start. I had time to do the crossword and admire a very fine dandelion in the garden . . . . . . beforeContinue reading “Three trouser day”

Fade to grey again

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce. He is on a family visit to Sheffield and came across the Cobweb bridge on the Five Weirs Walk. After our brief sunny interlude, we were back to grey today. Very grey. It was quite warm though and it wasn’t raining so Mrs Tootlepedal was able toContinue reading “Fade to grey again”

Unwrapping trees

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She met these pelicans on a visit to St James’s Park. We didn’t have any exotic birds here this morning, or any sunshine for that matter, just some grey clouds and a rather chilly looking goldfinch on a wire. Some goldfinches did fly down to the feederContinue reading “Unwrapping trees”
