Mrs Tootlepedal goes round in a circle

Today’s guest picture comes from Sue Bourne, who I met on my walk yesterday. She kindly sent me this striking picture of cladonia lichen which she had seen at Caulside in Canonbie. It was slightly cooler in the morning today when we got up but it was still quite humid. I felt pretty tired andContinue reading “Mrs Tootlepedal goes round in a circle”

Falling leaves

Today’s guest picture comes from the son of my friend Sue and shows the very impressive container (used only once on the trip from Hong Kong) which Sue has had craned into her garden.  She will transmogrify it into a garden room and office. We have been blessed with an unexpected rise in temperatures andContinue reading “Falling leaves”

A cool air

Today’s picture shows a lighthouse at Whitley Bay where my friends Gavin and Gaye were recently on grandparenting duty. Although the day here promised to be sunny, it soon faded to a dull grey with a keenly nipping wind.  As I walked up to the town, a passer by described it to me with considerableContinue reading “A cool air”

Discrepancy

Today’s picture, taken today on a rare sunny day in London by my sister Mary on her morning walk, shows the lake at Kenwood House.  The bridge in the background is for decorative purposes only and leads nowhere. It was a foul, wet and windy day at breakfast and I was pleased that I wasn’tContinue reading “Discrepancy”

Here comes the sun (at last)

Today’s picture, sent to me by my sister Mary, shows a handsome statue in Waterlow Park, London where she has been walking.  The statue shows Sir Sydney Waterlow, who donated the park to the public.  By coincidence, Sir Sydney was for a short time in 1868/69  MP for Dumfriesshire but was forced to resign owingContinue reading “Here comes the sun (at last)”

Dogging our footsteps

Today’s picture, sent by Bruce from North Berwick, shows the North Berwick Fire Station.  Sadly it has just suffered a catastrophic fire as you can see.   Only someone with no manners would find this funny. Another sub zero day and another visit to the gym, courtesy of Dropscone.  I felt a lot better today andContinue reading “Dogging our footsteps”

Making trax

Today’s picture, sent by Bruce who is on holiday there, shows the foreshore at North Berwick with the Bass Rock in the background.  It looks sunny but I bet it was pretty chilly. It was certainly chilly enough here but a moon in the clear sky promised a sunny day at least.  Dropscone turned upContinue reading “Making trax”

Three times walking

Today’s picture shows the garden early in the morning. I checked with my infallible high-tec snow depth measurer… That much snow had fallen during the night.  It meant a busy time at the feeders…. …both in the air and on the ground below…. As usual the feeders were in deep shadow but it wasn’t tooContinue reading “Three times walking”

Flaming June

Today’s picture is the moon when I went to bed last night. In spite of the very clear night, it wasn’t too cold when we woke up and our visiting cyclist was able to look forward to a kinder day in the saddle than yesterday.  It was even nice enough for me to get outContinue reading “Flaming June”

A warning sign

Today’s picture is another from Dropscone’s daughter, Susan, from their recent French outing.  I imagine this is a D-Day cliff. Mrs Tootlepedal went off to sing in the church choir again.  Her moral tone is improving every week and she tells me she has no intention of coveting her neighbour’s ox any more, even ifContinue reading “A warning sign”
