Down in the valley

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony and shows the famous flying dog of East Wemyss. (And the nifty pergola that Tony has just built.) We had a cloudy but dry day here today, warm enough to sit out in the garden for coffee, Mrs Tootlepedal in our garden with our neighbours and IContinue reading “Down in the valley”

Getting my goat

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter Annie.  It shows some early peach blossom. We were promised wall to wall sunshine today by the forecasters with some confidence so it was disappointing to get up to a cloudy day with the standard chilly wind.  Still, it didn’t rain and I was able not only toContinue reading “Getting my goat”

Just kidding

Today’s guest picture comes from Mary Jo’s Australian trip.  Her husband used his phone to take this shot of a big flock of bats. We woke to brilliant sunshine and we were easily able to ignore a crisp temperature and a nippy wind.  Not having rain and a gale were quite enough to keep usContinue reading “Just kidding”

Blown away

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. It shows all the cakes that he and my sister Susan didn’t eat when they visited a garden centre cafe. They are both models of restraint. I was woken in the middle of the night by a tremendous rattling on the windows, and thinking it was anotherContinue reading “Blown away”

A tea tray moment

Today’s guest picture comes from a visit to Birmingham by my brother Andrew.  He took the opportunity to show us the BT Tower there on a beautiful day.. I am trying mix gentle exercise with good quality rest for my foot so I went back to lie on my bed after breakfast and was fortunateContinue reading “A tea tray moment”

Getting my goat

I would like to thank kind readers for sending me a positive flood of potential guest pictures and I have chosen one from Venetia’s African odyssey to start off.  It shows a gemsbok which appealed to me as it appeared in a recent crossword as an answer to a cryptic clue.  It is good toContinue reading “Getting my goat”

Really getting my goat

Today’s guest picture is another from Gavin’s visit to Yosemite and shows a quite well known waterfall there. We had another chilly but dry day today.   This was a bit of a surprise as we had been promised rain. Dropscone is going on holiday on the Isle of Skye next week so he cameContinue reading “Really getting my goat”

Getting my goat

Today’s guest picture comes from my neighbour Gavin, who is on a trip to see family in the USA.  They have been been visiting Yosemite. There was some every nice sunny weather when we got up but the wind soon got up too and if you weren’t in the sun, it was decidedly cool. Being Sunday, MrsContinue reading “Getting my goat”

End of the spell

Today’s guest picture comes from my friend Bruce, who recently met this Glasgow tram at the Crich National Tramway Museum.  It gives a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘going to university’ We had what is probably the last of our superbly sunny spring spell today.   As is all too common in life, instead of being outContinue reading “End of the spell”

A lot to see

Today’s guest picture is another from my brother’s recent trip to Spain.  Santillana Del Mar is a Spanish village 20 kilometres from the Bay of Biscay, which has scarcely changed from Medieval times. After the thunderstorm overnight, today was sunny and much brighter as the haze had been swept away by the rain.  It wouldContinue reading “A lot to see”
