Ten minutes of rain

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She mowed her lawn today but tells me not to look too closely at it.  It looks good to me. We had another lovely morning and as a result, Mrs Tootlepedal had to spend a good deal of the day watering the garden.  Even after a goodContinue reading “Ten minutes of rain”

Out for a date

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  When he looks out to sea, he can see a rig parking lot.. Because we are generally confined to the garden rather than driving or cycling all over the place, there is a certain similarity between one day and another in our life, especially in this currentContinue reading “Out for a date”

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”

The last post

Today’s guest picture is the final one from Venetia’s Moroccan trip.  It shows a gecko basking in the sun. It was another grey day here but slightly warmer and not actually raining as I walked to church in the morning.  Our bus driving organist had been called to do an an extra shift owing toContinue reading “The last post”

Meeting but not greeting

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who visited Stourhead with her friend Venetia.  As she knows that I like a bridge, she sent me this picturesque example. I am still quite tired as having a very youthful visitor is not straightforward.  Getting down with the kids is fine. It’s getting up again thatContinue reading “Meeting but not greeting”

Hanging around

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony’s partner Marianne.  She shared her enjoyment of a view over the river Tay at Perth with some jackdaws. I realised when I came to put this post together that I had included far too many pictures in it by accident so I apologise in advance and recommendContinue reading “Hanging around”

Sunshine and showers

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone who was alarmed to see some bears while he was out on a walk  in the town.  He calmed down when he noticed that there was a stout fence between them and him. It was a very unreliable day today as far as both the weather and the weatherContinue reading “Sunshine and showers”

Scones, scuttling around and singing

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony’s walk round the Wemyss Estate.  As well as a parakeet in a tree, he came across a curious deer which was looking a bit lost. We were visited by storm Diana today.  I must say that the practice of giving passing weather fronts a name isContinue reading “Scones, scuttling around and singing”

Croaking through

Today’s guest picture comes from my friend Bruce who is obviously enjoying a stay in the north east of Scotland.  He visited a famous collapsed sea cave called Bullers of Buchan.  It must have been spectacular when the roof fell in. There is no question but that summer is going to be a disappointment thisContinue reading “Croaking through”

Keeping an eye on Mrs Tootlepedal

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent Venetia who strayed as far as Berkshire to take this picture on a sunny walk in Twyford a day or two ago. Our brief summer has gone and we are back to normal spring temperatures.  It felt a bit chilly as a result this morning but itContinue reading “Keeping an eye on Mrs Tootlepedal”
