Unconfined joy

Today’s guest picture is the second portrait of Tony’s dogs by Tash.  It looks as though the dogs had had a New Year’s splash even if Tony hadn’t. We were promised better weather today and we got it but it took some time to arrive as we were covered in mist for most of theContinue reading “Unconfined joy”

Another family meal

Today’s guest picture finally reveals Bruce’s horses in all their beauty.  They are the Kelpies at Falkirk  and well worth a visit if you haven’t seen them yet.  They are huge. Our spell of sunny weather continued and the drop in temperature continued too, with the thermometer struggling to get over 2°C today and aContinue reading “Another family meal”

Yes we have no bananas

Today’s guest picture, kindly sent to me by Mary Jo from the land of proper snow, is designed to stop me moaning about our weather.  It won’t work though.  She tells me that she is currently looking after three houses and is keeping very fit shovelling snow. We had a rather nice day here, withContinue reading “Yes we have no bananas”

Grand Old Duke of York-ish

I didn’t take many bird pictures today so it is lucky that my brother saw some web footed friends on his visit to Ely.  He remarks that  they weren’t enjoying the wet weather. I had a quiet but generally pleasant day today.  It started with a visit to the Archive Centre to pick up aContinue reading “Grand Old Duke of York-ish”

Just can’t stop snapping

Today’s guest picture come all the way from Las Vegas  where Sandy is on holiday.  The architects there seemingly need a little more practice. It was a day of this and that today.  This was beautiful blue skies and sunshine and that was sub zero temperatures in the morning.  The prospect in the garden wasContinue reading “Just can’t stop snapping”

Feeling better

Today’s guest picture is one from my brother’s archive.  He visited Roche Abbey in August and enjoyed this neat little bridge. I woke up feeling a great deal better than yesterday but with a few aches and pains still in residence.  It seemed like case for Dr Velo and so after the regulation amount ofContinue reading “Feeling better”

Just another peaceful Sunday

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by Dropscone and shows a nice waterfall which he passed on his walk today.  It follows the golden rule that there are always trees in front of interesting waterfalls. I had a very normal Sunday.  Mrs Tootlepedal went off to sing with the church choir and I stayedContinue reading “Just another peaceful Sunday”

No siskins

Today’s picture was sent to me by Dropscone’s niece, Hilary.  It shows a lugubrious shoebill that she met at Zurich Zoo. It was a gloriously sunny day today with the only drawback being that it was literally freezing when we woke up.  That put paid to any early cycling and I pottered up to theContinue reading “No siskins”
