An early bird and a trip to Edinburgh

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by Mary Jo from Manitoba.  She thinks that I ought to raise my lawn care ambitions a bit. It was grey,  windy and sometimes wet when I went up to the fill the feeders at the Moorland Project’s Laverock Hide.  Sandy is away in very distant parts onContinue reading “An early bird and a trip to Edinburgh”

Showers and sunshine

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew, who thought that this picture of the fernery at York on a rainy day might interest me after my fern walk with Mike a few  days ago.  He was right.  It interested Mike too. We had another cool and windy day here, with occasional heavy showers.  IContinue reading “Showers and sunshine”

Three outings

Today’s guest picture puts our recent snow here into perspective.  It was sent to me by Lucie from Manitoba and it shows an unwelcome late and heavy fall of snow which was making life hard for birds on her feeder. We had another chilly day today but it didn’t rain and the sun came outContinue reading “Three outings”

A day of decisions

The guest picture of the day comes from a visit to Wakefield that my brother made a few weeks ago.   The theatre there is a  handsome but modest building as befits a down to earth town. After some quite heavy rain overnight and a rather misty, murky morning,  today turned into a very pleasant day. Continue reading “A day of decisions”

Uphill work

Today’s guest picture is from the files and shows the Rotunda Geological Museum in Scarborough.  It was taken by my sister Mary during my siblings visit to the town back in December. The new year continued in excellent form today with another bright and sunny day, cold but not freezing, and with a light breeze.Continue reading “Uphill work”

Here and there

Today’s guest picture is a view of the inside of Ely Cathedral taken by my brother Andrew. I got up pretty promptly this morning as I was due to go up to the Moorland Feeders because Sandy is still away and Mrs Tootlepedal needed the car to go to Carlisle to help sorting out theContinue reading “Here and there”

Put out to grass

Today’s guest picture is another from the Menger family’s Highland meander.  It shows the daughter of the house holding a cushion starfish which they met on on a fishing trip they took from Islonia, an island kingdom near Gairloch. For the second day running, I was acting as a relief feeder filler for the Moorland FeedersContinue reading “Put out to grass”

Feeding frenzy

Today’s guest picture is another from Venetia’s adventures in the Highlands.  She went out on a boat and saw these bottle nosed dolphins disporting themselves. I had another quiet morning with high quality idling only interrupted by the need to mow the middle lawn and the desire to capture the continuing beauty of the peoniesContinue reading “Feeding frenzy”

Plan B

Today’s guest picture is a very fine harpsichord, built in 1999 after one built by one of the Ruckers family of Flemish harpsichord makers of the late 16th and early 17th C.  My sister Susan heard it played at a concert recently.  Lucky her. This was the last day of our very warm and dryContinue reading “Plan B”

Out like a lamb

Today’s guest picture is another from Fiona’s visit to the Washington Wildlife Park.   It’s a striking bird, I think you’ll agree. March, as it should, went out like a lamb and we enjoyed a sunny and calm day from start to finish. I had a busy morning so it was just as well that IContinue reading “Out like a lamb”
