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”

The other half

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset corespondent Venetia. She was visited by a greater spotted woodpecker the other day. We had a pleasantly sunny morning here, with enough wind to ensure that it didn’t get too hot for the morning street coffee meeting. We were greatly entertained as we sipped and chatted by aContinue reading “The other half”

More sunshine

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony and shows one of his dogs relaxing in his garden.  He tells me that he sun (almost) always shines in East Wemyss. When I woke up this morning, I was very happy to find that the sun was shining and my feet were not hurting.  Life wasContinue reading “More sunshine”

Rattling around

Today’s guest picture comes from Bruce’s trip to Sweden and shows the Stockholm’s Gröna Lund amusement park as seen from the water.  With my head for heights, there would be little amusement there for me. We had another fine and sunny day today with light winds, just perfect for cycling.  The day had been providedContinue reading “Rattling around”

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who was on a bus crossing Waterloo Bridge when she came over all Wordsworth and admired the view.  (I know, I know; he was crossing Westminster Bridge but that is not far away). After rain overnight, we had a fine and occasionally sunny day today so MrsContinue reading “Cutting it fine”

The calm after the storm

In lieu of any new material, I have returned to Venetia’s  trip to Madeira for the guest picture of the day.  Somewhere between the mountains and the sea, she passed through this narrow gap. Being Friday, I had made an arrangement to have coffee and treacle scones with Dropscone.  The forecast for the afternoon wasContinue reading “The calm after the storm”

A song and a smile

Today’s guest picture from my Somerset correspondent, Venetia, shows what is going on on the street….or to be more accurate, a sunset in the churchyard in the village of Street in Somerset. I felt rather weedy in the morning with very little get up and go in evidence and as a result when Mrs TootlepedalContinue reading “A song and a smile”
