First frost

We've begun preparing for winter by bringing indoors the lilies in their lovely dragon pot because it's not frost-proof. There have been conversations about winter fuel supplies, planting Spring bulbs in the frost-proof pots, plans for Christmas food, and the beginnings of shopping for gifts.

While Autumn is my favourite month, winter is not without its attractions.

"Winter is the time for comfort, for
good food and warmth, for the touch
of a friendly hand and for a talk beside
the fire:  it is the time for home
." Edith Sitwell
