What does winter mean to you?

       

Just brought the garden brolly inside, stacked up the garden chairs and swept the patio clean of leaves.

The plum tree looks stark and bare, most of the flower pots are empty  and the barbecue in the corner has become a storage unit again.

         

 

Looking on the bright side  ……………..

I’ve just spotted the basket of jams and pickles I made ready for winter teatimes, so I’ll light the candles by the fire, make some  crumpets and open one of those jars of plum jam I just came across. And while I have my tea I can look out at the last of the colour – the berries, the winter jasmine and the leaves on that nice pear tree.

                  

    

I know its only just November but I can do it all again in December – and January – and February –  I’ve got 18 jars of jam left – anyone for crumpets?
