We love November • The pumpkins of Halloween are now just sadly decomposing memories on doorsteps across the land, and the spirit of Christmas (though looming and quite apparent in our supermarket aisles) is not yet at full volume. This is a restful month where the first cold spells will come to dislodge the last of the autumn colour, and we can tuck it neatly away to make compost and leafmould for next season. It is still warm enough for comfortable gardening, yet the weeds have stopped growing and our lawns have settled into winter. Enjoy the quiet – it won’t last long!
