As we waltz towards the winter solstice and the longest night this is the month we really feel the evenings drawing in. It’s the perfect time to pick up a night class, eek out the winter light on a hilltop and gather with girlfriends to plan celebrations, gatherings and parties!
We’re seeing the last of the sloes and hawberries whilst the apples and pears are just about still hanging on the bows. Dandelions are doing a fab job of shining out across lawns, pastures and parks and it’s undoubtedly the perfect time to forage for edible mushrooms and sweet chestnuts.
We’ve chosen as our monthly recipe a super easy and uber comforting desert to chase a Sunday roast – a good old-fashioned apple and pear crumble. Here’s the link to the blog page http://www.babesinthewoods.co.uk/blog/diy-wedding/diy-wild-apple-pear-crumble/
And although not of Celtic origin, bonfire night invites us to gather in small and big communities and marvel at the exploding night sky and blazing fires.
It’s a great time to make a date with yourself for a ‘November Nurture’! A sauna, hot tub or bolt to the sea may be just the ticket to kick start your winter. So however you end up spending your time, enjoy the month’s darkness, warmth, fruits and celebrations.
