This year seems to have gone with the blink of an eye, it's hard to realise that it's only a month until the Winter Solstice and the nights will start drawing out again, however living this far west we don't get the very long winter nights and it is still not quite dark at six thirty.
We are still picking strawberries but not too many, they are back to being a luxury, still we will probably get yet another picking before they take a well earned rest.
The weather so far is being kind,although we have had rain the last couple of days, it is still very mild and we have even seen a viburnum bursting into bloom.
With the days fast heading towards the end of the year reminds us that we have still done nothing about making a cake or pudding for Xmas, maybe we really can skip it this year, what a lovely thought.
