I’ve tried to resist filling this post with instagram pictures from sunnier climes where I have spent a chunk of November. Sunshine and sandals isn’t terribly November-y, at least in my little corner of the world. However I couldn’t resist including this snap of palm trees against a deep blue sky. I took it in a garden of a beautiful hotel we visited on the last day of our trip. The garden over looked the sea. The sky was deep blue, the sun was intensely warm and I wanted to capture that feeling knowing that in just 24 hours I would be looking up at considerably greyer skies and trees that had long since shed their summer coats.
I don’t really do Halloween but I couldn’t resist making this chocolate cake with cute meringue ghosts. Although I actually made it on the 31st October, we were still eating it on the 1st November so I thought I could sneak it in. The collection of leaves and vegetables in vibrant greens and purple hues were bought at a local market stall and formed part of a Saturday night supper with friends.
So here we are at the end of November with Christmas a mere 4 weeks away. I suspect my Decembers Instagram feed may be a little less sunny and a lot more sparkly.
