Well now it's December...
So I am determined to take it as easy as I like this year.
We had snow already the other week. Ian was a tad disappointed that there was not enough snow to make a snow man. It also rained the same evening and washed it all away.
We've still had plenty of frost though.
But my Lemon Balm both looked pretty and tasted pretty when baked into chicken pies.
And my strawberry plant seems to be a bit confused... we bought it 2 years ago and have had 1 strawberry from it! Just before it snowed it was trying to flower but gave up after the snow and has lots of new growth instead. It's a hardy wee plant.
And as always we have been on many, many walks... and as always we come home with sticks, stones, pinecones and a new favourite, sheeps wool from the barbed wire fences.
Now, I must go as I have some handmade gifts to get cracking on as well, I have only 23 days to complete them.
Is anyone else making many gifts this year?
