We love Novem­ber

Gardeners' World - - Contents -

I have a lot of warm socks that take up quite a lot of room in my chest of draw­ers. This is the re­sult of many ‘in-des­per­a­tion’ Christ­mas pur­chases (for­tu­nately, I have avoided bud­get af­ter­shave). All through the sum­mer I shove them to one side in the search for some­thing lighter but, this month, the tem­per­a­tures will drop enough for me to again en­joy the sub­tle plea­sures of a cash­mere sock. Hur­rah for Novem­ber, for glow­ing au­tumn colours, for bon­fire night, for stands of wav­ing grasses and for drifts of fallen leaves scuf­fling be­neath our boots and, of course, for toasty toes.
