The girls have been busy in the kitchen and our poor garden is looking a little neglected.
There's not a whole lot growing apart from these wonderful flowers, which are certainly adding a little colour to our lives.
We have finally said goodbye to our bumper crop of tomatoes and the last of those fabulous autumn plums are a distant memory. With this in mind, notice the subtle seasonal changes to the menu. Say hello to rooibos tea poached pears.
It's time to wrap up warm and step outside to do some serious planting. What's happening in your garden?
