Winter

Posted by David Taylor on 23/10/2014

Winter

“Today’s a nipping day, a biting day;
In which one wants a shawl,
A veil, a cloak, and other wraps….”

Winter: My Secret
Christina Rossetti


After an unusually mild October and unseasonably warm weather we sit at the door of winter. We know it’s coming, but September and especially October, lulled us into a false sense of security. Now, we see the night’s drawing in, the blustery storms shaking the trees and we draw ever closer to the fire.

We can do nothing more now than look forward to the spring, but winter can be fun - we can enjoy it if we allow ourselves to. As the autumn month’s draws to a close, it’s a time for resting at home with loved ones, gathering strength before bearing the brunt of Christmas shopping and the crueller colder months of January and February.
