November Colour

Wednesday, 9 November 2011











 I took my camera outside to look for colour. I found scarlet leaves, turquoise metal, orange berries, white fungi and blood red hips.
The berries and hips reminded me of the bowl of dried fruit I had soaking in brandy in the kitchen.
Time to make the Christmas cake.




Wrapped well in greaseproof paper and foil, stored in an airtight tin, it will be unwrapped once a week until Christmas and fed with more brandy.

  5. I yearn to make a lovely Christmas cake like that, but my whole household (including me) is not very fond of dried fruit so I never have that happy creative experience. Poor me.

  7. LOVE that top photograph. Great looking cake too! I'm waiting until the end of November to make mine as I have a fear of getting into Christmas too soon. Horrified to find Christmas decorations all over Broadmead and Cabot Circus today - haven't been down there for ages.

  11. Gosh, what beautiful photos! And your cake: I would love a Christmas taste. I am the only one in my house who likes that particular kind of cake. My grandmother used to send us one every year and my mother and I had it to ourselves!
