'No sun - no moon!
No morn - no noon -
No dawn - no dusk - no proper time of day.
No warmth, no cheerfulness, no healthful ease,
No comfortable feel in any member -
No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees,
No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no birds! -
Or so the famous poem goes… Well, no offence to Mr Hood but I beg to differ, November is all about lights. Yes the nights may be drawing in, but November is the month for bonfires, fireworks and for the spirit of Christmas, albeit slightly prematurely, to start to make its presence felt.
So enough with the somber mood, summer is over, and unless we intend to emigrate us Brits are going to have to jolly well get used to it. But rather than grinning and bearing it, this year I intend to make the most of the dark nights, creating a cosy little nest in which to hibernate in! There very few better ways to do this than a blazing log fire and flickering candlelight. These small touches can completely alter the atmosphere of a room, creating an inviting, cosy ambience to snuggle up in.
