Winter

Autumn lasted less than a month. A week of heavy frosts confirms that winter is here. The hedgehogs have gone into hibernation. Let's hope that the electricity workers don't go on strike.

The neighbours no longer throw open the windows in the morning and so I can light a bonfire without causing annoyance. It's time to get rid of the dead leaves, together with the tree branches and hedge clippings that have accumulated during the year.
