November sunshine

My regular lunchtime walk - perhaps two or three times a week - is a circular route through Regent's Park. It is soul-restoring, and with the changing seasons there is a richness to the repetition.

Today's wander coincided with some lovely late Autumn sunshine, and there were still some roses holding out in the face of winter, even though they looked a little bedraggled.

The cold (illness, not thermal) precludes proper tasting tonight. Interestingly, mulled wine (which I'm tasting for a forthcoming Sunday Express column) is a great cold remedy.

Jamie, considering the state of your health, I'll bet your walk -- and the mulled wine -- was body-restoring, too! Sure works for me, alright. A little fresh air and exercise, and I'm sure your taste buds will be soon on the mend.

Thanks for the positive vibe, winehiker.

You are right about mulled wine. I am from Sweden and a very simular spiced red wine at home called "glogg" (traditionally only consumed late Nov. thru early Jan.) has always been my families best cure for the occational winter cold. In lack of real "glogg" here in the states (unless I go to IKEA and find it there) I make my own (whether I have a cold or not)and drink it with the must-have-companion, ginger snaps. My American husband has not found a liking for my Swedish Christmas brew, but for me "glogg" season is coming up. Yummy!
