AND INTO NOVEMBER – darker and colder (or cooler); but what a lovely week we have had. Jane Austen writing in 1798 mid November, enjoying fine weather says, ‘ not very becoming peerhaps early morning, but very pleasant out of doors at noon, and very wholesome – at least everybody fancies so, and imagination is everything.’ The main occupation in all the medieval Books of Hours for November is gathering acorns for the pigs – to sustain them in the long hard winter when resources are at their lowest – a bit like faith.
