November is approaching fast and marks the start of winter.
Apart from my wedding that’s at the end of the month there’s also Bonfire Night that many people celebrate with fireworks and outdoor (safe) fires. I on the other hand often prefer to snuggle up on the sofa and bring the outdoors indoors by simply adding some woodland fresh flowers.

When is Bonfire Night?
“Remember, Remember the 5th of November” is a little rhyme I learnt when I first came to England.
Why Do we Celebrate Bonfire night?
It’s celebrated in the UK because it marks the day in 1605 when Guy Fawkes, who plotted to blow up the Houses of Parliament, was stopped before his plans could be carried out.
Guy Fawkes lead a group who wanted to return to Catholicism and hoped that by killing the Protestant King, James I, it could be accomplished, hence their plans. However, the information about the attack leaked and the group were found and executed.
Do you celebrate the night with a bonfire or do you stay indoors?
