I love Thanksgiving. Coming from the UK this holiday is, of course, foreign. Perhaps because of that, we can steal what is good about it and not get caught up in the baggage of obligation that we hear some of our American friends complain about. So no travel for us, just low key relaxation, indulgent cooking and – aw shucks, we’ll admit it – giving thanks!

Later that weekend it was too cold and wet to be outside and so I turned to a vase of flowers – a favorite – anemones, lush and bold but not quite as Barbara Cartland blousy as peonies.
