November 25th is St Catherine's Day, she of wheel fame.
St Catherine is the patron saint of young girls, of students, of nurses and of any craftsmen whose work involves wheels; like spinners, wheelwrights and millers. And if she isn't then she ought to be the patron saint of pyrotechnicians .
As we have our very own Katherine (my daughter Katie) I thought it would be nice to celebrate St Catherine's day with some traditional cattern cakes which you can read all about here.
Cattern cakes were originally a sweetened yeast cake flavoured with caraway. This version is really a big soft biscuit. They reminded me a little of flat rock cakes.
Today is also Quince Tree day, the 25th day of the month is when I take a picture of the tree.
Here she is with her leaves exactly the same colour as her fruit were last month.
