fragrance of winter

I wish that it is possible to smell through the computer.

These are my favourite smells of winter:

The intensity of citrus blossoms.

450g of nagami cumquats. Freshly picked. Spiced? Marmalade? Brandied? Candied?

The smell as they were being sliced: absolutely refreshing and uplifting.

The smell of boiling marmalade throughout the house on a sunday afternoon.

The result: 5 jars of beautiful amber colour jel to last through the season.

Very nice looking blog. I like the clean, spare background with your photos giving colour and graphic interest. Your photos are beautiful, and you have a good balance of picture and text.
