The Changing Seasons, November 2022

Reflecting on the month past

I enjoyed time in art spaces – always a happy time for me.

From left, clockwise: 1) walking through Antony Gromley’s “Horizon Field” (2021) with Older & Younger Child at the National Gallery of Singapore, 2) Flora of South East Asia at the Singapore Botanic Gardens, 3) “My pulse is beating and my veins throbbing and in wonder, my song bursts forth” by Hemali Bhuta (2021) at the Singapore Biennale 2022

It’s been a busy month in our kitchen, filled with many a pastry bake, thanks to the Facebook Baking Group that I play with. Hosted by Dorie Greenspan, one of my favourite baking gurus, her easy to follow recipes which allow lots of “playing around”, this generous & inspiring group of bakers have been working on pies in preparation for Thanksgiving. And so, from storebought crusts, we moved definitively into made-from-scratch tarts & galettes.

From top left, clockwise: Cranberry-Blueberry-Apple Galette, Mini Chocolate Chip Banana Loaf, Mushroom Soup Dumplings, Black Sesame Financiers with Matcha Frosting, Fruit & Yogurt Bowl with a dusting of Maca Powder, Grape Yogurt Cake, Cherry Tomato & Feta Galette, Pumpkin Marshmallow Pie, Dark Chocolate Tart

How was your November?

About The Changing Seasons

The Changing Seasons is a monthly project where bloggers around the world share their thoughts and feelings about the month just gone. We all approach this slightly differently, though generally with an emphasis on the photos we’ve taken during the month.

For many of us, looking back over these photos provides the structure and narrative of our post, so each month is different. Some focus on documenting the changes in a particular project — such as a garden, an art or craft project, or a photographic diary of a familiar landscape.

But in the end, it is your changing season, and you should approach it however works for you.

There are no fixed rules around post length or photo number — just a request that you respect your readers’ time and engagement.

    1. I hear you, Pauline. I am sure you both (particularly Jack) would be happy not to see the hospital again any time soon! Hope you are enjoying the warmer weather activities this month!

    1. Hope your December is going well too, Donna!
      So happy to have you delight in my November memories with me – the B&W was snapped by Older Child unbeknownst to me! I thought it was fun.

    1. This particular piece is quite different – previous works had the human form incorporated in some form. I have only seen images of Angel of the North – the immensity is mind-boggling!

      Glad to have your double issue of The Changing Seasons!

  1. What remarkable creativity throughout this post. Your baked goods array is stunning in its beauty and variety (and, I assume, its taste!). And I particularly love your family making their way through Horizontal Field. Both types of art in your post are interactive in the best way!

    1. Tried to leave a response previously but am not sure it went through. Just wanted to say again that I enjoyed your stunning array of images, and my 2 favourites are the wallaby mom (her expression is killer!) and the multi-hued bunch of berries!

  2. That first art structure looks like so much fun to explore and prance around in. I’m not familiar with the term ‘galette.’ So much of your food is new and intriguing to me. My mouth is watering from here!

    1. The rooftop of the National Gallery commissions work which is interactive – I love them!

      Galette is a French term for free form pastry, can be sweet or savoury. I am so glad to be able to share the delights from our culinary adventure!
