The Winter Solstice

The Winter Solstice – Shortest day in a year.

It was foggy yesterday morning, heavy dew, and sunny day, typical Winter in Upper Hunter.
But, it is not cold as usual. I should say not yet.

We eat Pumpkin, Konnyaku (made from Konnyaku potato, rubbery texture, and we say it cleans your intestine), and have a Yuzu (Japanese citrus) bath in Japan where I’m from on the Winter Solstice.
Any other custom do you know what to do on the day?
Love to hear from you 🙂

☝This weekend is the last of Hugh Walker exhibition, come and have a look before it ends. You can purchase paintings!
As you know, you can taste wine every weekend, and I noticed 2014 Chardonnay has started showing the beauty of that vintage.
And….. not many left
Please come and have a taste. This wine will be maturing beautifully for another few years, so get them before sold out.
