I was talking to a lovely American lady the other day about preparing her garden for winter. She called this ‘winterising’, with a lovely midwest drawl . Although I’d never heard the word before I immediately grasped it’s meaning and I’m guessing you will too.
Apologies to any language purists out there but I do fully believe in the richness of our changing, alive language and so I am embracing the term ‘Winterising’. Try it out loud – with the drawl.
