Autumn turns to Winter

December began in earnest today, and as I looked around our garden the feeling that Autumn is beginning to turn into Winter seemed to be all embracing. No longer can I walk around barefoot basking in the warmth of sun tending to my flowers, watching Matilda play. This will give way to cosy days inside the house watching the harsh weather from behind the window. Don't get me wrong I don't mind this at all, keeping warm under wool blankets with hot drink in hand.

Funny how December so rich with colour is enveloped by such stark surroundings...
