Autumn to Winter

We had it so good, weather-wise, this summer. So much warmth, light and growth.
Autumn came relatively gently - certainly relative to the wreckage it wrought in other parts such as Indonesia, the Philippines and now parts of the US. We had a few strong winds but the leaves were so full of nutrition that few of them fell until recently - and now they have " turned ":
Lovely indeed for November 17th. But just two days later, winter showed up in the back garden:

ant that had strawberries in it so recently!
Out with the woolies - including working on a wooly wreath for the December celebrations.
