Short days, autumn trees

So the clocks have changed and with the onslaught of winter I can officially feel cold and miserable for the next 5 or 6 months! 
I will of course be trying to fight those feelings of grimness and see if I can muster up a positive attitude to get me through the bleak months. Lack of light and heat really affect all that I do in work, arts and crafts so I'm hoping for a mild winter, maybe that's expecting too much, maybe as long as it's not as bad as last year then I have a chance!

Last week on one reasonably dry day I cut the grass which I hope is the last time this year.

I've also been photographing the changing colours of some trees I look out onto. I started about 2 months ago and here is the series of weekly colour changes from start to this morning.
Looking at the pictures all together I thought it was more dramatic than what it is but I think a lot of that is to do with the colour of the sky.

What a beautiful garden - I would love an old brick wall just like yours. I feel miserable already too...usually hits me in January but I've got the SAD lightbox out already!

Nice to know I'm not alone in feeling a bit grim at this time of year! Hmmm, maybe I need a SAD lightbox too.
