It's that time of year again. We've closed up the side door and sealed it shut for the winter. We're trying to find all the cracks between the logs and seal them up too so it is cozy when the temperature drops low. The winter tires are on the car. The garden is harvested and next year's garlic planted. And the cats are having a blast playing in the leaves. And the birds are migrating. But the flowers in the hanging baskets are still looking good.
