Despite my efforts -- sheets covering the most delicate specimens -- the fight to keep my flowers blooming is over with the first official snow. But the pictures of daggars of snow plunging down in front of the fall display on my porch delight me. Look at those pumpkins nestled under the blossoms of summer. They are ready to puff out their chests and announce, "Your day is done. Shrink back and we'll see you next spring. Today is mine!"
If you're fortunate enough to have a bit of earth to call your own, make the most of it.
