The poet Elizabeth Coatsworth wrote "The fires burn And the kettle sing, And earth sinks to rest Until next spring." Here on the Vineyard the frost is on last month's pumpkin, and the bird bath has a thin sheet of ice. Finally time to turn off the outdoor shower and roll up the hose. Fill your bird feeder and keep your soup on the stove simmering all day. Happy November!
