The Winds of Change

Change is inevitable. Sometimes change comes with a rhythm. In the spring we wait until the snow melts and nighttime temperatures stay above freezing before we plant colorful flowers in our garden. We enjoy their beauty all spring and summer until the first frost heralds the coming fall and winter. Then we pull out our warm coats, hats and…
