Polly's Pretty Tulip Patch - 11/15/11

The snow has already been flying around here, so there is no doubt that winter is just around the corner.  Let's just say that winter is not my favorite part of living in central NY.  I suppose the folks in Vermont, where today's puzzle is from,  know a thing or two about winter, themselves.  I'm already thinking of spring, which brought to mind:

Veterans' Day - 11/11/11

Today's featured puzzle from Arizona was placed two years ago today, on Veterans' Day.  The holiday is in honor of  the fact that major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.  Many geo-events will be marking 11/11/11 on the calendar, but I thought it fitting to honor the original 11/11 with a:
