Summer Remnants

We've been lucky to have such a mild fall, relatively speaking, and yesterday we spent a good portion of the day outside enjoying the lovely fall weather. M found some wild flowers still blooming and decided it would be a good idea to "plant" these as bulbs for next spring. This gave me the idea to save our nearly-dead impatiens from the yard waste bin and instead let M and J play with them, dump them out, plant them, and generally have a great time in the backyard. And what a treat to be able to eat lunch and read books at our picnic table in mid-November!
