A Week of 50s October 30, 2012

Since Sunday and into the coming week, we are experiencing temps at or near 50 degrees. Now I know that seems a bit chilly, but the days are beautifully sunny and mild with low winds.

I coaxed my hubby to the garden for a bonfire telling him we had to finish up the last of the smore ingredients. Who likes soggy, stale grahams? We had to eat them!

It was a perfect afternoon for a fire and a smore, or maybe two.

I also had a chance to plant a few bulbs and a perennial. I added a Lutea Yellow Fritillaria, Elegant Lady Lily Tulips, an Oktoberfest Tall Bearded Iris, and Mixed Scilla. Can’t wait for spring!

What are you doing to enjoy the Fall weather?

  1. After only 2 bonfires all Summer long (to hot and risky) we have enjoyed a few this past week and this week as well!!! Happy Halloween

      The same with us. We usually have them regularly and we only had a couple as well. It was fun and I hope we can get at least 1 more in. Happy Halloween to you also.

    Mmmmm, smores. Our weather is cooling off as well, only a few degrees above zero later this week (I don’t know what that is in Farenheit, but it means time to put the heavy coat on here!). Spring seems a long ways off!
