A Few Fall Chores

My granddaughter came for a visit and we spent the day outside doing a few fall
chores. She raked up quite a few of the sweet gum balls, which we
later in the evening burned in our chimanea, while having hot chocolate.
She also helped me dig all the holes to plant these
tulips.  I told her - hopefully we will see their
pretty heads at Easter time. 

We also planted Red Devon daffodils and some
 "Snake Head" iris. I've never
tried either of these.

We always cook a large breakfast when she comes to stay
and she helps with this also. She especially enjoys
setting the table with flowers from the garden.
