Changing Seasons with Jane

 Cleaning up summer with my Jane today. We cleared out the bean forest from the garden box and wrestled with tomato vines. Swept the patio, raked here and there, and planted a few flower petals (Jane's idea).

Still need to pack away the outdoor furniture, tidy the playhouse, and do a little more swinging on the rusty play-set before the rains come.

Maybe we'll finish tomorrow. I've just been informed that it's time to string some wooden beads and a munch on some hummus and carrots.


  1. cute. And I LOVE that picture w/ the rake and the petals.

  2. There is something so satisfying about making ready for a new season. And, something equally satisfying with having the opportunity to spend one-on-one time with the youngest, the child who often gets dragged along in the shuffle of school carpool lines and soccer practice.
