We Have a Winner


We've had a warm autumn this year, and  the impatiens are still doing great. A cold front is coming through this weekend, and the temperatures will drop over 20 degrees. My winter hardy hibiscus are blooming again! I heard some folks say that their lilacs are blooming again. This is not normal at all. 
We are still having watermelon salads. and recently had one in Rocky Mountain National Park where we traveled to. They topped it with arugula, burrata, balsamic reduction, lemon olive oil and sea salt. I'm duplicating that tonight! 
We had gorgeous weather while in Rocky Mountain National Park, and the aspens were at peak. It rained briefly for one day, and then turned to snow. The rest of the week was warm and spectacular. 

The winner of WATERCOLOR SNACKS is: 

Patti  @ Pandoras Box

Hope you enjoy it Patti! It's perfect for grandchildren and beginning artists. Thanks for stopping by!
