Plant Spring Bulbs

Fall is the time to plant bulbs to ensure a beautiful spring.  Not only is this a great opportunity to go out and enjoy the warm weather before the cold winds start blowing, it also is a great time to reminisce with the person with memory loss.  Old gardens, favorite flowers, occasions involving planting or flowers are all great conversation starters.  Those in the early stages should be able to complete this activity with little or no guidance, as long as you don’;t care what the final planting arrangement is.  THose in the more moderate stages will need you to be very directive, showing them where to dig and how to place the bulb in the ground.  Those in the late stages may only be able to place the bulb in the ground, or even just sit and watch, but will surly enjoy being outside and listening to you narrate the task.

Oh, and if you’re a member of Sam’s Club, you’re in luck.  They have a great deal on bulbs right now!  Of course, if you buy six packages like I did, the savings isn’t as great as it would be if you only bought two, but what would be the fun in that?
