Indian summer?

We have been having the most beautiful weather for absolutely ages now - we're all still fully into summer clothes, even though its well and truly autumn. (Is this what is called an 'indian summer' in northern America?) The kids have been spending heaps of time outside now that its not as hot as summer was. Caleb spent a long time happily throwing these leaves around. He loves it outside, but tends to head straight for my pot of lavendar. He has dug nearly to the base of the pot, and I have to wash the black dirt off him several times a day. I have been mulling on a solution to this for some time, (in conjunction with teaching him not to touch, of course:) ) and I'm going to try something out tomorrow - I'll let you know how I go!
