Happy Halloween!

The Hallo-wieners are on their way. I've had fun decorating the house and garden. The holiday was a good excuse to buy a few items for the house. I found this turret candleholder at Potagers a few weeks ago.

It almost looks spooky with an orange candle inside.

And we've hung lots of webs and giant spiders outside as well.

Just to keep on-topic: I was lucky enough to visit the Natural Gardener Nursery last week where I found some hardy succulents for my old urn. I can't wait to see how it looks after it's filled in.

Hope all of you have a very Happy & Safe Halloween Night. If you want to send a fun/free Halloween e-card I can highly recommend the nice folks at Care2. Every e-card you send helps support good environmental causes...

And a Happy Halloween to you.

I hope you had lots of cute Trick or Treaters, Dawn - any ladybugs, flowers, bees, or butterfly costumes?

Thanks Lisa and Annie!

We enjoyed Halloween night by watching "Young Frankenstein" between door-bell rings. Over 100 trick-or-treaters came to our door this year. It was a lot of fun. I didn't notice any garden-related costumes, Annie, but we did see a lot of princesses and super heros.

Hope your evening was enjoyable as well.

Happy Belated Halloween, Dawn!

I love the holiday but didn't decorate as well as you... Great Show!

Thanks Mary!
I hope you had some nice trick-or-treaters at any rate. I'm still praying you'll get plenty of cooling rain so your drought will be a thing of the past.

Take care,
