This guy doesn't look very scary.
Does this look like a monster to you?
A reminder of simpler times. Of course, then there weren't so many fiberglass bovines wandering around.
These fun squash and gourd arrangements dotted the landscape at Spooner Farms.
It's really all about the pumpkins. I just heard on the radio that American Halloween traditions, adapted from original Celtic and Scottish practices (turnips carved into jack-o-lanterns/squash is a new world plant) have now made it back across the pond. Halloween is now the largest retail sales holiday in Great Britain. There is a push to sell all of the pumpkins by Halloween as there is no Thanksgiving, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cookies, etc. to follow All Hallows Eve.
Looks as if the animals escaped from the circus train and have taken over the lavender garden.
Speaking of the old days...
New and old seem to mix well at this time of year!
These guys are destined for the pumpkin slingshot.
I didn't know that this was called pumpkin chucking until recently..
This year's targets are much more attractive than the disintegrating Winnebago that had been used in previous years. Looks like many of these can be reused.
I can never resist taking pictures of the gourds and squash!
Squash are edible as well as being ornamental.
Gourds, not so much.
Still am amused by warty pumpkins, new to me last year.
concrete boots would be a great door stop!
You know, a bit of concealer and a nice foundation would make a world of difference...
Scholz displays are a more geared to younger children.
There are lots of cute photo op cutouts.
Someone is having fun!
Look smug now, Tom. Thanksgiving is coming.
What do you think of this warm fall weather? It's not baaaad at all!
I would go on but fear making an ass of myself. Oops too late.
Where exactly is Cinderella supposed to sit?
Daisy is certainly curvaceous!
I went around gathering gourds and pumpkins to use on my table as usual but decided to use things already around the house. The glossy glass pumpkin just in front/right of the candle holder in the center was this years addition from the Glass Eye Studio Sale.
However you spend your Halloween, I hope it's full of treats and no unpleasant tricks! Happy All Hallows Eve, Happy All Saints, Happy Dia de los Muertos!
