This is Halloweeeen, this is Hallloweeeeen!
Thank you to each and every one who hosted a Halloween Party on October 27th, and those who popped in just to party with us too. I saw you there ;)
It was a blast!
You all out-did yourselves, what an awesome kindred gathering of whimsical hearts!!
And, to anyone who forgot to post a party or couldn't post a party for some reason or another, please don't fret. I know life happens. I do.
As for today...
There have been preparations in the garden for our tradition.
A Halloween feast!
The mysterious autumn sunsets, and the glowing moon coming over the great big mountains, have been more than gasp worthy these last few days.
Little creatures pop into proper frocks...
Masks on faces...
And a little basket treat from Tracy for Miss Tattered Raggedy (thank you Tracy!!).
We are collecting blooms for the table, and working up a spooktacular menu.
Zinnia petals like paper.
So many watercolor shades.
Perfect nature gifts.
Pumpkins get shuffled about.
As our feast will be in the front garden.
Strolls encouraged with glowing cocktails in hand.
Mesquite trees hang on to the last days of leaves on limbs.
Rake here, rake there.
Light a Jack-o-Lantern.
And then a curious sound...
Hawks arrive, finding a cozy spot, high up in a cloud tall eucalyptus tree.
Everyone puts on their costumed best.
Pups chew on this or that outside the office, as I run about.
Getting their costumes ready of course.
Gotcha Matty ;)
(hates having his pic taken)
Moon captivates over mountain tops, through branches...
Twinkly lights go on.
We begin our Halloween festivities!!!!
A Halloween feast this eve.
Under the stars and moon and trees.
Let the magic begin!!!!!!!
(this pic below, to me is, what a hauntingly beautiful violin tune might look like)
Of course, right now, it's still morning...
So I best start the caramel corn.
Oven baking butter brown sugar scent, on this Halloweeeeeeen!
Happy Haaaaaappy Halloween Friends!
Stay safe, and have goblin gobs of fun!
Hearts to all affected by the storm.
So many thoughts.
