Celebrating Autumn and Halloween

Summer is now officially over.  Leaves are changing color and falling.  We are busy raking leaves while wearing our rubber boots.   It is getting colder and we already bring out our coats and warm  clothes.    The worst thing is that the days are getting shorter.

walking around the streets (here a street in Rosemere) you see lots of leaves everywhere and the streets look somewhat sad.

But there are many people, especially children, who are looking forward to Halloween.  Halloween makes the Fall season somewhat fun and interesting.   In the stores and supermarkets you can already see lots of pumpkins in all shapes and sizes and decorating items.  Not to forget a big choice of Halloween costumes to choose from.

Outside my local supermarket you see this beautiful display of pumpkins just next to lovely Chrysanthemums.

Walking around the garden you see fading Hydrangea and more and more bare trees.  An orange pumpkin gives the garden some color.

Here is Tina going for a walk.

Here I placed a small pumpkin on my patio table.  The whole patio is already covered with leaves and in the flower pots there are not many blooms left.

Next to the front door I placed my little Pumpkin Man and his little friend.

This is one of the neighbor’s houses who really had fun decorating his front porch.  Doesn’t it look lovely.

Inside my house I also give the rooms the Halloween look.   Even the Buddha likes to sit next to a pumpkin.

I decorated my fireplace with Autumn leaves and little sparkling lights.  Orange cushions give the room the look of the season.

For my dining table I bought cute little paper plates and cups and from the lamp I hang a Halloween witch.  In the evening it really looks very festive and cozy at the same time.

Even Tina enjoys her Halloween cushions and the giant pumpkin right in front of her.  I am sure she finds it funny that I am again moving things around.   Yes, and in a few weeks we will be decorating again for Winter and Christmas.  That will be fun !!!
