What I thought was going to be a quick look and possibly a photo or two turned into a very pleasant half hour visiting with the family that was in the process of decorating their yard for halloween. We got a first hand demo on the making and installing of ghost and witches, that led into instructions on how to care for mums, which became a class on drying and painting birdhouse gourds, that somehow segued into the art of getting the nutmeat out of black walnut hulls and shells, because some member of this family was adept at each of these activities.
I'm sure my photos and newfound knowledge of all these subjects will make its way into some future post. But, now I want to share with you that black moving object that originally caught my eye because it is perfect for yard art Thursday.
this big black cats eyes follow you everywhere as its head moves from side to side
goose is dressed as a devil for halloween
I was told that this is the good witch
but the ghost is really Spooky. Yep thats his name.
