Halloween Comes to The Garden


I thought we'd walk around Musashi's Garden.
Halloween has arrived here, too!



Pumpkin




Halloween Mosaic






Boo

Thank you to our hostesses:
Mary for Mosaic Monday
and 
The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sunday.

***
I cut my tomatoes back instead of pulling them up and
I was amazed when I found tomatoes starting again on the balcony garden.
I also have Mesclun and Spinach and hopefully, some sweet peas!
We'll see how friendly Mother Nature is after our horrible summer.
It is estimated that the tree loss will be in the millions.
It will take a generation to rebuild the canopy in Houston, if we are lucky.


Wishing YOU well and a JOY filled week.

Nice to have more abundance from the garden at this time of year but you so needed rain sooner than this.

I read your comment about losing trees. It just is so sad. We have had no rain in my area of the Midwest either. We are 7 inches behind. Love your doll with the candy corn!

Isn't it crazy how into Halloween people have gotten? Such fun. Seeing 63 days until Christmas caused my heart to skip a beat! Always good to hear from you.

I love raggedy Ann so much I have one hubby gave me when we were going out. Beautiful fall mosaic, I'm already thinking of Christmas decor, maybe at the end of this month as time flies and then you have to take it out. Thank you for visiting me and for the lovely comment. Have a nice Sunday. FABBY

Beautiful mosaic...
The summer we had just about took everything with it...our trees, flowers..the lawn has finally come back but not very healthy looking. Praying we all have a nice, wet winter...

Such a cute fall mosaic. This is a real shame about your trees, at least replanting can be started for the next generation.
