There is a fairly long walk (especially for a child in a hurry to claim their Halloween treat) from the sidewalk to our front porch. The trick-or-treaters are focused on the treat they will soon receive and don't notice any of the outside plants or decorations. The adult chaperones for the youngsters may take notice.
The walk leading to the front porch is shades of purple, pink and white thanks to the planting of Ornamental Kale.
These plants are interesting all season but take on their vibrant color when the temperature begin to drop.
Most of the trees in our yard have dropped their leaves. But the Japanese Maples still bear their crimson foliage.
A sweet witch, crafted by a local artist, greets visitors at the front door. She has added spirit to my porch for a number of Halloweens.
The ornamental gourds on her hat have been replaced since the birds keep sampling the fruit. I'm sure they are surprised when they don't get a tasty morsel after all of their work!
A simple greeting . . .
punctuated by a black cat and a ghost.
