Nick and I went to see our son, Andy in Boston this past weekend. It seems that the trees in the east are refusing to give up their summer green too. The Public Garden did have a couple colorful ones.
Of course since it's close to Halloween we had to visit the new statue of Edgar Allan Poe.
Though I have to admit that I find "The Raven" both brilliant and a little cheesy in parts.
That's our son and his girlfriend behind the raven, patiently humoring me.
Hey, what are parents for if not to embarrass their kids now and then?
Another sign of fall on our walk.
Meanwhile back at home Burt was making himself useful with the Raven related decorations.
It took me three years of after Halloween sales to assemble this wreath. The black silk roses and metal Happy Halloween part came from Target and I found the ravens at Tuesday Morning.
Burt decided he looked cool with a raven on this head.
Time to fill up the raven candy bowl.
Ravens for the mantle. It's been cold and rainy all week, leaving poor Burt . . .
. . . chilled to the bone!
Finally, a good use for the velvet pumpkins!
Moving on to the dining room always in need of a few lights and garland.
Another find from an after Halloween sale at Target a few years ago. It says "Stop in for a Spell" but the "S's" look like "G's" so we put it up high and just tell anyone who asks what it says.
Here's the Halloween Village.
I'm joining Marfi at Incipient Wings for Haunted Humpday VIII
Happy Haunted Humpday to all!
