Haunted by Halloween Decorations

Each year since I moved to this area, I've taken photos of the Halloween decorations on the streets where I walked Una. On our last walk together, I took a few. Then, twice after she died, I took a walk with Kung Fu Panda and took some more. Walking has always been good for me, and it will be a good habit for KFP, too, even if for now, with just the two of us, it seems a little lonely.

Ready for a Walk
Kung Fu Panda in his Baby Bjorn,
ready for a walk around the neighborhood.

Scarecrow in the Marigolds
A scarecrow guards a marigold garden.

Scarecrow Garden
A scarecrow garden, consisting of cloth flowers,
plastic pumpkins, and two scarecrows.

Scarecrow Closeup
A closeup of one of the scarecrows from the scarecrow garden.

Vampire and Witch
These cloth vampire and witch decorations greeted visitors
to a home that is for sale. To scare buyers away?

Skeleton in the Bushes
Don't look now: there's a skeleton in the bushes!

Jack-o-lantern with Glasses
A wooden jack-o-lantern with pink granny glasses is in great spirits.

Benched Scarecrow
A miniature scarecrow with two mini jack-o-lanterns
relaxes on a bench only as high as a cement step (to the left).

Going All Out
The owner of this house never saw a fall or Halloween decoration she didn't like.

Scarecrow Ghost
Part scarecrow, part ghost, this decorated a stair railing.

Marker Jack-o-Lantern
A jack-o-lantern made by drawing a face
on a small pumpkin in marker.

Ghostly Hay Bale
A hay bale with two crows, a ghost, and several pumpkins.

One of two cloth crows stuck in a hay bale.

Ghost Witch
This lawn decoration has a witch head and a filmy ghostly body.

Cat and Bats
One of our windows, with a plastic hanging that features a black cat and bats.

Scarecrows have a good PR agent.
