Hello! I'd like you to meet my favorite Scarecrow, Miss Gertrude the Garden Goddess!  She is my favorite creation that I found at our Arboretum.  The place was all decked out with all sorts of spooky things and pumpkins every where!

The pumpkin house was really cute and the kids (big and little) loved it!

These Wizard of Oz scarecrows were just downright weird and alien looking!

The day couldn't have been more perfect!  Gorgeous blue skies, with no clouds in sight. It was really a gift!

I loved this scarecrow too! A Crow Scarecrow!! Amazing!

This had to be the spookiest scarecrow of all!  Wouldn't want to meet him in the dark!

There were Gardener scarecrows........

And there were scarecrows that were just unusual!

Goofy scarecrows......

Ethereal scarecrows......

Even the sculptures got into the act with some pumpkins... sorry I can't remember the name of these gals... Now I'm going to shut up and let you enjoy the photos and the spooky music.  If you don't like a particular selection, just go up to the Soundcloud widget and click on down the selections for something else.

Hope you enjoyed your virtual visit almost as much as I enjoyed my real one!

Happy Halloween to be!!

  16. Diane,
    The pictures you have taken are so beautiful, and really show all the colors of this glorious season of Autumn. I see you have the golds and the oranges and the even the reds where you live also. I hope you are enjoying the month of November.
