Some Garden Halloween ?

OK .. so I finally took a quick walk through my very neglected garden .. almost a month now and healing is taking so slow I want to scream and scream and scream .. the neighbors wouldn't think anything of it actually .. this neighborhood is SPOOKY on its own !
So ... there it is .. the ugly truth ... my poor garden WAITING for me ! eeeekkkkk
Spiders have been given the thumbs up from every where .. normally I don't mind a few .. they catch naughty bugs right ? .. but it is getting out of hand .. it is frightening to think of walking face first in a huge web ! eeeeeeeeekkkkkkkkk !!
See .. I said SCARY ! .. is there an echo in here ??
I have to have some fun things in here ... strange how we determine what "fun" is eh ?
I think this annual variegated purple fountain grass is fun .. it screams "let me out of here !!"
I don't think a lot of people know about "Shadow Butterflies" ... I don't think I am supposed to post about them or talk about them .. so i better stop now .... but ... look out for them !!
I have "FlyGuys" all over the place .. they keep watching me while they are pretending to visit flowers .. but I know what they are up to .. it is a plan to conquer the world .. bit by bit !
I know this guy is pretending to sleep ... but I am wise to HIM !!
Halloween candy has to have the lime light right ? and garden Halloween candy is a natural : )
Chocolate ... right ....
I caught this anemone as it was leaping from one universe to the other and this is what they really look like .. and they are looking for JODI !!! eeeeeeeeeeeeekkkkkkkkkk !
OK .. I needed some cheering up .. I found this Halloween light box .. and it CHEERED me UP !!
See how cool this is ?? my new night light !!!!!!!!!!!
What could make a Halloween gal happier ... other than some chocolate right ??

Joy, that looks like a Hammock Web. You think I am really getting into this? I really don't like spiders, just know a lot about them. It is not very useful information for me but when you show something like the webs, all the spider info flows into my brain.

I went to the craft store today, ready to take a picture of hundreds of pumpkins, camera said "no memory card". I'll have to go back they were spectacular.

Super spooky there(-:
Love the Halloween Light(-: I am sooooooooooooooooooooo ready for Fall I want to SCREAM!!! Its 106 here today and everything is begging for Fall. Can you hear my plants screaming too? Poor things. Watering isn't helping either its so hot and dry here it would take a monsoon to fix things! Oh well!

Ha ha...what a fun post, Joy! Nice to see that you still have a wonderful sense of humour despite everything! Or have you completely gone mad? In any case, you're laughing...hysterically? Your garden still looks okay to me. Must be all those years of TLC you've given it. I hope you heal quickly, my dear friend. I would like that. Oh, and I love that Halloween night light. It's gorgeous. I took a ride to Home Sense yesterday and fell in love with one of the witches. I didn't buy it but I may return to pick it up. Can't get it out of my mind. That doll would be a perfect wife for my halloween skeleton, Mr. Bones. He needs a partner; he's rather lonely :)

Eileen you really do know a lot about a subject you don't care to meet with too much ? LOL .. that is truly funny: )
Oh NO !!!! I have done that too and it drives me mad ! I hope you get back there and I can see all of that gorgeous Halloween !!

Cindee girl I don't know how you are surviving that heat ... let alone your poor garden .. we are in for one more hot spell ourselves but we have had rain so it doesn't shock the plants too much I hope .. i wish I could have shared that with you girl !
Yup .. I just have to start dragging out more Halloween now ;-)

Martha girl : ) .. hum .. completely mad is a good description ? haha .. the little walk I had was amazing .. I have never .. never .. been away from the garden this long and it makes me ache .. John will work with me to try and tame things a bit .. but you know how it is when YOU want to get into it all yourself.
You have to have that witch girl and I think I know which one you are talking about !! She would be perfect ! .. it is beginning .. other fanatics are circling the Halloween shelves .. so get there soon and get that witch girl !!
It will make you all warm and fuzzy inside ;-) hehehehehe

No matter how frustrated you are with your health, dear Joy, your sense of humour seems to always prevail. I'm not ready to talk about Halloween yet, though. :-) But I prescribe chocolate, because it's a cure for pretty much anything.

How entertaining is this post? Very. Thanks for dropping by my blog, isn't Grace the greatest? I too enjoy Y & R.

*lol* Super Spooky, Joy! Especially that abandoned birdhouse. I can just hear the "ghosts" calling! I love that Halloween light. Very cool.

Jodi girl I know you are right about the chocolate cure for all evils ! LOL .. I loved your "fog" post it brought back a lot of fun memories as a kid in Louisbourg : )
I try to slow this obsession for Halloween down but it is an all consuming FUN monster so I can't help myself !!! ;-)

Hey there Darla and thank you ! Yes Grace is a card alright ! LOL
Halloween is my thing .. but I wear myself out by the time the real deal comes to town ? go figure ?LOL

Monica girl I swear I hear little ghostly tweets around that part of the garden .. and never see a real bird ..goose bump time ! hehehe
I am a sucker for anything Halloween and collect too much nonsense .. but it is too fun to give up so I am a slave to it all
