Halloween - What happened to Summer?

Well here I am at the end of 2010 and as you can see I posted no garden pictures for the Summer of 2010. I dug deep in the vault of pictures and NOTHING. Well, no need to throw in the towel yet. I have some really wonderful outside shots for this month (October). Kelly and I go all out decorating our yard for Halloween so I'm adding those pictures here since the heavily feature the yard. 

I have a few weeds now lingering in the Front Window Garden area, but it adds to the creepiness of Halloween, and that is the excuse I'm going with :)  If you look closely to the right you can see the pine tree totally browning up. This is not supposed to be happening, especially in October. The pine trees at the front windows definitely have something going on with them. It's a good reason to pull them up. 

Check out our AWESOME green pond, lol. Also not done on purpose for Halloween, just a crazy spurt of algae growing. I actually added a bail of Barley? Hay? ummm yeah, one of those and it cleared right up. Learning curve here, learning curve. Also, my cat Pookie made an appearance :) She is cute! This is her first year in this house. I had her shipped over from NY hahaha.

I added this picture because in the back you can see the new bed Kelly put in. I love it and it will make a great addition for the 2011 planting season. I can't make promises that I will have pictures and proof of that growing season, but I sure will try.  The next few pictures are added just for kicks. Grown adults dressed up for Halloween that have no kids!! What is wrong with these people, lol? 

Gotta love this. Kelly loved dressing up as DRACULA, what a hoot. Blood anyone? Maybe a dead one tree?

Stay tuned for updates. Hope to get more pictures up soon...
