Seeing flowers stuck in the snow is still a difficult image to digest:
As is seeing my trusty Miscanthus ‘Gracillimus’ completely blanketed in snow. A nightmare come to life:
I find the autumn color with snow in the background disturbing:
And the pools of water/mud may put me into an early seasonal affect disorder coma:
Yet through it all, I found myself consumed with trying to snap off some bird photos and I never really got exactly what I was looking for:
But enough negativity, we did make the most of Halloween the past few days and kicked it all off with the greatest Halloween movie of all time:
Followed by “mummy dogs” (of which I downed four with ease):
Cheese stick fingers:
Spider deviled eggs:
Ghost punch (commonly known as sugar water or drink to make kids act like nutjobs) :
And finally ghost cookies :
And last but not least, off to trick or treat in the snow with my son dressed up like Harry Potter and my daughter dressed up as a hybrid rock star/hippie:
Good times in spite of the strange weather conditions and resulting state of emergency. Oh well, we can’t complain too much as we’ve managed to not lose electricity and have been able to share our heat and allow our friends to shower here.
This Halloween will not be forgotten any time soon.
