I needed something to cheer myself up today. My first thought was to go to a dollar store and get some cheap Halloween decorations. Then I thought, don’t be silly! Go to Pumpkin Junction in Sauquoit and get some good stuff! For one reason, in addition to being good quality, it is quite reasonably priced. Also, I thought it would make a good blog post.
It is a beautiful drive to Pumpkin Junction. I take Higby Road out of Frankfort to Graffenburg Road. I saw lots of color in the trees, and a few Halloween decorations in people’s yards.
Just walking around Pumpkin Junction is like exploring a haunted house. I took a few pictures of some ghouls upstairs.
A couple of charming fellows.
There are also a lot of costumes upstairs. Do I need something new to wear this year? Could be.
I may have a hat like that.
I was more interested in taking pictures of the ghouls than the costumes.
Another sweet pumpkin head and friend.
I stopped taking pictures when I went downstairs, because I was busy shopping. I hope to convince my friend, Kim, to return with me this weekend. I’ll take more pictures then. In the meantime, here are a couple shots of the new decorations I purchased today.
I have always wanted one of those skeletons coming out of the ground!
The skeleton and gravestone are new; the dead plant is from my container garden.
I’ll try to get one of her lighted up.
We got Witchy at Pumpkin Junction a few years ago,
The other side of the porch.
You can’t quite see the new ghoul hanging on the side of the porch roof. I suppose I had better go out and get another picture.
Well, that didn’t turn out very well.
At least you can see some nice clouds. A cloudy night is Halloweeny, I always think.
