In the travels of last week, we stopped by one home that had such an assortment of an autumn themed garden. Not only the gorgeous trees, like this first photo of a liquid amber, but a cute outhouse, hay wagon, scarecrows, beautiful fall flowers, and just too many odds and ends to list them all here. I put a couple of photos of it on Facebook, if you follow me on there. The family all came out when they saw us out in front......first the son, visiting from Chicago, then his mother, then his son, then the father, then the daughter.....and then the family dog. One by one and we all had a great gab-fest. Such nice people! And they do it up for Christmas also, so I'll be hoping to see that come December.....
The second photo is of a group of fishermen taking off on one part of the Umpqua River. And the third photo is of one I took of the river from an overpass........I usually don't put my own photos on my computer's desktop but this one I had to........It's so beautiful! And it was a beautiful day.

The various parents were pretty funny, too. They almost always had to tell the younger ones to say "Trick or Treat".....which translated into "Twick or Tweet".........then there was the duty "Thank You".
A tall young girl dressed up like Little Boo Peep, gave a very deep voiced thanks that had me commenting on The Voice.........When he told me a bit defensively "I'm a boy!".
After I gave one little one his treats with his father standing there with him when I saw a flash from out on the street. I said "Oh, picture taking?" And the young father said in a bit of a tired reply "Of course"........guess Mom makes happy and frequent use of her camera! Another pre-teen boy suggested I give him ALL the candy.......then gave a thank you and a "God Bless". I wondered whether he knew it was a heathen holiday.......8-))
Now we are left with about a couple of dozen little candy bars and/or packages of M&M's. Hmmm.....I wonder what we're going to do with them? It is a dilemma.........
chrysanthemum grows in our garden. It seems to be a prolific producer........And the beautiful variegated cyclamen was given to us by a friend, Sarah..........I've never seen one like this before with the variegated leaves and the very deep dark red blooms. I think we've found the perfect place for it and enjoy watching it thrive.......Fingers crossed that I don't do anything to change that.
