What's out and about this Halloween?
Come along and see some "hauntingly creative" yards and porches.
Pumpkins and gourds are the first sign of Autumn.
Doors of Welcome usher in the Fall Season around neighborhoods.
But Halloween brings the scary scene.
A couple of yards full of "boo-tiful" whimsey.
And others with a more frightful touch!
One of my favorites ~ a nod to "south of the border".
Same creative folks gave a nod to the Texas Longhorns last year.
"Hook em Horns"
I don't think I'd like to get caught up in this web!
What fun Halloween vignettes have you seen this season in your neighborhoods?

Black Cat, Black Cat
Black cat, Black cat
Looking for a witch.
All around the
Night is dark as pitch.
You can see because
Your eyes are green.
Black cat, Black cat
This is Halloween!
Black cats and witches seem to go together at Halloween, and we've a few who have taken up residence here at HFTS.
Little Miss can usually be found in the the pumpkin patch.
While Cyrus gleefully bounces about in Miss Sadie's basket. No brooms for this pair.
Many of these guys like to lounge around on the bare branches of this spooky tree.
You can read about a recent dinner party they attended here.
A Halloween Tail
Black cat prowling, stalking slow
Its shadow appeared in the pumpkin's glow.
Arched and stretching its silhouette,
It gave a yowl I can't forget.
On Halloween night, frightened as could be,
That sight and sound sent chills through me.
I still remember and it makes me smile,
What happened next put me in denial.
For there on the porch, as cute as could be
Was the neighbor's kitten for all to see.
We have costumed kiddies
and rolly polly kitties.
Black Cats on wheels and Black Cats that sing.
There is the Witch Cat found among the pages of this old English tale and . . .
This precious little Black Cat creeps through the pages of this charming little Cuddle & Read story about Halloween Night. If you have little ones at home I highly recommend this precious story.

As the sun hangs low the witches begin to gather.
There're flying in from all around, with faithful black cats along side.
Offering bits of cheese with fresh picked figs.
A spooky tree centers the evening table.
Each will hover above their witch who dines below.
Shiny black dinnerware sets the stage.
Soup bowls filled with pumpkins soon will hold the cauldron soup.
Mini Jacks light the way . . .
With cones to mark each witch's spot.
A simple meal of salad and soup is the dining wish for Witch Night Out.
Ghouls and goblins watch with delight as witches gather to fill their plates.
At dinner's end the sweet course begins . . .
And a scoop of corn for the return flight.
A pail of treats for each as they fly off into the night.
Traveling safely home by the light of the moon.
