Here are my fall/Halloween decorations. This one is in front of the front deck. There are orange lights on the railing and the large pumpkin lights up as well as the pumpkin stack on the other side.

This display is by my raised bed vegetable garden.

The wind has been blowing pretty good lately so they are not looking as nice right now. But we live on a dead end road so not many people drive by to see them. I grew the corn, the squash and all the pumpkins in my gardens.

This one is by the walk-in garage door. I did not grow the gourds or the red berries. They are store bought.

Thanks Vickie. The straw bales were some that my DH grew this year.

Yes, I noticed that the straw was kind of sticking out all over and not all neat like I remember when I helped bale straw 45 years ago, lol! I really like the way your bales look in the arrangement Thumbs up

Thanks Sandy. I'm glad you like it. It helps when you grow almost all the things yourself. I only wish more people could see it. Living on a dead end road has its short comings. I wish I had just as nice a Christmas scene but I don't. I will try to do something like I do every year.

Jeanne, I know what you mean about living on a dead-end road; I don't, but you can't see our house from the road at all, because our driveway curves and our yard is completely surrounded by tall evergreen trees. I've always thought it would be a lot of fun to really decorate the place for the Christmas season ... but only put a few lights up on the deck railing and that sort of thing because so few people ever see them. Shrug!

We are at the end of the walkway and I have a limited space to show the halloween decors. But I do put them up every year, just so the kids know then can safely knock and get their treats Smiling

Closer look of the two topiaries with decor:

My artificial pumpkins as usual by the low adobe wall, beside our cycad. I just add strobe lights later so it casts an eerie night time glow:

So the kids can see from the far end of the walkway:

On the other end, so they can see if this particular walkway has something for them:

Our front windows are ready to greet them too: I just turned around the orange boo decor so it can be seen on the photo, but it is really placed facing out, two clivia plants flanking both windows, well, that is their normal growing area indoors. By the window there are LED battery powered candles with sensors that light up at night. Have added two halloween solar dancing decors there a zombie and scarecrow solar decor, so during daytime it dances along with the other solar decors.

The grim reaper at the doorway, it makes an eerie Happy Halloween greeting with flashing red eyes, motion sensitive:

I do hope the kids can make it tonight, hope the rains will not deter them. Otherwise we will get the sugar high with the chocolates we have here. Hilarious!

Tarev, I love your decorations... but this last part gave me such a laugh! Around the beginning of September my husband usually will say something like "we should buy some Halloween candy" -- by the time Oct. 31 finally arrives we've bought candy 3 or 4 times, despite the fact that we NEVER get any trick-or-treaters where we live. Rolling my eyes.

Happy Halloween all you Goblin gardeners. Rolling on the floor laughing

Great Halloween decorations Tarev and Judy. Loved them. Lovey dubby

Thanks Sharon if you meant my d├ęcor. I will probably leave it except the Halloween stuff until after Thanksgiving and then will take it down to decorate for Christmas. I really don't have many Christmas stuff. It usually got too cold by the time I was to put stuff out that I just never really got things bought. We'll see what this year brings. I really need to put out lights now while it is warmer so they aren't so stiff.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!
