JNW’s Hallowe’en Challenge: Day 23 – Forest/Plants

This is JNW’s Hallowe’en Challenge, “31 days, 31 topics. Share a photo, drawing, story, poem, quote, etc. every day of October. Each day there will be a new topic, but if you prefer to stray from the topics, as long as your post is Halloween oriented, it counts!”  And this is my post for Day 23:  Forest/Plants (https://jennifernicholewells.com/2016/10/23/jnws-halloween-challenge-forestplants/)

I like taking pictures of trees, especially in the winter.  It doesn’t take a lot to make them look spooky…

JNW’s Hallowe’en Challenge: Day Seven – Corn Maze/Hay Ride

This is JNW’s Hallowe’en Challenge, “31 days, 31 topics. Share a photo, drawing, story, poem, quote, etc. every day of October. Each day there will be a new topic, but if you prefer to stray from the topics, as long as your post is Halloween oriented, it counts!”  And this is my post for Day 7:  Corn Maze/Hay Ride  (https://jennifernicholewells.com/2016/10/08/jnws-halloween-challenge-corn-mazehay-ride/)

Ok.  I confess. I don’t have a picture of a Corn or Hay Ride.  I know they do them around here (Hallowe’en is kind of a big thing here), but it’s raining (and I mean pissing rain) out, we have 5 family members staying here with us over Canadian Thanksgiving weekend, and this is my moment to drink coffee and blog before the prep for 13 at dinner tomorrow starts.  So, instead, here are some different Hallowe’eny pictures I took yesterday on our way to the airport to pick up folks.

Pumpkins as far as the eye can see!
