Happy Halloween

Well I don’t expect many trick or treaters this year for sure, but what we have had instead has been better.

We live on quite a big housing estate- albiet with lots of green spaces, a terrific view and three children’s playgrounds. Everyone I have met has been friendly and in the warmer weather I had some nice chats with neighbours. I will be honest I’d been looking forward to halloween this year and lots of children dressed up calling for treats, but clearly that was not going to be.

Then I found that the area I live in has its own Facebook page, and via that a witchery scarecrow trail had been made- I was too late to join in and make a scarecrow but I have put up some things I had made in previous years- not that anyone other than my immediate neighbour, the postman and family will see them- but I have tried to join in.

What has been an absolute joy for the last week is that when I have ventured out there have been little groups of adults and children doing the round and scarecrow spotting. People have been commenting on Facebook about how much their children have enjoyed it.

Of course I have had a walk round to see some of the scarecrows- we all can vote for our three favourite ones. So here are my favourites so far..

The one next door- I shall certainly vote for him.

Master T’s favourite- the ghost in the tree.
Gareth Bale ( nb in you case you don’t get this, Gareh Bale is a footballer and this guy is sat on a hay bale). It made me chuckle.
Bet you all know who this is!
Love this one- my second favourite.

This last one is my absolute favourite.

Trainee do we think or just had one too many?

Happy Halloween, hope your neighbourhood has made an effort this year, we all need a bit of frivolity from time to time.

    what fun! to have moved into a neighbourhood where you’ll be able to put on a Hallowe’en display each year!

  7. Some creative scarecrows there. A great idea. I wonder if they will do something similar for Christmas? X

  8. Love these piccies as my complex doesn’t seem to be doing anything, but peeps here never do. I guess apartment dwellers are a different breed. ๐Ÿ‚ ๐ŸŽƒ ๐Ÿ‘ป ๐Ÿง™โ€โ™€๏ธ ๐Ÿ‚

  9. What a FANTASTIC idea!!! they are all awesome – the Oogie Boogie Man must have been a lot of work to get him to stand like that!! It’s so cool how much work and detail was put into all of this. Wow. You live in a fantastic area! ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy Halloween to you.

    • It has really brought everyone together, and so good seeing the families walk round. i wonder what people will do for Christmas now.

  10. These are brilliant! People are making more of an effort with their Halloween decorations here this year. Iโ€™m just waiting for the rain to stop and the wind to drop before we finish ours.

  11. The first one is very cheeky ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜‰

  12. Some are fab! Love the last one too – as if they flew in on a broom and missed where they should land! ha ha!

  13. Happy Halloween, Cathy!

    I love all of these pictures. I hope you can get in on the fun next year!
