Bohemian summer garden party. Thorns and roses and succulents. The way it should be.
Miniature cork Christmas trees! Some people are just too darn clever. (And what a great way to show off your “special” corks.)
Shrunken Head Apple Cider. Recipe and directions from Martha Stewart, at the link.

While we were removing all the summer annual beds and container gardens for my clients today, I could not resist taking pictures of some of their ever-so-fabulous Halloween decorations.
The Tarantula is about 8’ in diameter, and there are five of them now crawling across the front of this house. The witch lifts her head off of her shoulders while you wait for someone to answer the door bell. So much fun! (I am definitely going trick-or-treating this year.)
The cutting garden, indoors. A collection of small colored vases from the thrift shop, a handful of posies from the cutting garden…equal a brilliant display garden inside your home. Simple beauty.
