August  2, 2014

Wind chimes announce the arrival of a sharp hint of autumn air; as do the orange mums that sway like awkward children beside licorice-scented marigolds and winter-berry holly leaves that sift to the ground in each lifted breeze.

"Fall leaves, Fall flowers, sway ;
lengthen night and shorten day
  Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the Autumn trees."
-----Emily Bronte

With fall just around the corner; I thought it was time to introduce the first of my fall  spooks.  These little munchkins make great collectibles; 12 -13 inches tall from hat to bottom of skirts.
