  10. I see someone is as wild about Halloween as I am. I'm just in love with the fall colors of yellow, orange, and brown. Our fall colors on the farm will soon begin to show. It has been a dry summer, so hopefully they won't just drop off without showing their how spectacular it they can be. I'm jumping on board your blog. Love the inspiration. I'm on the other side of the country in N.C. Debi
