I was visiting the Botanic Gardens today, when I found this spooky collection of botanicals. From a distance I thought the jars held preserved creatures. The collection covered several walls, this is just a small sample, and it set the slightly creepy tone for the rest of my visit, as the sun began to fade. Round the corner was this sign, and I just couldn’t resist…
Okay…I know it’s meant for kids, but I had so much fun, trailing around through the tumbling leaves as the light faded. There was a great atmosphere, no one else around as they had all headed home, and it took me back to feeling about 10 years old again….which is good for anyone. In fact I had so much fun I thought I would share my adventure…
And we’re only half way round….it’s getting darker and a cold wind has picked up. Where has everyone gone?
We never did find the rest, but we stumbled on through the increasingly creepy trees in the gloomy twilight, until we reached the haunted house….
Would you dare to enter? Hope you enjoyed our Halloween trail in the haunted woods. Sweet dreams 🙂

They are gorgeous shots, the colours are amazing as well 🙂
Thanks…I think the fading light actually helped to highlight the orange of the pumpkins.
Love the pictures. Happy Halloween!
