Due to my limited indoor space and lack of a garage, most of my Halloween props are constructed outside. And living as I do in a northern climate, outdoor prop construction is definitely not a year-round activity. Which means that each year, with the opening buds, greening grass, and rising temperatures, my thoughts turn to Halloween.
This spring, unfortunately, has been unusually cold. Hence, both my tulips and my Halloween progress have been delayed. But finally, this weekend has seen sunshine and warmth and the emergence of buds and tulips. And most importantly, the opening of the shed-of-forgotten-and-neglected-prop-materials.
Not a moment too soon. Only six months remain.
