It's Haunted Season in the neighborhood.
Actually, I'm haunted this (election) season by scarier things than spider webs, old houses, and cars buried in leaves.... but none of that makes good blogging material. So on walks, I look for things to smile about -- that way, at least I'll have a chance at a good night's sleep.
I went back to the archives for these bird pictures -- because Vultures are simply the best Halloween birds ever.
Look alive now!
We don't see vultures often here in Oregon (they're here -- we're just not in the right neighborhood)... these guys haunted us in Florida last season.
Seasonal color of the non-haunted kind -- all from walks around our Oregon neighborhood last week. Every year, I wonder what becomes of all the pumpkins you see at the grocery stores and supermarkets -- they really don't seem to sell that many.
We also saw this sign at the Saturday Farmer's Market:
This vendor sold catnip and other pot herbs -- not that kind of pot (at least not that we recognized). Although that kind did become legal in Oregon last year. (As far as I know, catnip has always been legal.)
