"All Through the Desert..."

...this day 'fore Halloween...
Cacti tried on their costumes
which were really nifty keen!

The Mesquite are adorned with bitty berries bright...
Hoping the Hallowed Eve's moon
makes them glooow in the night.

Mr. Coyote skulks about...um, not just one...but a few...
No scary masks are needed
for their hooowling will do!

Hark! Tomorrow's the day when hobgoblins are born...
Just watch out for those tricksters
who steal candy corn!

So, however you may dress up...or maybe, not at all...
Have fun with the celebrations
of this season of Fall!

Fantastic, Peg! Very clever bringing in the themes together in your own unique style. Your creativity is endless!

BTW: remember my lovely red notebook which I wish I'd bought more of? Well, I found it again :-)
And this time I bought 4!! 2 red and 2 silver gray. The brand is nightingale.

Bravo! Will be missing out on the tricksters since we'll be off camping, but maybe we'll get some of those hooowling coyotes. Thanks for the Halloween spirit!

I really like your Autumn series. The colors are great(my favorite earthy kinds) and the theme with the pumpkins, and leafless trees, and pebbles... they are great! I like how you maintain your style, the shadings and the negative space at the back. Absolutely unique and pleasing to the eyes ^^
