My neighbors’ outdoor Halloween decorating is impressive.
I went outside and took some photos of John’s yard/patio that’s just across from my own yard.
It’s John’s space. Remember the guy who has the dog, Boomer?
I recall that John told me last spring how much he loves Halloween.
His entire backyard space is all about Halloween.
Ghosts & Goblins:
That white ghost is especially dramatic and fun.
Then there’s the lantern hanging from the tree. And another poor lost soul dressed up in green and hanging from the top of the porch.
Ghosts and goblins are evidently all the rage around here right now.
I haven’t been out and about to check other yards.
So I looked on the Facebook page for this complex and found a few more photos to show you.
The neighbors go all out when it comes to their yards.
I’m not sure, but I think this may be Marie’s yard across the way and down a bit. She does a wonderful job fixing up her space and is often seen working in her yard.
I remember she told me that her son helped her erect this fence to showcase her yard.
The Complexity Of My Own Yard:
I’d love to have a fence as well. But I don’t know how that would work with the large part of my yard that is raised.
That part of this yard has befuddled me often. I just can’t figure out quite what to do with it.
I’m pretty sure I’m the only resident with the predicament of having a raised yard.
And while I can be creative with my outdoor space, this yard is just problematic. Especially with my ankle.
I don’t know whose patio/yard space this belongs to. But it was also on Facebook a few days ago.
I’ve never really bothered decorating for Halloween, indoor or outdoor. Though I do recall decorating a little for Halloween while in Texas.
There I had a closed courtyard with a fence, and it was fun to decorate.
I might have to start decorating my own outdoor space for holidays when I can get around better. Maybe next year.
Because the competition to have the best yard is tough around here!
