Is It Too Early to Decorate for Halloween?

The summer is winding down here. Temperatures have been going down into the fifties at night! Horse balnkies were sent out for cleaning this morning. Our resident woodchuck is a tank and the hummingbirds are starting to go into training for their annual migration.

Fall is in the air.

It's the time of year when you start to want to bake
and be in the warmth and comfort of your kitchen.

I've been following a blog by an amazing woman at OctoberFarm.
I don't even know her name, but the recipes are A M A Z I N G !

recipe was tried here yesterday.
Very good, but a little over cooked, 
I'll adjust my time the next time.

Have you started decorating for Halloween yet?
I have.

Decorations are popping up everywhere.


and out!

It's a time of transition.

And now there's something to remind me
to stop, live in the moment

and savor the change
that is all life.

"To be interested in the changing seasons
is a happier state of mind than to be
hopelessly in love with spring."
~ George Santayana

So, do you think that August 18th
is too early to start decorating for Halloween?

When do you start?


  1. LOL! You can start decorating any old time you want to. All the Halloween magazines are out in the stores, making us all eager for the season. I know there are a lot of people in the blog world who have started decorating. You go, girl!
    I saw that Pecan Shortbread too on OctoberFarm (who has definitely started decorating for Halloween) Her name is Joyce and she is THE Halloween Queen,lol! Love your decorations, btw. I probably won't start decorating till after Mabon (Fall Equinox).
