Expect the Unexpected

I was going to do a Halloween post but thought that would be a bit predictable for me. I decide to take some pictures at dusk. Above is 'my' Linden tree. It looks quite sculptural against the sky with the backdrop of telephone cables!

The plants take on a delicate silhouette against the sky. The sun is about to go down and the sky is momentarily blue.

A pretty little cluster of flowers against its shrubby leaves.

A massive rain cloud comes in from a South Easterly direction towards the West.

Outside my house. Who needs pumpkins and ghouls, witches and bats, cauldrons and spells when a house looks as scary as mine does. I should think the trick or treaters will be staying well away. Now where did I put my broom..........................!

Your photos are very atmospheric - and your poor linden tree looks stunning against that dark blue sky. I think those trick or treaters may think twice about knocking at your door - is your broom ready?:)

I am glad no trick or treaters discovered my ceramic pumpkin in the porch. No sweets for them. All I had to offer was a couple of digestive biscuits left in the bottom of the packet! x

PS. Your house does look pretty scary.
