Rain Rain Go Away....

you have ruined my pumpkin display.  Sad day. The oh-so-cute arrangement that once seemed so welcoming at my front door has now suffered greatly due to the never-ending rain we have had for 3 days. Don't get me wrong. I am thankful for the liquid sunshine but my poor fall decor will never be the same.  I arrived home from work last night (after an exhausting 13 hour shift and an alarm system debaucle, mind you) to find that the great cinderella pumpkin had tumbled from its resting place on the mound of hay to land right in the middle of my beautiful mum. Tragedy. The mum is broken and so is my heart. I worked hard to keep those plants alive for 2 weeks and now all the rain is killing them. The broken mum is propped up against the bale of hay. Maybe no one will notice its crushed backside and gaping hole on the top. Ha! The hay is so soggy it can no longer support the weight of the cinderella pumpkin so now it is unhappily residing on the ground. The cute scarecrow sign blew away in the wind. After an extensive search with only a fierce lightning storm to light up the yard, I finally found the little sign stuck in a bush. A small victory.

I didn't think I could share a picture, but the rain let up for a second so I just ran outside to snap a quick pic. We can all mourn together!


  1. Oh I am sorry, hopefully you will get a bit of wind and sunshine so the hay will dry out before Halloween or this look may just add to the spirit of Halloween.......:-) Hugs

  2. Hope by now that you are drying out. My two favorites are the dark orange and white pumpkins. You created a nice fall welcome. Thanks for sharing. ♥♫
