It's that time of year again and the children in our village are getting excited about our Halloween Party. And those of us that are still children at heart are equally excited!! We have 15 children in our court and with all the passing visitors it will be a wonderful sight to see them playing together- different ages, racial backgrounds and religions. And my world will feel right.

So first of all some ideas for decorating your garden! I think this design is very tasteful.

The Hero Image today is also by Debbie Criswell.

Thinking very much of community at the moment so coming up in the next blog we are going to take a look at another art community. This one formed at Camel-by-the-Sea, California in the early 1900s.

         Happy Halloween and don't eat too many
