The Week In Seven Photos

The wind was whipping this week and we finally have a few bare branches surrounded by delightful autumn color

as the leaves continue to fall.

Looking out into the yard it was a somewhat difficult decision to decide between throwing a Halloween party for the backyard visitors or working on the leaves.

The animals voted for a Halloween party and they enjoyed bobbing for walnuts,

a few pumpkins and

plenty of treats.

I haven’t dressed up for Halloween since elementary school, so I should completely understand someone not wanting to participate in some of the celebrations. Β While I was expecting a little reluctance by Harper attending her first Halloween party, I had no idea Sherlock “Harper” Holmes would take it to a new level and refuse to open her eyes until the costume was removed.

  1. Pure Harper, such a nice dress, but no, no, “I am a dog”. Huge colors in your trees, those red leaves are glowing.

    1. Thank you!😁 The fall colors are perfect right now and I’ll have more time to photograph them since Harper has made it perfectly clear she does not like dressing up or having her photo taken.😁


      1. Autocorrect made poor to pure, but you understood. Harper looks very cute when dressed.

    Oh those magnificent colours! πŸ˜€
    Love the little Halloween containers for the animals’ party. And little Harper is hilarious! Such a Diva! πŸ˜€

    1. Thank you!😁 It took the backyard animals a little bit to adjust to the pumpkins and the first few squirrels flew right off the table when they jumped up and we’re staring at a pumpkin with a hat.πŸŽƒπŸ˜ I still can’t believe Harper refused to open her eyes and I have a felling that, unlike the squirrels, she’s never going to adjust to photo shoots.😁

  3. Oh, too funny! Sherlock Harper was not impressed. Can’t blame her, really. Putting on costumes is for humans. πŸ˜‰

    1. Thank you!😁 She definitely does not want anymore clothes or costumes and Sherlock Harper is not going to be able to solve any mysteries if she refuses to open her eyes.😁

    Oh Harper! She had no clue…
    Wonderful and colourful collection! You know how to throw a Hallowe’en party, and even if Harper wasn’t playing, the other guests understood.
    Have a great weekend!

    1. Thank you!😁 Impossible for Harper to find any clues with those eyes closed and once she opened them it was with a look of how could you do that to me. I think I may have caused a few nightmares for the squirrels and Harper.😁 Hope it’s the Spurs weekend for a great win against Liverpool! Enjoy the weekend and hopefully an England win against New Zealand!πŸ™‚

    1. 😁. Thank you!😁 I think we have a few more days to enjoy the fall colors before the cold and rain arrives. Little Harper’s stubborn streak is growing and I’ve about given up on the outfits, but there is still a slight chance she’ll want a coat and some boots once the snow arrives.😁

    Clearly Harper needs to associate dressing up with yummy treats. πŸ˜‰ More practice needed!
    Great fall shots – have a great weekend!

    1. Thank you!😁 So far Harper is refusing to look at me, open her eyes and accept any form of bribery for a photo. We may have to revisit her modeling career when she’s a little older.😁 Enjoy the weekend!πŸ™‚

  8. Dear Watson,
    Evidently, Sherlock Holmes is a lot smarter than Watson. πŸ™‚

    1. 😁. It’s the beginning of a great partnership and my patience is equal to the task of Sherlock Harper’s stubborn smarts.!😁
