The Graveyard in My Yard

Welcome to our garden. We hope you'll never want to leave. Take off your coat. Put down your bag. Have some tea with Baba Yag.

Cyril is our cook. Not a big eater himself, he's very adept at finding ingredients by foraging in the hydrangea.
The kids love playing outside.

Cousin Jessica and her new husband always make spirited conversation.

Uncle Marcus met his demise. Cooking eggs, he got fried.

Brother Billy's life was full. Til he tried to milk a bull.

Here's my nephew, Kevin O'Toole. He thought it was cool to smoke at school.

Meet my grandpa, George MacBeth. He roams for want of another breath.

Dear Aunt Mary, quite contrary. How does your garden grow?
Quite well, I bet, since it is fed by your body down below...


Try to forget what you might have heard. You'll be back. Mark my word.
Happy Halloween!

Hi Tina, and welcome!! You have a cute dog.

Joanne, the jackolanterns were carved by my son and my husband - I'll pass on the compliment! :-)
