Anyone got any good pictures suitable for Halloween 🎃?
Or
stories of ghostly matters around this season?

    Yes @Sandy_123 There are quite a few of these around the garden at the moment, I call it the season of the spider 🕷 and I call these particular ones Holy Cross spiders because they have a cross on their backs. Probably just called garden spiders ha ha. 

    You should tell us one of those stories, I’m sure people would be thrilled 😄

    I used to live close to a cemetery and on one of a walk round the outside of the cemetery I noticed an old man with a stick and flowers slowly walking along a path which lead to a group of grave stones near a large fence to the cemetery, he slowly made his way to the last grave, he then put down the flowers and lean up against the grave stone. After a while he fell on to his knees and looked as he was crying. I was a way off from the front gate but luckily there was a man and woman walking a dog in the cemetery, I waved to get there attention and told them about the old man falling down pointing to where he went down. They got to the grave stone but know one was there. There was no flowers placed on the grave it was empty. They asked if I had really seen anyone as even they had not seen anyone enter the graveyard or leave there was only one way in / out and they had not seen anyone...

    That's right @Grinchy :) 

    Thanks @Sandy_123! We had a lot of fun doing them. 

    Lovely pics @leeCal- I love the orange tones. I did try and take a picture of the moon last night, but my phone camera isn't good enough for it really. It just looked like a blurry blob.
