Pumpkin Heads and Critters

Let's start with a couple of pumpkin people in Woodstock. That town holds a contest of pumpkin-headed figures. 

Here's a deer who looks like he's wearing a bowtie. Halloween costume?

This goose has been drinking out of my mini birdbath again.

Today we had rain but in the afternoon I drove to Fort Valley, where I saw a Mennonite carriage and horse. 

Today's final picture is from earlier today. The great blue heron was  across the lake. I had to zoom in all the way to get his picture. 



  1. Hello,
    Love the pumpkin people, Happy Halloween. The deer is so pretty, I love seeing them. The goose is cute, looking for a drink. I have seen a similar carriage and horse in our local Walmart parking lot. Great shot of the GB Heron. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Sunday, enjoy your day and new week! PS, thank you for leaving me a comment.

  2. Pumpkin-headed figures? I can think of a loud, obnoxious former politician who would win hands down!

  3. ...the horse want to see you!

  4. LoL. The goose thinks "great, a bowl sized just for me".

  5. Like the deer in a bow tie LOL.

  6. Loved the entire series today...from the goose to the heron and the Amish wagon with horse! All a treasure.
    Thanks for linking in this week.

    Ps...laughing at David's comment

  7. Interesting photos!
    The deer is my favorite
    Have a blessed day!

  8. Happy 🎃 Halloween and it's always fun to see the pumpkin figures or scarecrows that decorate many New England towns this time of year. It's too bad they will soon disappear when early November comes around as they are great fun.

  9. The deer came all dressed up. :)
    Happy Halloween.
