It’s no secret that we really have fun with Halloween here at the Garden Spot. Just one look at our cheerful pumpkin signs outside the store, and you can see our Halloween ‘spirit’. (yes that pun was totally intended) This week on our blog we shared how to grow garlic for those of you who need some help repelling vampires and other beasties this Halloween.
Another time-honored safeguard is the jack-o-lantern. A tradition that originated in Ireland and Scotland, carved turnips or potatoes were placed in windows or near doors to frighten away evil spirits. (Read more here) We got into the spirit of things this week, and painted up some pumpkins to ‘guard’ our nursery this month.
It’s quite a creative crew here at the Spot, and as you can see we decided to go glam with some of our pumpkins.
Everyone had a great time with this, and we hope to make this a new tradition and paint more pumpkins next year. What about you and your family? What sort of Halloween traditions do you enjoy?
This week we had some ghoul-ish-ly gorgeous photos posted on our Facebook page. This week’s winner is Krys Kirkwood.
You could be the winner next week. To enter, just post your favorite garden pictures to our Facebook page. Happy Haunting!
