A still life of pumpkins took a dramatic turn when a daylight scene turned into a misty moon-lit evening sky and overhead well – a crying shrill could be heard from the local witch riding her broom. “Ah my little ones . . .”
Here is to all those little ghosts and goblins who will “Trick or Treat” ~ Happy Halloween!
