I am a Halloween failure. I have not put one Halloween or fall decoration in, on or near my house. You won’t find so much as a pumpkin donning our front stoop.
I’m not a total scrooge (can you use that term in reference to holidays other than Christmas?), it’s just that we live in a fairly remote area. We have a lot of neighbors, but it’s a small neighborhood and the only kids left are past their trick-or-treating years (or at least past wanting to trick-or-treat in our neighborhood; if they do it at all I’m sure they head into town for maximum candy-gathering potential). And since our house is set back from the road, no one ever really sees it unless they are coming over. And I just didn’t think the UPS guy would care if I decorated or not.
So I have no great autumn containers of my own to show you and no great Halloween crafts you can do (I’m sure if I did they would involve spray paint).
Fortunately, the rest of the blogging world isn’t nearly so lame. So I leave you with these beautiful yet scary containers from the master of container design (my label, not hers) Deborah Silver.

And because the zombie apocalypse is no laughing matter, I turned to one of my favorite gardening gurus, P. Allen Smith, for some tips on surviving.
Great use of containers – you've given me some ideas. You should post on Pinterest.
Too funny! And I love the containers – no cheap and cheerful Halloween decorations for you!!
I didn't do anything either, except for a dorky looking pumpkin carved on Halloween night. I don't really get into it! I know, totally sacrilegious.
