I have this branch that I painted black and stuck it in a black pot for a Halloween decor for outside. I usually have a black crow that sits on one of the branches, but this year I put that crow on a birdcage inside my house. I went to the store today to buy another crow for outside. I bought some spiders, pumpkins and a mouse, but no black crow (the store didn't have one). I love Halloween stuff. I don't like the gory Halloween and not the hooky Halloween, but I love the classic Halloween stuff, like the spiders, witches, crows, bats, cauldrons, potions and all the beautiful colors of the pumpkins and leaves and dark nights with full moons and bright stars. There have been a couple of times where we will be sitting in our living room and see someone out the window, usually it is a little kid, walk up to the crow on the branch to see if it is real. So to keep up with the good times I'll keep looking for that special crow to be a permanent adornment for our black branch.
