The Party's Over. . .

This is some of the aftermath of 100,000 people in the streets of Salem on Halloween night. They were EVERYWHERE, and keeping some semblance of decorum was pretty much out of the question. Some of the casualties were the mums in our planter boxes out front.

They were obviously mistaken for benches.

. . .and at least one appears to have gone home as a souvenir. Do people have any idea how hard it is to find winter-hardy, matching yellow mums this late in the season around here to replace all of these?
Next year, barricades. Maybe with pointy sticks and broken glass on the top of them. Grrr. . . .

    Of course they do ... that's why some of yours are missing ... People are sometimes quite inconsiderate ... I'm saddened to see the loss but glad to see you've survived the invasion!
