Unusual Front Gardens #14: Halloween


The Lle Hari restaurant in Llanrwst has had a lot of fun decorating its windowboxes along seasonal lines. They've also made a haunted hotel video to really get you in the mood!


Across the road they've continued with the Halloween theme by creating a pumpkin graveyard. I particularly like the wellies. It would be great to go back to see if the pumpkins are lit up at night - spooky.

Karen, Dobby and I had a lot of fun exploring all the features of these unusual front gardens on our way back from Bodnant a couple of weeks ago. But the biggest smile of all was on the face of the elderly lady we saw in a wheelchair, who was totally captivated by the scene.

  1. Brilliant! We haven't got anything like this near us. Maybe I'll do something next year...

    1. It's the first time I've found Halloween in a garden context I use here on Veg Plotting - I was delighted!

    1. Hi Janet - Bodnant will most probably be drip fed in snippets, just like the rain we had on the day! I see you've already found the bench :)

  3. And it stopped raining whilst we admired it all!

  5. I suppose you could make these with those flat yoghurt tubs too. Not as pretty but you could just keep replacing them,

    1. Hi Sue, not quite sure what you're thinking of making... I'm intrigued :)
