School is well underway and the weather is starting to get cooler. In the Shepard and Woodridge neighborhoods these last several weeks fall has started to wrap the scenery in rich oranges and reds. Leaves weren’t the only thing scattering front lawns, but also pumpkins, ghosts and ghouls as the communities got into the Halloween spirit.

On Saturday October 23, driving down some of the neighborhood streets with the windows down, rolling over all the acorns, was like driving down a long sheet of bubble wrap. There was a distinct popping noise as the tires rolled over the nuts the squirrels hadn’t gotten to yet.

Following are a few pictures of the Halloween decorations and gorgeous autumn speckled yards of the Shepard/Woodridge area.

Happy Halloween and we will see you in the neighborhood!
