Premonitions of a haunted Halloween

Black cats and pumpkin patches portend my favorite time of year...

Edit: I should add, for our Fox Valley readers, that these were taken at Polly's Pumpkin Patch on Hwy 57, half a mile north of Chilton. It's an absolutely charming, family-owned farm that has an amazing selection of pumpkins, as well as any number of very friendly dogs, cats, and people.

Disclaimer: I was not in any way asked to make this endorsement; I just buy my pumpkins there every year.
