The porch is decorated for autumn

A favorite part of autumn is to decorate the porch.
I go to the flowershop with a head filled with ideas.
Some of the flowers I want are not there, new ideas meet my eyes,
and I come home with a totally new theme.
This year a basket quilt from my quilt collection craved the be used.
"Are you sure you want to stay outdoors at this time of the year?" I asked.
The quilt reassured me.
"It is autumn, and your wooden porch bench is the right place for me."

Looks as if it is the right place for the little rabbit as well! What a cosy place to be as the days grow shorter and the nights grow long. The charming quilt makes it even cosier!

Hi Britt,
I read your comment and came to see your porch decorated for fall. I love the Mr. Bunny. Cute whiskers. What is the white twiggy plant behind him? Is it some kind of cactus??
