Striding along in the cool, crisp air was beginning to improve Bunny’s mood, and she began to look around her with more interest.
There were many elaborately decorated homes, she noticed. She wondered if all of them had entered the contest. It would be hard work for the judges if they had.
Some of the decorating schemes were really quite clever.
Bunny especially liked the ones keeping to an autumn or harvest theme, with pumpkins and scarecrows. She positively shuddered at some of the ones which emphasized the dark side of Halloween, though, like the hanged man in the oak tree, for instance. It looked creepily realistic.
She wondered where people found such things and why anyone would spend good money on a replica of a human being dying so horribly.
These folks had not been satisfied with making a life-like hanged man; they had included nasty wounds and gore, as well.
Bunny hurried past the macabre tableau and turned her attention back to nature’s more lovely display.
The leaves on her block were radiant in their fall colors. There was a lush variety of shades of yellow, gold, and orange, with just a sprinkling of lime-green and maroon, all contrasting against the dark evergreens.
She was soon able to put the less pleasant scenes out of her mind.
