Pumpkins – and Bunnies?!


Yes, it’s true – I’m a devoted “bunny mother”.  Hubby and I adopted two adult rabbits from a local shelter in the spring of 2010, and we’ve been enjoying our furry little “bunnies” ever since.  I try not to post about them too much, but thought it might be fun to do a fall/spring mash-up and photograph our bunnies with the pumpkins we purchased during our trip to the pumpkin patch a few weeks ago.


Bunnies and rabbits are most often associated with Easter and spring, but don’t they look cute posing with the bright orange pumpkins?  Cypress, our female rabbit is the all-white rabbit, and Pinto, our boy, is wearing the spots.


In case you’re wondering, yes – it IS hard to get our bun buns to sit still for a photo shoot.  Hubby was my bunny wrangler, and we bribed them with small pieces of carrots and banana – two of their favorite treats!

Halloween will be here before we know it, so I’ll take this moment to wish you all a Happy Halloween from our little family – bunnies and humans alike!

Warm regards,

    I just got back from vacation and I wasn’t able to leave a comment when I wanted to. But these are ADORABLE photos. They are the cutest! I feel like Cypress is giving you her “mysterious” look. Happy Halloween to you and your beautiful bunnies.

    Thank you! I’m glad you like the pictures. It was hilarious trying to get decent pictures of the bunnies. They were a bit “squirrelly” – hee hee! Cypress, in particular, has many different looks. I think this was her “What in the heck are you humans up to?” look!
