He is sure a fancy scarecrow Dave! Very nice job! Since Cid is a security guy, how about another scarecrow being the criminal he caught. That sounds like a great idea to have a scarecrow contest! I would love to block the view of a neighbor and was trying to think of something that would not interfere with my beds but be in a back corner. I couldn't think of a tall shrub or narrow tree that would fit without interferring with the beds. A scarecrow would be the right size if I make it correctly. I like the idea of a lady with a flapping skirt! I'm in for a scarecrow contest! How did you make the frame that holds him?

Your scarecrow just looks fancier than others. I'm sure I have wooden poles. I will post pictures when I get mine done. Thank you!
