What about a scarecrow contest? Very Happy
Between us I bet we could make a good assortment.

That is a very good idea Kelejan, it is getting the word out to every one as well and we may have a page full of all different scarecrow photos flower

He's just great.
How about a lady with flapping skirts to scare away the birds.

Sounds good, quiltbea. Something that flaps with a slap.

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!
