Along with pumpkins galore that we have seen in fall decorations, there was a noticeable scarecrow presence in towns Husband Walter and I visited recently.
Most of the scarecrows were mass produced. And even one-of-a-kind were benign creations.

Roswell, Georgia, was the exception. In early October, scarecrows in a Halloween spirit populated Roswell’s historic downtown streets, stores and residential gardens.

The scarecrows enhanced the welcome commercial establishments offered with food, drink, a comfortable environment, and at one store, an invitation to pick herbs from the storefront planter.
