Scarecrows


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.

Creepy creativity

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.

I like the first one best, he looks almost like a clown. But I also like those yellow braids.

There's something about scarecrows you gotta love! I'd like to make one next summer with my Grands. Happy Halloween.
