A scarecrow for the garden


 

 
 
 
 
 

We are still on school holidays here in NZ, and had a nice lazy afternoon at home, mainly playing outside in the cooling autumn air.

We ticked one of my garden jobs off the list - that being to make a scarecrow.

She won't win any awards at a country show but she is bright, and is modelling last seasons online shopping disaster - the cherry dress.  She has green hair and wears gardening gloves and hat along with a (hopefully) bird scaring yellow scarf.

We may have to make her a mate soon for the other vegetable patch.  I'm thinking a handsome chap sporting old jeans stuffed with straw and a bright checked shirt.

Bell was in hysterics when she saw our scarecrow and proceeded to Instagram her....cheeky.

Yes she is a bit funny looking, a bit wonky and quirky but the boys and I are happy with our efforts.

Here's hoping she keeps the birds away.  And besides, she looks better in that cherry dress than I ever did!
