Fabulous fun and imaginative Scarecrows , in the Victorian Walled Garden of Knightshayes Court In Somerset South West England.

I can imagine at night they all have a stroll around and maybe a sit down after being on duty all day !!!

I love the fact that the birds take no notice and sit upon them !

And my favourite the Cat Faced Scarecrow

    Thank you so much for my Classique d’ Camembert Award , it was accompanied by much hand waving and shrieking .

    I love scarecrows, and these are so cool. When I was a kid, I played the part of the Scarecrow in a elementary school production of the Wizard of Oz. It was a great performance until I accidently danced myself into one of the painted set walls, and the entire set fell down on top of me and Dorthy. I can still hear everyone in the audience laughing their heads off.

      That took me back Michael to a school play when I was 4yrs old, I wanted to be the fairy who had lost her wand, Instead I was cast as a chicken and made to wear a bag on my head that vaguely resembled one. I went home and refused ,that evening I was the only child in the hall not on stage and they made me sit in the middle of two empty rows…
