Death Of A Scarecrow


Do you love my mums? This is 6 scraggly little plants I rescued from WalMart last year. I tenderly nestled them into some Miracle Grow potting soil and whispered words of encouragement to grow and make lovely blooms. I got this mound of yellow happiness! My scarecrow is even happy!


Little scarecrows are hanging out around the kampground, too. We have an abundance of crows this year. They have pestered me regularly by feasting on my peaches and apples. I do admit that I like to hear them cawing to each other.


It does make me wonder if those crows killed this scarecrow. So sad. I thought about reconstructing him, but I kind of like the macabre feeling of having a scarecrow corpse in the garden.



Decapitated dead scarecrow. To add insult to injury, his nose is missing.

Looks as if some of those rotten scoundrel campers have been up to no good.

Well, they DO call a group of them a "murder" of crows. So much more dangerous than an "unkindness" of ravens.
