The Wonderful World of Scarecrows (Fourth Edition)

e572006445f3537ea870af8a28fb3813.jpg

Now that it’s fall, it’s the season for scarecrows. Though I’m not sure if any of these can actually scare crows away from your garden vegetables or crops. Or at least once the birds pick at it and realize it’s just a mere figure of straw and old clothes that doesn’t do much of anything. Yet, people still make them anyway for their fall décor. There are even contests. Most of these consists of a mannequin dressed in old clothes and stuffed with straw. Yet, you’ll find a few made of metal and other materials. Some don’t even have clothes on at all. Of course, some people decide to get creative with these guys. So some of them can be well beyond the farmer image we’re used to. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of delightful scarecrows for the fall.

  1. Birds better watch out for this woman in black.

5. Have room for an old crow?

12. This gardener is all tin cans.

4dba412bd8d14ccba0fabef64c9507bb

39. This scarecrow’s sawing logs.
