This is a scarecrow that I built four years ago.
I didn't build it because I had a garden
to protect, but instead I built it
because I was having a backyard
baby shower for my niece.
She was a nice ice breaker and conversation starter.
Through the years she has had a few make-overs.
One was a cowgirl outfit . . .
but for the life of me I could not
find any photos of her :(
After we bought our country home
and I had a garden . . .
she took on a country girl look.
It was good for me to do this post,
because I was feeling bad about the
growth or non-growth of our garden this spring.
Until I came across this photo
taken in early June of last year.
And this photo . . . taken in August.
What a difference a couple of months make!
Well, today I went to the Goodwill,
to buy her a new outfit for this year.
Everything with a yellow tag was half price,
so I looked for yellow tag items only to purchase.
Doesn't she look pretty.
Behind her is another garden.
It's located behind the Art Barn.
This year we have two spaces plowed for gardening
and nine garden boxes.
I know it is proably over kill,
but I had so much fun last year,
growing our own food.
I guess I went a little crazy planting this spring:)
This is one of the garden boxes.
It has three pumpkins, a row of carrots
and two rows of zinnias:)
Do you see my helper on the steps to the Art Barn?
I want to thank Carol at Art & Sand.
Her post is about the need to create . . .
she inspired me to quit working today and do
something fun and creative . . .
ergo . . .
my scarecrow make-over.
Thank you, Carol.
Go read her post and get inspired . . .
I hope that you enjoyed your visit.
I love it when you drop by.
Please leave a comment,
so I know you were here,
