Funny Scarecrow Ideas
Here is a clever scarecrow idea from John Kerry: Scarecrow in a Manhole! John says, 'There is no hole - just a painted wooden frame around his waist'! This display was in the Village Competition at Bratton Clovelly, Devon, UK.
John Kerry also sent in this wonderful Gardener Scarecrow from the Bratton Clovelly competition in UK. John says, 'He had passing drivers stopping to help him'!!
