It's the first annual Dunston Scarecrow Festival this weekend.
From the look of the street outside it's been nice and popular.
I admit I didn't build a scarecrow, but I rather like that the first fellow below resides immediately outside my cottage so it appears as though I participated, although to be fair some of those flowers are mine. I sort of helped.
There have been something like 70+ scarecrows and I feel a little sorry that I didn't have time to make one myself. There are all manner of chaps stationed round the village and seeing as you couldn't make it, I thought I'd share a wee handful with you. See how generous I am.
They're pretty cool eh?

Wow! I think this is a fantastic idea! Do you think I could start my own Scarecrow Festival in Australia? A festival of ONE scarecrow? It might catch on....

Hey, you could start a craze! I heartily recommend it!
It's such a lovely way to pull a community together, if I'd had more time I'd have joined in for sure, although i think my attempts would have been shameful by comparison with some of the ones that were out there!
