Josie: the Scarecrow

Finally, it's complete! Started about 3 weeks ago, the final touches have been added, and it is done. Before the head was added, I called it 'drunk scarecrow', but now it's Josie, in homage to my grandmother and her nutty sense of humor. I'm sure she would have loved it. As for its usefulness and whether she's working or not, my guess is as good as yours. However, I will say this no crows or other birds have been seen on her shoulders. Anyway--- THAT would be a bad sign!

  1. I think the birds will "love" your creation ;)

  2. Josie is a work of art. Birds with a highly developed sense of aesthetics will be attracted to her. Unfortunately birds with 'good taste' will also find your garden something to appreciate in a more active way. Good luck.

  7. I've always wondered if these things work. Never actually seen one on a farm or garden, though. Wouldn't bother me.

  8. I'm not sure about crows or birds either, but it sure scared to hell out of me! No offence to your grandmother :-)

  9. Josie looks good! I hope she only scares away crows and not the birds that visit the birdhouse house behind her.
