There's a new man in town, and he's in my garden!
This appeared on my doorstep this afternoon, a gift from Tobe Brockner of ScareCrowAtions.
My earlier (feeble) attempt at erecting a scarecrow wasn't exactly a success. That puny Granny Junior just didn't have what it takes to scare off a mouse, let alone a crow! This guy, however, really has the brawn to do the job! Look at the size of his....uh, leg? That strong torso! And those are some big hurkin' .......arm?
That handsome face could grace any granny's garden. He's all ready to pitch in and help, too. He brought his own trowel and some work gloves. OK, so they are rather girly gloves. A real man can admit to his feminine side.
He's six feet tall, so I did have to get a bit of help from Mr. Granny to get him situated in the middle of the 2014 strawberry patch (yes, half of those transplants died. Luckily I have more). He did a happy dance when I brought him that basket of tomatoes, and appointed himself "Guardian of Granny's Garden".
What a proud fella he is. In his sissy hat. Wearing his sissy gloves. Oh, dear...what should we name him? Any ideas?
Thank you, Tobe and ScareCrowAtions! Granny loves presents!
