For those of you familiar with my blog, you’ll remember the garden planter I designed and built after I found out I had been wait-listed for the local community garden. For those of you who are new -Welcome!- and you can read all about my adventures into carpentry HERE.
The planter has been all set up since I built it in March, full of dirt and ready to go. I’ve just waiting for the weather to warm up! My little starts have been making forays out onto the deck during the day to acclimate, and I finally decided it was time to put their little feet in the ground on Monday.
Since my three-foot by three-foot planter isn’t large enough to warrant a full-sized scarecrow, my mom made a smaller version for me. This fellow is also my newest model for my photography, and he’s a dream to work with! He doesn’t move after I position him, he’s willing to give any pose a try, and he doesn’t talk back. :)
My mom is super creative. I keep telling her that she needs to make these guys and sell them. No two would be alike, because she uses unique materials for each one.
What do you think? Would you buy one of these creative creatures to add a little character (literally and figuratively!) to your own garden?
