Three Cheers for the Shropshire SCareCrows

MiCkey will make his first debut at Burwarton Show in Shropshire -Closely followed by the Shrewsbury Flower Show - hopefully I will be able to post the piCs of MiCkey and his friends as soon as they are available


  1. Thanks for the directions to making Mickey but I don't think I have the gas tank from a lorrie to start the project. (:0)

  2. This scarecrow would look fantastic in my garden. Well, it would. :)

  3. I LOVE your scarecrow! How creatively inventive!

  4. What a fine looking fellow. Only down the road in Cheshire. Is MiCkey heading this way in the future?

  5. Wow! What an art form!

  8. Gosh, a bit more upmarket than the scarecows made from old clothes and straw (Worzel Gummidge).

  9. A marvellous scarecrow. Very clever of you. I'd love one in my garden to keep the pigeons off the lettuce.

    Hi Jane, I had completely forgotten about you; do you still come to Fridge Soup? I just saw your name in the cooks' column and came over to refresh my memory. A fellow Salopian, how could i forget. Would you also remind me where in Shropshire you are? South, North, the hills, round the meres?

  10. MiC said you ought to call him 'Isaiah' Hehe
    Very impressed :0) He also wants to know if anybody's lost a wheelbarrow down the allotment?
