Moorgreen Scarecrows
Moorgreen - Scarecrow Trail
w/e 04 June 2017
All of this week's pictures were taken with a Kodak DX6490

We've had a couple of weeks of good weather and the worst weather of the fortnight saved itself for Bank Holiday Monday. That didn't deter the Residents' Association of Moorgreen from going ahead with their Scarecrow Trail on the 28th and 29th of May and when we went on the second day we still managed to miss the rain.


The theme of this year's event was "Costumes of the World" and our first stop was in Mexico.

Ireland was well represented with several scarecrows dressed in emerald green at various points in the village.

There were also a number of Welsh representatives, this one also proudly displaying a flag.

England was also represented in various guises including an English Gentleman sitting on his lawn complete with a bulldog and a couple of tins of lager.

Another aspect of Englishness saw "Bernard" standing guard at the end of a drive.

Our antipodean counterpart lounging on the beach - actually it was a gravel drive - was surrounded by "tinnies" whilst wrestling with a crocodile.

The USA found representation in an effigy of the President lurking behind a hedge whilst close by was an Hawaiian beauty.

Continental Europe featured with a French Onion seller.

The Italian gondolier selling "Just One Cornetto" was raising money for the MacMillan Cancer charity.
Middle East

The last scarecrow in this selection was at the end of a drive off the main road where a Middle Eastern gentleman sheltering under a tree was also advertising the Beauvale Horticultural Show which is to be held at the next Bank Holiday at the end of August.
