  1. Brilliant! I love how you’ve captured the scarecrow’s jaunty character.

  2. He really seems to be enjoying his bucket ride!! 🙂 Does he not realise that he has frightened the last crow alive?? 😉

  3. Yep, it’s Fall. I really like your poetry today.

    Thanks for sharing this blue.

    Happy Blue Monday!

  4. great enjoyment here. 🙂

  5. Love the scarecrow and haiku ~ carol, xo

  6. That’s so beautiful. Loved it! 🙂

  7. Tsk…a carnival of one is not possible. A party for one…maybe!

  8. Hahaha this is cute. I might copy this one for halloween ^_^


  9. It’s funny and cute. I didn’t know scarecrows are still done!

  10. He sure looks like he could scare all the crows away! Love his fashionable boots 😀

  11. Brought back a lot of memories with this scare crow. We had many different ones in our fields when I was growing up, They do help.

  12. Yes… having an organic garden is high on our list of ‘wants’ . So, the scarecrow is dong a good job!! Smiles..
    Love this, MMT!

  13. Had to laugh at this 🙂

  14. I love this–nicely done!

  15. We were sort of on the same wavelength again. My first thought was the image of a crow on a scarecrow’s shoulder. I love how you conveyed the connection.

  16. rational discourse
    fails with the scarecrow and his
    straw man arguments


  17. Well done! Thank you for sharing this. I love the image you give and the image it brings to my mind.

  18. I rather like Old Strawhead, and I hope that his carnival of one becomes a raucous carnival of many, as it’s bound to with a congress of crows!


  19. Nothing like a well-dressed strawhead! She’s even wearing a brooch! And kudus for being the King/Queen of Magical Multiple prompts!

  20. How fun to see! Happy Ruby Tuesday 2!

  21. Gave me a big laugh … I like the humor.

  22. Strange that you posted this now. My Mornington Peninsula hinterland is just opening to the annual Scarecrow Festival from now till the end of October. Love this jaunty character.

  23. Love the name strawhead… I know guys like that.
