Making Garden Scarecrows

We have had some gorgeous spring days here in Eastern New Mexico.    The snowball bushes are in full bloom....has anyone every tried to dry snow balls....hmmmm...maybe I should try it!

We have a large deck right off the east side of the sunroom.   H built a faux fireplace back in 2013.    If you would like to see how he did here....

I bet you thought this post was about making Garden patient with!
  Later that year, we wanted a little more privacy when we were on the deck so we made a privacy fence....clothes line with white sheet hung on here to see that post.......

Well,  after almost two years out in the weather the sheets were still in pretty good shape but needed to be replaced.    I thought it might be fun to put some Garden scarecrows in their place.    I haven't finished the project yet,  but I though I would give you a sneak peek.....

I dug through our closets and found some clothes that we no longer wear and have started making the scarecrows.   I picked up some garden gloves at the Dollar Tree,  but they still need hats and other accessories....

I am going to attempt to make a "mobile" scare crow to move around the yard in this worn out wicker chair.    Wish me luck!

Here is the other snow ball bush that is blooming in the back yard.
Thank you so much for stopping by.....
