Got to Love a Scarecrow

Fall,How I love fall of the year. The leaves,the festivals,pumpkins and so many beautiful fall decorations. In most you will see a scarecrow,ah,scarecrows. Love them but I doubt that most children even realize where they originated. I'm sure most of them just think,Wizard of Oz right off the bat. But those in farming country know fully well their purpose to scare away birds and animals from dining on the seeds and crops. Most would just throw an old shirt and hat on some sticks that were stuck up in the field or garden so when I found these photos of how original people have gotten with these(and there are also contests)I thought I would share them,clicking on them will give full effect.

I hope you enjoyed these as much as I did.
