Durrow Scarecrow Festival: part II

scarecrow festival

See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil“. Do they want to show us that they are not responsible for the evil deeds of the  Hollywood villains scarecrows, or is it a “code of silence”?  Anyway, it seems like the scarecrows do want to live a human-like life. Miley Silage in the image below shows all the passions of her human prototype, and has a very similar success here at the Festival.

Some scarecrows are confident and have a career…

Some are lost and confused…

It is not easy to live a human life if you are a scarecrow,  but as we all know,  “One that would have the fruit must climb the tree.”

I saw a few little dogs there, one of them might be Toto. What do you think?

    1. Indah – I thought that a bit of colour won’t harm 🙂 This was a really fun and creative event with many workshops, walks, competitions. A bit too far from where I live, otherwise I would go there every day.
      Have a good week! 🙂

    1. Miley Silage was as good as Miley Cyrus 🙂
      They had hundreds of scarecrows and many other funny things. I wonder when the first scarecrow was made? Probably they are same age as the myths 🙂
      Have a great week you too!
