Meet Betty!

(I am on the left!)
I notice the last time I wrote anything here was May. I seem to get my nose down to a task and when I emerge the days, weeks, even months have passed - well flown by to be precise.

It's Scarecrow time again - our village kicked off the whole East Cleveland Scarecrow Festival last Saturday, 29th July. Our new mayor visited and we raised £800+. A fabulous day!


  1. I am so happy to see you and Betty !
    Love the Scarecrows especially the Victorian Lady or Betrix Potter painting.
    Your village is very talented ! and you for planning all these fabulous outings.
    Your Mayor and the Council Person ? are so charming, Good Luck to both of them.
    But how are you and are the chickens well ?

    cheers, parsnip

  2. They're fantastic scarecrows! They are lovely and I'm sure they don't scare anything at all!

  3. What a great day you must have had - I will mark it on my calendar if you have one next year I am sure my mum and granddaughter would love to see the Scarecrows.

  4. We have one here in early July along with Open Gardens - these days are so successful and bring in much needed money for village funds don't they? Hope both are well.

  5. lovely! Scarecrow competitions do bring out the inspiration

  6. What a great festival to have! Betty looks rather taken with you ...


Thank you for your comments, always nice to know somebody has taken the time to let me know what they think.
