An innocent scarecrow competition

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Last weekend, there was a Scarecrow Competition in our local parish church in Chandler’s Ford.

I was intrigued. I was determined to have a look after finishing my teaching in the morning.

Do scarecrows have to be made with straws? Are there any rules? I would be clueless with straws. In our house, straws are only used for our chicken run in the garden.

I’m not sure how popular scarecrow competition is in the western culture. It strikes me as something nostalgic, innocent, fun and silly. People like having fun, being creative, and showing a good sense of humour.

I like it.

    上回说过,Wordpress 有个 Reblog 的超强功能。在 WordPress 圈子里的博文,你如果要转载,只要按一按 Reblog 这个键,迅速转载,大功告成。

    我不久前开了一个英文博客,今天我就自己给自己 Reblog 其中一篇博文,打打广告。

    写中文和写英文,题材和感觉都不一样。目前还在摸索中,如果有交汇之处,我就会用 Reblog 的方式链接。



    我特地去参观了一下。看了那么多稻草人,感觉英国人真有童真,童心,会胡闹,爱搞笑,把喜欢 DIY 的精神发扬光大。
