Scarecrow

Lisle, IL(Zone 5a)

Here's the scarecrow I made today, Luau Larry, ready to hit the links. Oh no, looks like he's already on the course and in the rough. Go back to gardening Larry, your golf game is horrible!

Any comments from your neighbors? Love that your going to dress him by season!

Lisle, IL(Zone 5a)

Nothing from the neighbors yet. Going to have to put together an outfit for Labor Day, probably a hard rock miner.

Don't you just love a man in a tool belt! LOL!

Lisle, IL(Zone 5a)

The only thing better than a man with a tool belt is a man with a money belt.

Oracle , AZ(Zone 8b)

Mmmmmm. Maybe.....

Phoenix, AZ(Zone 9a)

How about a tool belt AND a money belt? Perfect!

Lisle, IL(Zone 5a)

You need the second to afford the first.

It's now September and while my thoughts are turning to my winter garden full of veggies and blooms, Larry, like many men from coast to coast, is preparing for a different ritual of Fall. No not football, but tracking elusive prey in the great outdoors. That's right, it's American Sportsman Larry, out in the field looking for game. Chuck's decided the safest perch is on top of Larry's head, and it also gives him a front row seat to the action.

Since my FIL is a retired Marine Sgt Mjr, I was planning on a Marine uniform for the 1st 2 weeks of Nov.

Crossville, TN

GREAT!! I am doing a float for the Veteran's Day Parade representing our Southern Arizona Veteran's Memorial Cemetery.....it's in the planning stage now...Jo

Phoenix, AZ(Zone 9a)

Love Larry's new look;o)

Lisle, IL(Zone 5a)

Larry spent the day harvesting the bounty of the garden and here he is showing off the results of his hard labor. Not sure how he managed to grow Jack 'o Lanterns, but the proof is in his basket.

That is AWESOME! -- Mindy not Mork :-)

Oracle , AZ(Zone 8b)

ROTFLMBO!!!!

Lisle, IL(Zone 5a)

Larry's all decked out for Halloween and ready to scare a lot more than birds. Sorry, ladies, but this portrait will not be on your Larry shirts; you'll have to wait for the calendar.

Now that might even scare me given the right situation - lol. WTG Larry! Lovin' the costume!

Crossville, TN

Great!! Trick or Treat, Larry?? Jo

Lisle, IL(Zone 5a)

Definitely Trick!

Oracle , AZ(Zone 8b)

Very clever!! Love the axe and the head.

El Mirage, AZ(Zone 9b)

Except for those couple inches of jeans peeking out, I would never have known it was Larry. That guy is a master at recreating himself!

Lisle, IL(Zone 5a)

Yes, and he does it every 2 weeks or so.

Payson, AZ

What a neat scarecrow!! I'm interested to know what you used for the hands, to be strong enuff to hold the things he's holding so sturdily. Love the seasonal change of wardrobe.

Lisle, IL(Zone 5a)

His hands are 16 gauge 3 wire house wiring wrapped with white electrical tape, then shoved into 1" pvc pipe.

Lisle, IL(Zone 5a)

Larry's dressed up to salute America's veterans.
