redneck scarecrows

2013-07-13 003Here’s a closer look.

Please note that this is only temporary, until I get to town to buy netting.

The birds are eating my tomato blossoms, though Retired Mountain Man says birds don’t eat tomato blossoms and Mandolin Ann and Accordionist Linda/Maggie have never heard of such a thing.

I’m telling you, the birds are attacking my plants.  Even with all the distractions I put up, the birds are attacking my plants.

Tomorrow is Going To Town Day (music lessons, groceries, prescriptions and bird netting) so tomorrow night the garden will look a bit more professional.

I have been advised to buy something called “silver tape” and pinwheels, too.

Meanwhile, back on the nest, another generation waits to eat my garden.

    It’s not the birds. It’s a flock/herd of tiny, flying deer! 🙂

    Stranger things have happened. Our “hungry hellions” pick leaves off of our weeping pussy willow and throw them at the cat. Magpies. I kid you not.
