Slightly Creepy

Apr
8

I went out to the garden to inspect and was shocked to discover this.

My very own freakish scarecrow, now deceased, and yet….still here! As if lying in state.

Why isn’t he gone yet? What cruel trick is this that I come upon him thus? What next, shall we float him down the river like the lily maid of Astolat?

    Wow, he certainly has decomposed. Say a small service, have a wake, and bury him before he thaws out and gets ripe. :) Suzanne

    Yikes! Has he returned from the netherworld to haunt you? What could it mean, what does he WANT?! I urge you to scatter his remains to the four corners of the earth (or your property) so he may trouble you No More! :jackolantern:

    Definitely float him down the river.

    Or compost him.

    Whichever makes the best blog post.

    Oh Suzanne, you caused a twinge when I saw your comment. He does look sad. His inner self is a thing of the past. His job is done. Time to bring forth a new presence to oversee the promise of this year’s garden.

    Poor Elaine the lily maid….I bet she was a fair bit prettier than that scarecrow (although before he decomposed he was awfully handsome).

    What an unexpected reminder of my favorite stories! Thanks Suzanne! I’m off to find my Arthurian legends :fairy:

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
