Ready for Henri

Meet Scarecrow v2.0. The original scarecrow was built in a day and lasted five years. It had no polyurethane protecting it because I’d built it as a lark.

This one was built with lag screws and has four coats of resin protecting it. I hope the resin also keeps it looking nice.

        Is it Onree or Henry? Love this character, it’s put me in a mind to do something in our front garden! So, what is he celebrating? Harvest? I must write, I did say I would, ages ago! πŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈ

        It’s Onree, which is trhe name of the storm that’s been in our area for the past two days. Tomorrow, the storm will be gone and our friend here gets a new costume.,

      He got old and the wood was rotting. He literally began falling apart. I tried to use screws to keep him together but the wood was so soft that they didn’t hold.

      We heard about it for four days. We were prepared starting Sunday morning. And we got a single downpour on Monday afternoon. That said, I’m glad we weren’t bearing the brunt of it.
