So, Autumn is not quite in the air yet, though I always find myself longing for it at this time of year.

I thought that now would be a good time to start filling our community gardens with 
Garden Folk to guard the coming harvest.

I arranged a workshop at our garden site and we had the most wonderful and creative morn!
Take a peek here for the day! 
I've fallen in love with Tattie Bogles, the Scots name for scarecrow!
So many wonderful children's books have made their way to me, all the stories with
 such heart and soul!

Here's the tattie bogle I created.  Her name is Aunt Tattie and I think she's beautiful!

I had such an inspired time bringing her to life that I long to create more and more and more!
They look so magical from a distance!

If you are of a mind to create (or already have created) a tattie bogle for your garden,
won't you please post a link here so we might all come to see!

Oh, my! Aunt Tattie is just too beautiful! Alas, I'm afraid I could not leaver her to the elements! She'd have to have an indoor respite...perhaps with the Peanuts. :)

Mimi - you have such great photos here - not just the Aunt Tattie but throughout. Your Darla looks great and that weird new goat! Crazy. k.

She really is quite lovely. She looks like she belongs in a beautiful English flower garden.
