"Whatssamatta ya scared?"

Barbara Stanwyck. I love her old black-and-white films (Lady Eve, hi-larious!) She has a line in a movie that I can't remember the title of (arrgh!), but she said, "Whatsamatta, ya scared?"In a real sassy tough girl way.I always wanted to use that line, but never had a good reason to up 'til now. Eeep! Introducing my bird of prey scarecrow. To all those garden-nibbling rabbits and groundhogs out there: "Whatsamatta, ya scared?" Muahahaha!








BOOM!

Love the Scare Bird! It's very native looking and cool. I also love the hipster shot of your cool shoes ;)

Southern Gal said...

That's amazing! Love it.

Stephanie Ann said...

Very cute. Let us know how it works out. It's definitely more dazzling than a scarecrow.

Dewena Callis said...

Does it really work? Wonderful, even if it doesn't. Now what should we do to keep cats out of the salad garden?

JoAnn Hallum said...

Is that a sweet potato? Can I share this with the gardening gang?

Jodi said...

JoAnn, yes and yes. :)

Dewena, don't know if it works - it's the first time I've made one. Cats in the garden...yes, that's a pain in the neck. I'm always shooing our cats out. But they never seem to go in boxes where I've planted marigolds. I wonder if their scent repels them.

Joy Lake said...

Probably, marigolds seem to repel a variety of animals and insects.

i love the hipster shot, too (and the scare-hawk is very cool.) you don't have a habit of turning rabbits into piano ornaments, do you? ;)

Ron and Theresa said...

Love it

Sara said...

It looks pretty scary to me. I'll be interested to know if the critters find it so.

Wow, this looks scary, yes it does....But I've also had a lot of success with 2 or three pie plates hanging from a pole. they move in the wind and bang together and scare away many things.....I had these poles every 3 or 4 feet when I had a vegetable garden...Now I'm gardening more on the deck.

I just want to let you know... I'm not even sure what. That I'm back among your readers after a time. That I enjoy looking back through those posts of yours I missed recently, and less recently. That, after my old computer died on me and I started things afresh on the new one, your blog is finally, finally sitting firmly in my bookmarks, so I can return to it whever I want. :D

And a feathered potato scarecrow? That's just one of those things I love about this place.
