I don’t know how many crows hang out around the Atlanta Botanical Garden on a usual day, but it will be crow-free at least through the end of October.
This year’s “Scarecrows in the Garden” features 107 of the field dummies, all created by businesses, schools, non-profits, families and individuals seeking bird-fright glory.
These two, the cockroach and the bell-e of the Botanical Garden, were this year’s winners.
As an AJC story explained this week, there’s a lot going on in the themes of motherhood and helping the environment, and there are plenty of other stunning and hilarious entries poste.
