Scarecrows in The Plains

One day we had lunch in the town of The Plains, Virginia because I wanted to check out a new restaurant. We found that the town had a scarecrow contest and many businesses were participating.

Since My Town Shoot Out has Halloween as a theme today, I'm linking up there, and also sharing with Orange You Glad It's Friday.

Even the fire department had a scarecrow!

By the way, the restaurant we went to check out was a bit disappointing. The food was okay but the noise level made it unsuitable as a place to meet Frank's daughter for lunch and conversation. Also, the menu was very limited, especially considering my food allergies. They did have a little message (pictured below) about allergens which would have seemed funnier if I had found enough to eat there.

  1. Those are some clever and creative scarecrows. You look cute peeking out of the cut-out there.

  2. The fire fighter one is my favourite!

  3. Some great scarecrows and spooks here ...
    I'm not counting you as a scarecrow or spook LOL!

    ... shame about the menu !

    All the best Jan

  5. Neat shots...even the attractive, smiling witch. Is it me, or is Halloween becoming more and more popular? [which is fine with me]
