Carolyn Motherway Lyman from McGrath, AK "Scarelyn, my scarecrow, is supposed to look like me; I figured if I dressed her up in my clothes, the birds would find her more believable. Ha! That lasted two days, and now they ignore her. Anyway, friends get a laugh when they see her. She's strategically located with one foot in the beet bed and one in the pea bed."
