This happy scarecrow smiles at you from a sunny pumpkin patch, supported by a dry cornstalk. It has a white fabric face with eyes, nose and mouth drawn on, topped by a blue cloth hat sporting a yellow flower. It wears a blue and orange plaid shirt, with a blue vest and orange bow tie. I took this photo, a symbol of harvest and Halloween time, in a pick-your-own pumpkin patch in Puyallup, WA. Copyright Gail Storrs 2009.
