I don’t really want to post something as negative as this, but I wanted to share with you how upset I felt the other day. Me and little Jassy were on our usual afternoon walk and we passed by the allotment. I popped my head over the fence and had a chat with a couple of my friends who were busy working away. Just as I was walking off, something caught my eye…
I couldn’t believe it. What once stood here was a scarecrow.
I had to phone our secretary to report it. My first thought was that I needed to tell the chap who cares for 3 lovely gentlemen who come and work on the plot on Mondays and Wednesdays, I couldn’t let them come to see this. It really shocked me and I didn’t want them to feel the same.
After I’d finished work on Friday, I went down to the allotment to go and clear up the mess. I put the rubbish in the bin and the cross structure by their shed. It is such a shame that we can’t even have an innocent scarecrow on our site, without some idiots jumping over the fence and destroying people’s property. I’m going to get a print made of the scarecrow, as he was in his full & happy glory. I’ll frame it, so the men who work on the plot, can see him when they stop for a cuppa in their shed.
Sorry for the tale of woe. On the plus side that evening, I saw the most beautiful sunset… A positive thing to come out of a sad situation.
