vote for scarecrow



Milan Garden Club built and entered “Cordelia Anne” for the Milan Main Street Scarecrow contest which is going on now on Main Street in Milan, MI.

You just go to Milan Main Street’s page on FB – https://www.scarecrowsonmain.com/vote  – and the scarecrows all come up. You click the heart icon below the MGC scarecrow (located at the bottom of the group) and it increases the tally of how many have voted for her.   

Please help our club’s entry win and it takes less than a minute!!!….PLEASE forward to others you know to vote for Cordelia Anne also!

MANY Thanks,

P.S. If you find that it doesn’t let you vote more than once try it in Chrome. If you are using the new Microsoft Edge, I found that it would only allow me to vote once, even after a day or two. Today I tried my Chrome access and sure enough I could vote a second time.

I’ve also been having some issues with posts on Microsoft . I discovered that WordPress works better with Chrome than on the Microsoft access.

A Garden Fairy Scarecrow

Naida sent the following for posting:

Several of our Milan Garden Club gals (several of our members in our MGA
and also in the Monroe Hort Club) decided they wanted to build a
Scarecrow to enter in the “Scarecrows for Main” Contest in Milan
starting Monday, October 12.  They completed her Friday night after many
hours of planning, gathering supplies and building, and have named her
Cordelia Anne and she is over 7 feet tall!  Cordelia Anne, Garden Fairy
Scarecrow, will be residing on Main Street in Milan – attached to a
light post –  between Collins Center and The Owl, until the end of October.

Because I won’t be able to post a Photo Friday, tomorrow (will be away from my desktop) I thought I’d post a few new treasures. I’ve added a few photos from my garden along with one sent to me from Kay H. Each contains some piece of artwork that we can treasure along with our flowers. Don’t be shy, send me your garden treasures and photos to post to the Blog.

Kay H from our Horticulture Club send me this for other to see She writes:

Karen H had so many great pieces it was difficult to decide but I was taken by the shape and color of this one. Im so glad I chose it  Whatever flowers or buds I put in it looks just right and the water reservoir works very well.
Thanks for giving me such enjoyment Karen.
This year I pulled out some overgrown barberry shrubs and inserted in their place a Memorial Garden. This garden reflects the beauty of life, given the many passing’s of those with COVID 19. It also is a tribute to our beloved pets and family Linda W.
From the street it blends nicely with the garden in front of the sidewalk.
A cottage garden is starting to appear
Given to me from a friend who made it…this cute piece adds plenty of color and whimsey to my deck.
