Scarecrows in the Sunshine!

At last it almost seems like Spring is here...the scarecrows are out to play, it’s half term and the Gardens at Tatton are looking lovely.

The scarecrows come out to play!

There are some very inventive people out there making these scarecrows...Janet Bradshaw, who is part of our Education team worked with the children at Longridge Community Centre to make some of our Scarecrows in the Kitchen Garden. Also our talented team of gardeners made many of the scarecrows in and around the gardens, so all credit to them too. 

Coming up behind one or two, they did look a bit real and one couple sat on a bench totally ignoring one much to his disgust! 

In the Fernery there were lots of very large snakes and a scaredy cat.... and I always wondered what the 'cave' held...!

They made everyone smile and of course it was such a lovely day on Sunday, with the Stableyard extremely busy. And after all the weeks of the place looking deserted it was great to see visitors back.

Janet and Jill Belton were helping children make mini scarecrows in the marquee in the gardens...very busy and they didn’t seem to stop for anything. So a lovely day had by all, let’s hope the weather continues for the rest of the week.
