Yesterday the grade three class that comes to the Ladner Community Garden had a fun time building scarecrows. At the end of the school day we placed four of the scarecrows in the garden as we like to show the public what the community garden is all about. Well, we may never do that again.
Sometime between 3pm on October 9 and 10am on October 10, three out of the four scarecrows were kidnapped, gone, vanished! These guys are a bit awkward to carry as the wooden supports are long and a bit heavy if you are walking with them. The three scarecrows that went missing are the ones with pillow cases for heads in the top photo.
If you saw anyone walking by with scarecrows under their arm yesterday or any suspicious activity near the garden on Holly Park Drive in east Ladner please let me know.
All the clothes were bought from the local thrift shop out of my own personal money. When I visit the thrift shop the ladies are going to ask me how it went with the scarecrow day. Won't they be shocked to hear what has happened.
The children don't know about the scarecrows yet and I haven't the heart to break it to them . Right now I am disheartened by this loss and my faith in human nature has been squashed. Taking from the children is not right.
