Tuesday Photo Challenge: All You Need Is Love

Scarecrow Competition

The Beatles seem to have become a bit of a sub theme to this weeks Tuesday Photo Challenge from Dutch Goes The Photo.

I don’t know if it still happens but for many years while I lived in the Huon Valley there was an annual Scarecrow Competition. Entrants would create all kinds of creatures, not just traditional scarecrows and place them on the verges near their homes. David and I would take a drive down the Channel Highway to see the scarecrows and he would patiently stop the car and wait while I jumped out to take photos of them. I think we did it for about nine years in a row before he got sick.

I absolutely loved seeing the fantastic creations and the outings we had together. Here are a few more of them.

I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.
