A night­gown can be ter­ri­fy­ing to be­hold

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

THE scare­crow fea­ture by John Lewis-stem­pel (Au­gust 3) re­minded me of my early days, when I was five and be­gan to gar­den. My first scare­crow was made from an old broom dressed in a night­gown —they have im­proved over the years. I had to beg for many old coats. Passers-by have of­fered me cash for an old Har­ris tweed jacket. Last year, I was of­fered £20 for a much-loved Bar­bour jacket. This year, I made a flock of birds from tweed and brown vel­vet. They twirl in the wind on their wil­low sticks and have saved all my peas. Mag­gie Dil­lon-god­fray, Glouces­ter­shire
