Georgia, Then and Now

Here’s my post from June 4, 2010, shortly after our scarehawk George became Georgia.

Georgia is our new scarecrow.  Well, technically I suppose Georgia is a scarehawk, since her job is to keep hawks away from the henhouse.  But I’ve never heard the word “scarehawk” used before, and we all know what a scarecrow is.

That’s Georgia in the photo above, newly decked out by Cherie and Peyton.  Georgia was, until recently, George.  But George’s clothes had begun rotting and falling off of him and he’d become a pretty unconvincing mannequin.  So Cherie and Peyton gave George a makeover and he/she emerged as Georgia.

Georgia is, to the best of my knowledge, our first transgendered object on White Flint Farm.

We are hoping the hawks don’t like her.

Georgia’s transformation was modest, evidenced only by the purse and the feminine hat.

But look at her now.

She doesn’t look much like a country girl these days.

    Bill, a transgendered scarecrow? What a hoot (pun intended). I have a pile of worn out jeans and shirts that are passed garden work wear that would be perfect for a hobo scarecrow family at Terra Nova Gardens. I just haven’t carved out the time to make them. I seriously doubt that the Mom, Dad, and child would have any effect on scaring the night shade invaders but it would be a great garden decoration for the neighborhood to ponder when they drive by.

    Have a great transgendered scarehawk day.

    I think Gerogia is going to attract more crows then she scares off.
    Hubba hubba!

    Those sure enough look like Mardi Gras beads. Very fetching. As for not looking like a country girl any more – depends on what country you’re talking about! 😉
