Happy Halloween! This is the fourth Halloween for flowerflinging and for each one I chronicle the annual scarecrows in the Salisbury (CT) Autumn Festival. This is my all-time favorite from years ago. Sadly, each year there are fewer and they are a little more commercial.
Scarecrow ‘Chris Choregiver’ is emblematic of the Chore Services Group of Sharon CT who provide home assistance to the elderly and incapacitated. This worker-scarecrow looks prepared for anything….house cleaning, laundry, transportation, yard work and cooking.
I neglected to look at the label for this large group of what I take for Day-of-Dead scarecrows. The organizers supply the T-crossed frames for the scarecrows which can be used or not. Maybe the gent in the front is holding them all up.
Salisbury boasts two super bakeries almost side by side on Main Street. Sweet William offers up fantastic scones, cakes, cookies, and other sweet treats. Salisbury Breads supplies the freshest bread, rolls and pies, along with a big catering business. They made this scarecrow ‘Baker’ with a colander for a hat and crisp chef whites. Very tall too, like the owner.
