We entered the Mount Dora Scarecrow Stroll this year. "Name That Tune" is this year's theme with scarecrows having to represent a song. We haven't done a scarecrow for the Stroll in the past, but we just couldn't resist doing Scarborough Fair (Are you going to Scarborough Fair?/Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme). Our scarecrow is an English gardener designed after Vita Sackville-West who used to garden in tweed jackets and pearls. Of course, she's got her green Wellies, along with packages of herb seeds, a copy of Herb Companion, a book on Rosemary (all laminated to withstand the weather) and the requisite pots of said herbs. Her name is Matilde.
