During August a village I drive through to get to work held a Scarecrow festival and a flower festival. The village is called Lower Peover (pronouced pever, not pea over as we thought when we first moved to Cheshire). This village's other claim to fame, other than the odd Scarecrow festival, is that General George S Paton and General Eisenhower held meetings with senior members of the British War Cabinet about D Day in the local pub.

Anyway, getting back to the scarecrows!

..............they started appearing all over the village about 3-4 weeks before the flower festival was held.

I just loved this one!

This is the second festival the village has had, I think it is great fun!

How neat! You just don't see things like that here. Other things, yes, but not like that. I love it.

Funnily we passed this village on our trip and wondered what the scarecrows were for! Thanks for posting the pics, they are fab. And yes we are having a great time in the UK. Still a couple of weeks to go :))
