Guardin' the Garden

The farm has a new character--Gourdetta, who stands patiently in the middle of the veggie garden with the mission of keeping the birds away from the  raspberries and tomatoes.
Gourdetta's head came from  Margot at the Farmer's Market, who raises fabulous decorative gourds. I loved the  nose on this one. Gourdetta's ensemble came from Salvation Army.  When I showed Cadence her attire, she said "She looks like you."
Gourdetta is much too skinny to be mistaken for me, however. Perhaps I should stuff her a bit to give her a more womanly figure.
Gourdetta greets the morning.
She keeps the birds away, the turkeys help keep the bugs at bay.
