Tattybogles, palm trees and a funfair

merry go round Yes, more scarecrows for you following on from our tour of the kitchen garden at Tatton where we found ghosts and pixies frolicking among the rows of winter lettuce and guarding fig houses. These are the rest of the bird scaring brigade and a look around the other garden areas at one of our favourite locations for some outside fun. pretty or scary scarecrow It is of course the law that you must share your crisps with scarecrows.Scarecrow sat on a bench Tatton-Gardens Some of the 70 scarecrows that were dotted around the Tatton estate.Tatton Scarecrow Festival 2015 Interesting topiary and a walk around both the peaceful Japanese Garden and the Italian Garden with its stunning views across Cheshire. Japanese garden topiary Tatton Park scarecrow tatton festival 2015 Tatton-Japanese-garden Italian-garden-tatton Then into the Palm Show House with a waterfall and more scarecrows to find.

What a stunning looking place to visit and wow to 70 scarecrows, it looks like some real thought went into those scarecrows and lovely to wander round and spot them too. Thank you for sharing with me on Country Kids.
