Scaring the crows....................

Last week I was driving to Loches to do some shopping. My usual route from Le Petit-Pressigny is via Betz le Chateau and St. Senoch. As I was driving through St Senoch I noticed quite a few new (or old!) residents out and about in the streets.

We have a scarecrow competition - sorry festival (village politics, I think!)in our village in the UK. Tim always tries to make his 'move' in some way. Last year he 'won', with a crow that flapped his wings when anyone approached.

When I get home I'll post some photographs....................

In the meantime here are just a few of the pics we took at St Senoch. I browsed the web for a quick way of inserting the photographs as a powerpoint. Does anyone out there know how to do this, and can explain the process in simple terms?


  1. Great photos. We must look out for the scarecrows when we are next chez nous....they usually leave them on display for quite a while I think.

  2. The one on the loo at the triangle-about is great... saw it the other day... but as usual didn't heve the camera with me... but your shot has at least kept it for posterity.

  3. Jean - We spent an enjoyable half hour or so walking the streets. There were more pics but too many to include them all.

    Tim - I like the chappie on the toilet too! I particularly like his bag of loo roll which is just visible.

  4. Hi Gaynor. These pics are so quirkily French. I was in Loches in 2008 and was blown away by its majesty.


  5. Hi Denise.

    Hope you have been able to open (and close) a few veins over the past few weeks!

    I agree, Loches is a lovely place. We are about 20 miles south west of Loches.

    Your holiday plans sound great. I shall be heading back to the UK and work, when you are setting out.

    Have a fantastic holiday; I expect to read all about it!!
