Good response to our 'Virtual Open Gardens' project - and now Scarecrows
02 May 2020
We now have 50 garden pictures on the Home / Black Isle gardens page, from ten contributors, but there's plenty of room for more, so if you haven't already done so, look out or take new photos of your garden and send them in. Full instructions are on the Home and Black Isle gardens pages.
Next up is Scarecrows - Groam House museum has devised an alternative to their cancelled Open Gardens fundraising event. Lynne Mackenzie, a trustee of the museum, writes
We’ve just launched 'Black Isle Scarecrows’. The idea is simply to encourage as many people as possible to make a scarecrow, display it for neighbours and passers-by to see, then take a photo and post it to our Facebook group ‘Black Isle Scarecrows’. By posting pictures online we can all see scarecrows from across the Black Isle without having to travel.
As well as providing a project to occupy both youngsters and adults during the Coronavirus lockdown, we want to cheer up the Black Isle, strengthen links between communities and get people smiling as they go on their daily exercise.
