All Hats off to the Tucson Botanical Gardens!

Through November 30 the gardens are featuring "Scarecrows in the Garden," a collection of whimsical, colorful, fun, or just plain strange scarecrows. The scarecrows/sculpture were hand made by local businesses or artists. Each is different and they are placed throughout the gardens.

This flamboyant lady scarecrow is a tribute to the famous milliner, Lilly Dache. (Unfortuately the official signage misspells her name.) Photos of many of the others will be posted throughout November so check back!
