Scarecrow creativity at The Priory in Abbotskerswell

Every year there is some sort of competition in Abbotskerswell for the garden opening season. Last year the theme was ‘Owls’, this year it’s ‘Scarecrows, with a Royal Wedding theme’.

The Priory residents got their thinking caps on for this challenging theme and created ‘Florence, Meghan’s flower girl’ – she’s absolutely beautiful!

‘Florence’ has lots of social engagements already. Abbotskerswell has two open gardens weekends, and The Priory is also holding one, in aid of the National Garden Scheme – ‘Florence’ will be on display at all three events! The judging will take place after the final event in a few weeks time.

Previous years have seen between 30 and 40 entries into the competition and everyone wants to win. The residents are hoping the ‘Florence’ will be the favourite when the judging takes place in a few weeks time.
