Tobermory has a new resident putting smiles on people’s faces.
Lockdown Lettie in Drumfin Gardens is talk of the town already and organisers of Tobermory’s scarecrow festival scheduled for later this summer are hoping she will be the first of many entrants.
The colourful character, who regularly strikes up different poses, from enjoying a wee tipple to knitting and mowing the lawn, is a bit of fair weather girl.
Her creator, librarian Yvonne Marjot, only allows her out when there is no rain, seeing as she is borrowing some of her best clothes. Lettie, who also pops up on Facebook, even has her own Twitter tag, #LockdownLettie.
What scarecrows will appear next?
The categories are Most Ttopical, Most Creative and Most Scariest. Photographs and details of who made it need to be emailed to Morar Honeyman from Tobermory Horticutural Society at email@example.com by July 31 and hopefully the winners will be announced at the society’s summer flower show on August 22.
