Scarecrow in the Holland Marsh

'Silent and ancient, they are the unliving
who stand over the living crop'

The cleverly-written lines above appear in an article in the August 3rd issue of the venerable British magazine 'COUNTRY LIFE'.   The piece was written by John Lewis-Stempel and is nicely illustrated with local photographs from the English countryside. However, it made me remember a photo I took in the Holland Marsh a few years ago, which you see above.   It's one of my favourite photos from the 'Salad Bowl of Ontario'.   I hope you like it also.   Now, I must return the magazine to the waiting room of my otolaryngologist,  Dr. William Kaul, in Richmond Hill, who after warning me to bring the magazine back, added: "We know where you live".   On my way Dr. Bill.
