Several years ago, while winding through the gorgeous scenery that graces Cape Breton, Nova Scotia’s Cabot Trail we came across a head-turning collection of freaky scarecrows begging to be photographed. This was Joe’s Scarecrow Village, a homegrown roadside attraction in Cap LeMoine with great character that was originally created by local Joe Delaney to ward animals away from his planting field. Halloween seems a fitting time to share these colorful oddities. Sadly, this piece of rustic Canadiana has since been closed.

What an unusual exhibit, so perfect for halloween. Hate to see these interesting pieces of art set out to pasture!!
Barb, yes, perfect for the season!
What a work of art. I hope they will become permanent fixture in the future.
They were pretty cool to behold, epecially as a large grouping of such creations.
Nice photography, Brett. It reminds me so much of home. I really appreciate the love you have for Canada. Much respect!
Thanks so much! Continued success with your good writing.
These are really special, thanks for sharing.
