    Now I can't wait for fall, and summer is just arriving! This makes no sense! It's lovely Brad!

    Brad, this is lovely. It's about fall, though, right? Scarecrow, tutu…. all makes me think of the beginning of a new school year in the fall.

    Lovely ku with the blend of beautiful images! Scarecrow wearing tutu (costume of a female ballet dancer) is an extension of artistic imagination.

    I love it, Brad. I work in a nursery school/kindergarten and this really made me smile.

    Kids don't worry about what's sensible or appropriate attire for a particular season. If they think the scarecrow should wear a tutu and it's autumn, so bit it!

    I guess this could also be read as a statement about gender expectation. A fine haiku.
