Peter Rabbit

I drive past this sculpture that is made of straw about twice a week and its about 30 to 40 feet high, it sits in the middle of a field that belongs to a farm that makes and sell ice cream made from its own herd of cows, it brings a smile to my face every time I drive past, but some times I can't resist the temptation to call in to sample the wares. I blame it on Beatrix Potter.

Yes, it's very clever, they had to have a steel frame built to hold the straw in place and scaffolding erected as it was being built because of the sheer height, they have a different theme built every year, 2 years ago they had replica of Big Ben built complete with the clock with the face of the clock lit up at night!

Yes, when you have Peter Rabbit looking at you as you drive past it does make you do a double take.
