Jim Bird's Hay Creations in Forkland ALThursday, September 22, 2005
On Hwy 43 between Eutaw and Demopolis (AL)...just south of Forkland and really just before you get into Demopolis, are Jim Bird's hay creations.
You know you're getting **really** close when you see these three signs:
Verba (Acta Non Verba means : "actions speak louder than words")
Jim Bird has been working on the hay creatures and other neat folk sculptures since 1993, when he said he wanted to make something for bored drivers to look at:
Racecar (has #3 on side)
See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil
Rudolph and another reindeer
B and O Railroad
Party Clock (supposed to be set to 5pm - I think it's more on 4pm right now)
A woman being chased by a bull
Aren't these great? There are more stories about Jim Bird and the hay creatures here at the Auburn Plainsman (he's an Auburn grad).
These, and more pics, can be found here at my Flickr set.
