wandering
mama bear near by
so much to do
daily visits seeking food
sent of wild flowers
.
note:
.
A friend had a big tree outside her window
where she looked out on the huge lawn to the river.
Mama bear, and some times cubs would come
sit in the tree and see could see them
up close and personal.
.
The tree was destroyed in a winter blizzard and actually crashed onto the roof … luckily a two story old farm house and the lady didn’t get hurt.
The damage to the house didn’t other her as much as missing seeing the Mama bear and cubs
