BEYOND BEAR NECESSITIES
Yes...we had a bear come to visit last week but couldn't identify until Ken put a Peruvian bell next to the bird feeder. Well, the bear climbed up for sunflowers and was surprised by the clanging... This was about 10 PM...our lights startled him and off he went. By 5AM he was back again...This time we watched quietly...as he climbed, stretched, tolerated the bell and then made a decision to leave...by the garden path! Quite exciting.
It may be that the bear has found other things to eat, but now we are seeing woodchucks, turkey, and fox here in town...and a quiet little town it is, too! The rose breasted grosbeaks, goldfinch, sparrows, woodpeckers, and other colorful birds entertain us in the bear's absence.
There are other activities in the area...hiking, biking , fishing , antiquing...but for the moment, all is eclipsed by the bear...
Old Glory Antiques has opened their backyard space to their ever growing selections...Lab and Lager has opened a new location in the next town over...
Come on up to the country...you never know what you might see in Fitzwilliam, Cheshire County, Monadnock Region, New Hampshire...you get the idea!!
Our door is always open!
