As we finished up our delicious meal of pork roast with homemade applesauce, delectable cornbread stuffing, steamed asparagus, and bulgar wheat rasberry pinenut salad, finished with homemade peach pie, (Thank you Mom!!!), who do we find outside our window having a wonderful plum snack, but Mr. Bear!
Some people enjoy TV during dining, others enjoy music, we tend to enjoy wildlife, at least at certain times of the year. I was lucky enough to creep close enough to snap a few photos while Alex, Granny, Matt, and the kiddies stayed safetly inside the house watching from an open window. I never felt threatened, but evidently Alex was reading the "bear language" differently and was waiting with some fire power, (yikes!)
But, this guy was loving the plums. He stuck around for about 15 minutes and then ran off as I escaped the mosquitos and ran back into the house. As we were digging into the last of the dinner, Mr. Buck shows up to the very same plum tree to enjoy his dinner snack! And then he leaves, and Mr. Bear is back...a regular plum diner we have outside our house!
