WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE FOREST?
On my way back home a week or so ago, I noticed an apple tree about 200 yards from the road I’ve seen a hundred times before. But this time, my eye wanted to focus on something that was different about it. There was a shadow in it that seemed out of place. In it was a mother black bear & her 2 cubs eating apples. Just about every mature apple tree I prune has bear marks in it. Pretty cool to see as long as they’re not my apple trees! 

 

May the forest be with you,
