Viewing wildlife in the backyard

This is one of my favorite pastimes...viewing my backyard wildlife. This summer we had this beautiful bear pay us a visit. The chair is a bulk pickup find that I spray painted blue and placed under the mulberry tree, little did I know that a bear would use it! This bear found it convienent to stand on to grab the mulberry branches. ( Wish I had a picture of that!)
He's in hibernation today but I'm sure I'll have lots of deer and birds to watch. Who visits your backyard???

This is truly the way I would want to live. I live out in the country in a little rental red barn. Nothing like having your own place though in the woods. I truly love animal and I have save so many little creatures during my life time. I'll be putting you on my inspirational list. Thank you so much for sharing this..By the way I'm a serious outside bird feeder and enjoy so much the birds and all the other critters who stop on over to visit.

Hi, Mary, thanks for coming by. LOL, don't know if I could teach Eddie too much, but I can't wait for the shopping trip. Of course, there will be about 40 other people going along too!

What fun to see a bear in your backyard. Are you the Mary that was on Great Impressions? I think you must be, I remember your trash to treasure projects too. Thanks so much for reading my blog! Happy New Year to you.
