There are so many blogs out there with Autumn as their topics. Well, why not it is the time of year. We really get into the season here too. The colors start to change and the temps start getting cooler. It must be apple picking time. The orchards are busy with families out picking apples, watching apples getting pressed into fresh cider. Not to be outdone, Emma have developed their own technique for apple picking.
I always seem to have my camera near, except this morning. Ted and I were enjoying coffee on the deck admiring the beautiful morning when I looked up and saw a black bear loping across our field. I know I sounded very articulate as I yelled "bear, bear, bear". That was all I could get out. I ran for my camera and Ted ran for the gun. I couldn't find the camera and when we came back out the bear had cleared our fence in one leap and was heading into the woods. Fuzzy the llama was standing guard. In no way is she any match for a bear. She would have been his first target. Ted went up into the woods and shot multiple times hopefully scaring the bear away. I hope he was as scared of us as we were of him. This is the first time we have seen a bear on the farm. We aren't delusional to think they haven't been here all along.
