We find ourselves in the midst of not one but two
mysteries here on Fernnook Farm.
1. First, how does the bull keep getting into the
field with the cows? We know WHY he is doing it,
but the HOW has us baffled. There are no holes in
the fence, and there are no places where the fence
is bent low enough for the bull to jump it. Guess
we'll have to do some spying on the amorous old
2. What creature nightly climbs the Poplar tree,
knocks the hummingbird feeder to the ground, pulls
out the yellow flowers that cover the holes, and
drinks all the nectar?
My guess is a coon, but I'd love it to be a bear.
One of my unfulfilled lifelong dreams is to see a
bear in my yard or ambling along the tree line in the
back field. Whatever it is, we're going to set a
live trap out so we can nab it in the act!
