If you go down to the woods today...

or the good old Landfill! 

Yes Lovely Man, as good as his word, was up with the sparrows this morning. By 8.30 he was out there, digging and weeding!  By 2 p.m. we had a car full of garden waste just begging to be taken to the landfill.  So off we went camera at the ready.  As we approached the site we passed the Garbage Collection Vehicle on it's way back downtown.  Lovely Man looked pleased with himself.  "There" he said "I bet there'll be bears today. Guaranteed! Do I pick a good time or do I pick a good time?"  And he wasn't wrong.  As we turned into the site there were five bears that we could see, all having a fabulous time picking over the latest delivery of goodies.  We parked up and dumped our rubbish and drove back down to the entrance, parking in a suitable place to get some pictures.  By this time unfortunately most of them had disappeared all except for this one.  Obviously had his fill and just needed a wee rest.  He just looked so gorgeous sitting there!


  1. Wow you got some great photos! He looks so cuddly! Do you feel like Goldilocks with all these bears around lol?

  2. Errmmmmm....much as I love the shots Ro, I very much hope that you are in your car when you take these. Bears can move at an incredible pace, and you will dead in a nano second. Don't get carried away with how great they look. You ask the natives....really!!


  3. LOL! Lorrie, I had to get out of the car to empty the rubbish!! Seriously tho, yes I was in the car to take these just in case but mostly they are so busy sifting thro the rubbish they don't bother you if you don't bother then. There's one man on his own on duty all day and he wanders about and drives around in his open sided digger thing.

    Angie, don't think I'd pass for Goldilocks cos I'm brunette (with grey underneath) and I make lousy porridge!
