Little Bear's Adventure's
I love it when the bottle brush blooms.
Beth hates the red stuff when it falls all over the patio and makes the pool look furry.
But I sit on a branch sort of like a pilot and watch the wildlife nearby. It's really exciting when a bee comes to visit.
I don't like sitting on flowers when bees are around. I can't hide so much there.
I really like these yellow trumpety things the best! You can really find some good spots in those twisty vines.
I like resting back on the vines like a hammock. It's the perfect combination of warm and cool!
This I Like!
I really like it when a butterfly comes to call!
It's windy today and I'm remembering...
This is me last year...ballooning!
It wasn't that scary looking down. I was tied to a chair.
I was a little startled when the green balloon popped. Then Beth made a quick dash when the wind started to loosen the ribbon tied to the chair! It was very exciting.
A Question for Beth
I asked, "Can't we go kiting today?" That seemed like a really fun idea.
Beth said, "Nope."
She could have at least said, "Maybe tomorrow."
I wish I could say that I decorated these eggs myself.
I wish I could tell you I picked these flowers by myself.
But I've been to busy guarding my candy.
Things To Do
There are lots of things you can do in the Smokies.
Here I am, pondering a hike. It is 2,179.1 miles long. Maybe next time.
I love sitting on smooth rocks. I could do that for hours!
I love sitting on the sun-warmed railing, too.
And I even love sitting in the Azaleas, when they're all drippy with dew! I'm content sitting in all these places.
But it's time to leave now. I'm off to Texas.
Spring in North Carolina
I should have prepared myself for all these flowers
I'm safe in the Houston area, because you hardly see a tulip there! But as soon as Beth started pointing out the tulips and daffodils and dogwoods in Elon, NC...I knew I was doomed.
I Don't Love Posing
I was a little aggravated at first, but it was actually sort of cool sitting on a few soft petals. Pretty nice colors, too!
These flowers were at Elon University, so I got to watch all the students walking by.
Off to Class
I wouldn't mind grabbing a backpack and following some of these students to class!
Flowers are okay, but I prefer a good hike at Hanging Rock State Park!
Hanging Rock State Park
The view was a little better. You can't see much when you're sitting in a tulip.
I really love North Carolina.
My mom gave me this tiny bear over 25 years ago... because I like small things.
