That old saying about April showers is certainly true this year. We had a double whammy of raindrops on this past week. No doubt the May flowers will be especially beautiful because of the moisture.
This was quite a week for nature happenings. The black bear that wandered into neighboring Montrose and La Crescenta certainly did cause a media flurry — or maybe more like a fury. The hovering helicopters made it sound like we were in a war zone.
I'm happy that there was a peaceful resolution and no injuries to humans or the bear, and that he has been taken back to the forest. I'm sure he had a heck of a headache when he woke up in his new surroundings.
Speaking of nature, I absolutely must share a wonderful Internet site that I have become addicted to watching. The offspring of Mr. and Mrs. Eagle in Decorah, Iowa, have captured not only my attention, but also that of viewers from all over the world. The adult eagles have three fluffy babies that are absolutely adorable. There is a 24/7 live, close-up video cam of the nest. The eaglets are 16, 15 and 11 days old now and growing stronger each day as you watch their parents feed them.
