During the past two weeks we watched as our neighbors to the south, west, and north of us received severe weather in the form of tornadoes and flooding.  The power of nature never ceases to amaze us, and we pray for those suffering from the destruction and losses in the path of the storms.  

In the wake of the storms, the blue skies have returned to the muscadine vineyard, with weather perfect for being outside!  We are on alert with two bear sightings within a week.  We suspect it is the same bear that we have seen both times while we were on walks.  The bear has been shy, running from us, thankfully...or running from our companion dogs who have alerted us to the furry Arkansas black bear's presence!
