May in Bayfield

Garden lovers are in luck on Saturday, June 2 and Sunday, June 3 when 20 Bayfield area gardens will participate in a weekend of garden tours from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.

The Apple trees were blossoming when we took a tour up the hill. And down at the harbor the big boats were going in for the first big holiday weekend. Summer is about to begin! This last week Bayfield County just got drenched in rain so it's about as green as possible. Lush would be the word. Sadly a few roads were washed out and the cost is a hardship to Bell Township. There was a drought so perhaps it has been ended. Lake Superior may return to normal levels again.

Spring is here and the bears are roaming around.

There are bears about! It's spring and they are very hungry after sleeping all winter. Time to fatten up. If you drive around the countryside of Bayfield you might be lucky enough to spot one. I've seen them crossing highway 13 just outside of Bayfield when going to eat one night. They are also known to come to town and raid bird feeders and trash left out. Sometimes the police chase them out of town with the squad car and a siren. One spent the winter under a front porch. The stories are endless and just another bit of entertainment in the north land.
