Atlanta Buckhead -

Delight After Delight 

Walk to See Bear and Flowers

 

FLORA first and FAUNA below (Yes, a black bear!)

Magnolia at sidewalk on Peachtree Battle Avenue

 

 

Hollyhock on Arden Road

 

 

Pomegranate flowers on our tree every year -
fruit has not matured yet but flowers are amazing.

 

and now the FAUNA ...

 

An unusual Visitor arrives to Explore!

 

 

Hmmm,

Wonder if these humans have food out here for me?

 

 

 

On May 11th, 2017, homeowners in the Beaverbrook Buckhead Neighborhood were surprised by a visitor.

 

Calls made to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources resulted in a visit by Chuck Waters, Region Supervisor. His recommendations was to "... leave the bears alone." Residents, he said, should not leave pet food outside or leave easily accesible food trash to attract the bears. 

 

 

At this time of year, the bears follow the creek beds and as you will see in the map to the right, the stream is close to where the sightings were this week as indicated by the arrow.

 

 

 


Other ideas to make one's yard less attractive to black bears:

- Bear-proof garbage cans    --- Great Idea

- Remove bird feeders    ----  IMHO ---Not Necessarily an Appealing Option

- Clean your grills     --- Great Idea

- Cut down your fruit trees  ----  IMHO --- NOT Necessarily an Appealing Option

 

Let us help you find a home in one of the 22 Buckhead Neighborhoods!

Focus on enjoying the flowers and remember that
Black Bear sightings are VERY RARE in Buckhead!

Call or Text or Email -- lots of beautiful homes to see ---
All the best - Lynn

Hi Lynn- what beautiful photos!  And yes, what a surprise to see the bear!!! I'm glad all I see in my backyard are peacocks and squirrels.

Beautiful photos Lynn. I would be a bit nervous if I saw a bear near my house. Hopefully homeowners in Buckhead will heed the advice to secure their trash so instances like this don't become even more common.

I follow a photographer/philosopher, CHASE JARVIS who says "the best camera you can use is the one that is with you!"

The flowers were photos from my Blackberry PRIV Android cell phone.

Lynn B. Friedman It is no surprise that bears have integrated themselves in  you area. After all, they have been there for thousands of years. They merely discovered a new food source. Love the flower photos!

Yes, as CHASE JARVIS says - "the best camera you can use is the one that is with you!"  Taken by me on my cell phone - Blackberry PRIV.

All the best - Lynn
