Beatrice Bear has been a busy bear helping 'Mummy Liz ' with the planting of lots of seeds to grow food here at Dalmally. She is a very lucky bear to have such a large garden and the polytunnel makes it possible to garden even on our many rainy days. For a bear the smells are great and the recycled straw Liz has used to protect her plants and nurture her soil makes a lovely soft bed . Beatrice bear has been of great comfort to the baby bears who don't quite understand why they can't travel on the train or meet all their human friends. Today she has brought baby Simon to watch the planting . Tea in the tunnel is very exciting , Earl Grey and ...Beatrice is that chocolate in baby bears pouch? Ah a gift from Pierre Bear on his last visit ? Yes we have cause for celebration. We will sit with the plants and just be at ease with the natural world. Thank you Beatrice for your company and your quiet wisdom for a bear is admirable, now all the baby bears will learn about a new way of living we need to embrace.
