Diary of a Boy Gardener

We are in the Berkshires, the beautiful rolling hills of western Massachusetts where the season is short and the frosts sometimes win. Visit Sally and David's Gardens and see how two old farts spend their time helping what plants they can find their place in this world.

The Beast

For those of you not paying attention, we live in the country along a two lane road between Hinsdale and Peru. Last night I was awakened at midnight to go fetch my son. As I opened the car door I heard a very strange sound and looked up. Just 30 feet away, at the end of the driveway, next to the mailboxes, on the far side of aforementioned country road (tarmac) was a moose. It clip clopped up the road toward Peru. There is a street light right there which did a fine job of illuminating it looking back over it's left shoulder as s/he trotted away.
There are periodic reports of their being in this area, but I have never seen one before. Very big creature with broad shoulders. Quite the sight.
