Exit , pursued by a bear…

 Winter in the Duchy of Tradgardland can be dangerous!

  1. And I thought Canada was a dangerous place! Must be a hungry bear to want to eat flat soldiers. Lovely and whimsical scenes, Alan.

  2. Thanks, the joy of coffee stirrers and simple 40mm conversions. Not to mention a pound store toy bear.

    1. If I did them again I would change the tricorn to the jockey cap hat that Norwegian ones wore.

  10. These scenes make me feel right at home here in the Adirondack Mountains! I haven't seen a bear in quite a while, so I will enjoy yours Alan, at a safe distance!

    1. The children of a family friend who was an honorary grandmother ( long story) to my children had a house in the Adirondacks. I recall my father in law visiting there and the photos looked idyllic.

  11. Those troops only have themselves to blame, blasting away with their muskets. If they didn't make so much noise, the bear would still be in hibernation...little wonder he was annoyed!

  12. I can almost feel the chill. Maybe the bear got disturbed from hibernating. Let sleeping bears lie.
