I made friends with a little ringtail possum today!

Only to find she had two little babies and had made a nest in the viney thing just outside our front door!

Baby face!

Baby tail!

Who hangs out in your garden?

Oh my goodness, you are so lucky! What a little cutie. I mostly just get slugs and spiders. Maybe the odd neighbour's cat pooping on my grass if I'm lucky.

I also made friends with lots of spiders today! Because I was shaking trees and bushes to see what was in there. I didn't post pictures of them though because not as cute.

Last week I had to remove an ootheca (mantis egg case) while making a place to store firewood so I brought it inside to see if they'd hatch. I found two babies wandering around the living room today that must have escaped somehow so I'll feed them a couple of flies and release them tomorrow. They may not be as cute as possums but still pretty cool. Look how tiny! (That is a 30ml salad dressing container).

Oh, my, heavens. That is the cutest thing ever.

Just squirrels and bugs and spiders in my garden.

We get possums, squirrels, the occasional raccoon. No pictures, though. Sorry.

my neighbor says there's a fox living under her house. it must have wandered up on my garden, because i stepped in a pile of poo. (now i understand why the neighbors around the corner have all those antagonistic dog hating signs on their lawns.
