A few of my favourite things..

Possum!

grey brushtail possum

There is nothing quite like exploring the bush at night.  A possum is a source of great excitement for the spotter ( both the middle girls of the family had the honour), and this weekend we saw two on our wanderings.

    A few years ago I moved from an old suburb to a newer area where the trees have not grown up again. I miss the possums in the backyard, although less so when they had midnight running races on the tin roof!

  6. lol! I can’t imagine a possum that is not cute. Can it be true? Our Greater Gliders (giant possums with teddy bear ears) are my favourite sort – they have a seriously high cute factor!

    Rob, the first time we had an over-the-tin-roof run, I scrambled from bed and out the back door to see if the sky was falling. It’s a noisy practice, for sure. I think it would be a great loss to be without older trees…trees are such comforting things, apart from the nature they attract.

    Thanks for visiting, all 🙂
