Just made a delightful discovery.
Recently I’d been mystified because a container on top of one of my cupboards on the verandah kept catching on the door and nearly falling down every time I opened the door. I’d pushed it back repeatedly so that this didn’t happen, but a short while ago when I pushed it back I felt a resistance. And there, peeping at me with startled eyes from between two containers was …………
It’s not a great photo, I know, but I didn’t want to startle him/her with the flash.
In case you don’t recognise it, it’s an Australian native possum (a brushtail, I think, but I couldn’t see his tail) … they’re sweeter than the American variety I think. This one is quite young.
So, not only do I have Australian native flora on the verandah, but fauna too.
