So my dog went on alert before I could even get the front door open to walk her. I pulled her back and went to check outside. Young opossum was on the front yard fence. Since it was out front, it would have the potential to be in harm's way. So I went to shoo it away, back to the backyard. It walked the fence like a tightrope for the 40 get or so to cover.

Always looking for interesting plants for pollinators and food! Bonus points for highly, and pleasantly scented plants.

We had one of those on our patio a very long time ago. I can have my husband try to find the picture of it, but we thought him so cute... and then days later we had a large family of raccoons that ate the hornets nest we had to destroy, before they all waddled out to the front tree and climbed up and went to bed. It was kind of cute, I must say!
