“The ornament of a house is the friends who frequent it.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
All last night we were serenaded with the thumping and screeching of possums running along our tin roof and jumping noisily into the adjoining trees here at our little farm.
Poor Bert was having conniptions!
It’s no wonder they call my neighbourhood Possum Creek…
This morning Bert and I went up to the shed to get some gardening gloves and one of the naughty midnight party boys was napping in a corner.
We took him back some apple, and asked if he wouldn’t mind keeping the noise down tonight.
I don’t mind our nocturnal visitors having fun, but I would like to get some sleep. 🙂
PS: Meanwhile more of the branch holding the big tree collapsed yesterday, sending small branches raining down on the powerline which is now bent and lowered. Let’s hope the removal crew comes today or that the tree finally unhooks itself and falls. This waiting game is all a bit frazzling…

Dear dear I have missed your posts and am praying for you that all is well.
Love and blessings to you.
These visitors so often come at night so maybe we should appreciate being disturbed by natural things.
When Kathy lived in the dump at Cardiff she had possums living in the house in her wardrobe it came as a bit of a shock to her that they were there
they are not my favorite animal…coming up on our back porch sometimes1
I guess your possums need training from my possums 🙂 For years my neighbors told me stories of the possum family living in my pecan tree–they saw them while out smoking at all hours–but never once did I see or hear any of them!
fabulous shots of a mysterious critter!
Yes I agree they can get noisy. I ask them to just stay on the front side of the house and they do. So much more peaceful nowadays. Hope they tell the others tonight at your house ! xx
