playing possum

When I went out yesterday morning to do some gardening, I found an odd visitor in the yard. The possum was scurrying across the yard and scrambled up the fence.

Not what I was expecting to find at 6:30 a.m.

You just never know what wildlife you will find in Chicago, eh?

Isn't he pretty? I saw a number of opposums when I lived on Fargo....usually on my landing, trying to rifle the trash cans.

I see rabbits, too, a bit more often than most other non-flying critters. There's a young one who is a frequent visitor in my yard, young enough that he hasn't learned to be shy yet.

I planted some new flowers in the hope of attracting hummingbirds next year.
