A funny, wonderful thing happened to me the other day . . .
I came home for lunch, and noticed that a branch had fallen from the small gum tree near our back door.
Upon investigating, to my joy I discovered a small koala sitting in the middle of the tree, about 5 feet off the ground. Martin regularly cuts the tree down to this height to clear the fire sprinkler near it, but new growth reshoots from the stump, and is quite lush and thick. My koala was sitting on this stump, and very comfy and well fed he looked, too!
To my immense pleasure and shutterbugging delight, the little fellow stayed all day, and was still there when I went to bed that night.
