Possums and Pawpaw

Some updates on my last post...the possum babies we found were likely over a month old, even though they were hairless and their eyes were closed.  Opossum newborns are the size of a dime, and are basically embryos living attached to a teat for another 1-2.5 months.  This made us feel a little bit better about the chances they have for making it with surrogate parents in a rehab situation.

Here are the photos I finally took of the Pawpaw tree down the street from us...aren't those blossoms gorgeous? No caterpillars yet, but we're looking...
