|Pic taken when outside waiting for the 4th of July neighborhood parade yesterday!|

In the top picture, I actually walked almost right on top of him and he wasn't intimidated - just looked up at me. We see lots of possums and raccoons in our yard (which is by a creek) and they they are very wary, so I was surprised at his boldness. But I took pictures and he eventually went off down the rabbit hole*.
While I was out there I decided to take some pics of our figs which are getting larger every day. Hopefully they will be ripe by next week. We have 2 fig trees; a Turkey fig and a Celeste. The Celeste are smaller and much sweeter. We generally leave the Turkey figs for the squirrels and mockingbirds... and pick the Celeste for ourselves and friends.
and we have a *Bay leaf tree* also. It does wonderfully well and supplies us with plenty of fresh bay leaves for cooking.
Have a good week!
