First fun week of it we've confirmed regular raccoon trips around the yard. Now to corroborate that the opossums and coyotes regularly transit our yard too with pictures, not just chance sightings.
Ma loves em coming back every year. She feeds em grape jelly by the case!

A guy hatched and released turkey and some quail here over 20 years ago on his land nearby. Hes long gone but the turkeys thrive and what quail we have can probably be attributed to him.

Mostly white clover, but there's a few other things out there as well.

Nice Fig tree in my Daughter’s yard in North Ga. I might come back when they’re ripe.

^^^^ Now I know why fig leaves were once used as underwear. I would need a catalpa leaf but some of you would get by with the fig leaves, I'm sure!
