Possum food (1)

We’re used to finding the local possums have raided our garden (and like to raid the fruit bowl in the house), but now we’ve discovered the little critters are eating the new growth on our calliandra next to the house. I’d wondered why the plant looked so crook, and rarely has flowers on it these days. The calliandra has been there for many years, and it appears that the possum might be struggling to get food it likes (netting on the garden seems to be working!) so has taken to nibbling on the shrub enroute to the taller trees in the yard.
