No armistice here!

It's ANZAC Day in Australia, commemorating the pure folly that was the Dardanelles Campaign in World War 1. 

Here, at the front in Burwood, the war continues.

The above rat trap, on a brick wall, is what protects these tamarillos...

from the fate of the apple tree at the other end of the brick wall:

Sure the net helps a bit bit, but didn't stop the possums.  A few sore toes did.

  1. I hope your tamarillos survive, your apple tree looks very sad.
    Next door has a mandarin tree which is netted but it does not stop the possums from helping themselves as I find half-eaten mandarins in my garden...such a waste of fruit when it has just been nibbled at and discarded.
