Mulberries

You would think that after living somewhere for six years one would know what’s in one’s yard, but remember, I have a big yard. Thus it came as a bit of a surprise to me recently to discover that I have a mulberry tree on the edge of my property; here’s one of the mulberries. Now all I need is a bunch of silkworms and I’m ready to begin a second business.

The thing I like best about the mulberry tree? Asymmetrical, non-repeating leaf forms. God help me, I’m such a geek.
