Mulberry Pie

Our Mulberry tree started as a pesky weed a few years ago. When it got a little bigger, Seth said he was going to get it out of the ground, but I asked him to let it stay because it provided some much needed shade on the back part of our driveway. When it got big enough, it began producing berries, enough to taste and to share with the kids...but this year, this year there are berries upon berries upon berries. The kids pick them and eat them and they pick them and save them for later. Flocks (I'm not kidding, whole flocks) of birds perch in the tree and dine. Tomorrow, I'm baking a pie. Seriously. There are enough berries for a whole pie. Maybe even two. Yum.

Your yard is looking amazing!!! It is an inspiration to me to get my act together and fix the "flower bed" on the side of my house that is all volunteer plants!!
