Spread the Good Word
It sure has been noisy around here. The birds are making such a racket, there's no doubt that spring has sprung. What a wide variety of songs I've been hearing. I wasn't brave enough to lay on the ground and wait for them to congregate above me for a better picture. These two guys didn't fly away like the rest.
The hot topic must be that the mulberry tree will have soon have ripe berries. I took this photo a few days ago.
I read recently, that when the mulberry tree leafed out, it was a sign that the danger of hard frost was past. Have you ever heard that?
The mulberry tree is the tallest tree that I have. It was planted by accident. About 20 years ago,when my son was 10 or 11, my mother-in-law gave him some small trees that she has thinned from her yard. She thought they were all shade trees. He planted them and put in a drip line to water them. Only one tree survived. I am so glad that he planted it outside the fence!
