We Went to Pick Mulberries
... weeks ago and I completely forgot about it until today when I was looking through the pictures. Ok, so we went to pick mulberries a couple of weeks ago. Maybe it isn't all that long ago, but it sure feels like it.
Still, it's a lovely park and M and I went on a stroll there one day. Surprisingly, M wanted to go into the woods and walk on the trails. I'm all about that since it's much more pleasant in the deep shade than in the blazing sun. Plus the woods are just the best place to be in the spring because everything is blooming and the air smells so sweet and clear, you really image you are out in the middle of nowhere exploring.
And whadda ya know? As we were walking along the narrow hiking trails, noticing all different birds (the place is terrific for bird-watching) and frogs and a few rabbits, we found a few mulberry bushes near the gravel road on the far side of the meadow.
