Around the Mulberry Bush

August 29, 2013 Photo of the day: "Mulberries"

The first time I wore my new shoes, I avoided my usual shortcut across the school lawn, fearing the morning dew would ruin my suede flats. Ironically, the sidewalk was covered in fresh preserves that stained my soles crimson. The tree above my head was heavy with glossy black, red, and peach berries. I was tempted to taste one, but decided it was more prudent to take a picture. Research revealed that these lovely mulberries make delicious tarts, jams, wines, and tea.  Oh well, better safe than sorry!
