Weeping Mulberry

We have been in our house now for 10 months and we are still getting new surprises in our garden. We have a beautiful weeping mulberry out the front. I'd always assumed ours was an ornamental non-fruiting type.
Aparently I was wrong. It is covered in fruit.
Under the tree is one of the girls favourite places. It is nice and shady and great for dancing and hiding.

We had a mulberry tree when I was a kid - and you are right, we used to play under it for hours...

Silk worms! You can feed them the mulberry leaves.

yummy yum yum, I LOVE mulberries. My sister has an enormous VERY old tree on the farm and it is always a teat to pick and eat mulberries. Enjoy.

I'm thinking there will be no white t-shirts under that mulberry tree when the fruit ripens up!

We have silkworms & they are the best kids pet ever...all you need to remember is the feed them mulberry leaves!
