April 29, 2011: The mulberries are ripening. Oooooh no. Last year there was practically an EPIDEMIC of these things, I don’t know what the deal was, but there were SO MANY, like about 4 inches thick of them on the ground, no exaggeration. It was absolutely disgusting and impossible to keep the floors clean. And this year looks to be the same, tree is loaded down with them. Yuck. The purple blob is one of the berries. I got plenty of shots where the berries were clear but this one was much more interesting. This is probably it for today, NOT in good shape and planning to do as little as possible and just lie on the couch watching a Project Runway marathon.
