  1. Wow. What a beautiful tree. I had never seen a Mulbery tree until today.

    • Yes it is lovely, but not really the normal type of mulberry (typically Morus nigra, which is loaded with delicious blackberry-like fruits). This one has tiny orange finger-like fruits that emerge from that papery sphere in autumn. Apparently you can try to eat them, even if they are tiny!

    Another new one for me. Are the fruits edible, they don’t look like it.

    I know the feeling 🙂

    The color certainly is luscious. Is that the fruit, hidden behind all that tangled purple?
