midsummer mulberries

Amulet and I got a good soaking picking mulberries after a rainstorm ...







The ripe ones just fall off the tree on their own ... especially when the branches are heavy & wet.  This is all I could scavenge from the kids.



This is all that made it into the actual bowl ...



Magnus wants to like them - but  he just can't get there.



I love how wild she is ...



One last thing ...

flowering trees are good for the heart ...

my Magnolia trees are so beautiful this spring ...





Most of the blooms are now all the way open.




This is the view from my window ... the farmer's side of the lake and one Magnolia tree not yet fully opened.


Was smacked in the face with wet pink petals flying off the trees this morning.
