Giving Tree: The Red Mulberry   10 comments

Mother Nature provides. 


The red mulberry tree in our yard is laden with fruit.

  The grass offers a cushion for the fruit upon descent. I carefully manuever around the yard to gather breakfast.




The mulberry tree is one of the top seven most-important plants for numerous birds species. I have witnessed birds fall out of the tree. The squirrels and rabbits enjoy the sweet fruit as well.





A cup of mulberries has only 60 calories. They are rich in antioxidants, fiber, vitamins K and C, potassium, riboflavin, iron, magnesium, and potassium.




Enjoy your day!

 The towering mulberry tree in our front yard provides for various local animal’s daily nutrition. The photo above is of mulberries awaiting ripening.

    I have found that the fallen berries found lying in the grass are far more tasty than picking from the mulberry tree.

Enjoy your day!
