All around the mulberry bush, the Aidan chased the...mulberries...
Aidan, It's spring, and that means that our mulberry tree hanging over the deck is LOADED with berries. Or at least it tries to stay loaded with berries despite your best Pac-man-esque efforts.
It only took you a few days of the first berry falling to discover that YOU LOVED EATING BERRIES.
Many red faces, hands and knees later, you're still eating them faster than we can spray them off the deck.
Last year you didn't notice them. But this year, you can get enough.
You even taught the dogs that they're yummy...and now you sometimes fight over them. But, there's plenty to go around, so mostly you share them.
I've climbed up in the tree to get you some fresh ones, of course.
And you even were able to pick some off the tree yourself!
But mostly, you crawl around the deck on all fours, chomping away as you go. The Aidan chases the mulberries. He thought it was all in fun...and he was right...except for the rapid response bowel and urinary response from said berries. But, a few accident and a heavily 'watered' bush at the end of the stairs, and we're no worse for the wear. No stains on this spring...but I wouldn't be surprised if you didn't have permanent mulberry stains on your knees!
Oh, and by the way, they're called "Cool Berries!"
