While hanging out the washing on another glorious day, I noticed the mulberry tree is starting to fruit. The berries are red, and looking wonderful. So I got the camera, and when I moved closer found this;
So I ate it. Yum.
It's not actually our tree, but hangs over the fence from our neighbours.
This seems really early to be getting ripe fruit, but it's been a while since I lived with a mulberry tree, so who knows.
My thoughts are turning to pies, ice cream, scones, jam....
Pity the new diet has (nearly) started.
