Mulberry!

Thanks to the internet I was able to identify a volunteer tree in my yard. Thanks must also go to whichever bird planted it for me. :)






Naturally the birds have taken most of the fruit, but I'm happy to have a mulberry tree. Aren't the leaves strange? I wonder why they take different shapes on the same tree.

I think it is great how the leaves are so unique...so would you make wine if you got a harvest off the tree?

This is a bit like a swiss cheese plant. The bottom leaves are bot divided but become more divided as you move up the plant. Apparently it's natures way of making sure the leaves at the bottom aren't too shaded.

We have a bird planted daphne in our garden.
