Mulberry time in Bushwick

Mulberry_Tree_Bushwick.jpg


It's Mulberry time, but it seems that today mostly only birds know about the delights available for the taking on these beautiful trees native to the Northeast. My first delicious Mulberry experience was in Rhode Island, where I spotted one many years ago on the street with the fitting name Benefit. It was planted directly in front of my favorite library, the Providence Athenaeum. I think it's still there.

The branch shown above is part of a tree in Bushwick, where it dominates the little garden behind Pocket Utopia.
