A Mulberry Tree! In our backyard!

Over P's spring break we took care of the silk worms in her classroom.  In order to get this "priveledge" you had to have a Mulberry tree handy.  Silk worms only eat Mulberry leaves and they eat a lot of them. They need new leaves daily, hence why you need to have access to a tree.

I knew P wanted to take the worms home so I looked all over our neighborhood for a Mulberry tree.  It didn't even occur to me to look in our own back yard.  It wasn't until I brought a leaf home from school,  that I realized we have a Mulberry tree!  I guess it takes having a 3-year old and her school "pets" to figure out what's growing in our own yard...and to learn more than I ever wanted to know about silk worms! 

On another note;  I really need to power wash and paint the house!  Those walls are starting to bug me too much.
