As previously mentioned. the mulberry tree is about to go crazy.
This tree is about two stories tall and about as wide. When we moved in it was a solid green monstrous mass, occupying a huge amount of the backyard. The branches were so weighed down they crept along the ground. It took a chainsaw to reign it in and we even discovered a shed beneath it.
Ruben and I chat about it’s ethereal quality as we work our way through The Magic Faraway Tree, his current favourite. His new found enthusiasm for a chapter based book is delightful. I do so hope his love of books is something that he embraces for a long time to come.
Side note: one of his current sayings that tickles my happy bone – “sharing is care bears”.
