A taste of summer
Shortly after a rogue sun shower, my favorite kind, I went out and picked mulberries from the two trees in the yard, with thoughts of making tarts. Standing on a rickety wooden ladder, I managed to collect a good amount of the sweet tart berries, much to the dismay of the birds. They hollered and hooted their displeasure at me as I took the ripest, sweetest berries in the trees. There was one very brave bird who would swoop from limb to limb on the other side of the tree from where I was perched, yelling its little head off at me as I took away their snacks. Sorry birdies. Even though I can't fly, I'm taller and have a colander. Here are the fruits of my labour..... just enough for one largish tart!
And here is the large tart! yummmmm.....
