Re: tent cat/birds/mulberries

I never got to climb a mulberry tree, but as a toddler I ate a lot from low
branches. That smell still reminds me of the collie we had then. He watched
me & made sure I stayed in the yard. No one was allowed near me if Prince
was on duty.
Beautiful gardens Lynda. I'm envious of your topography & rockwork. I'm used
to my level yard, but had to build some berms for my gardens. I grew up on
hillsides and need some variety, I guess. How nice that you have a neighbor
who cares about greenspace and is able to protect it. That is priceless.
