Long Dead Mulberry.

A magnificent Mulberry tree lived a quiet life in our garden for over 150 years. Three summers ago, it keeled over and crashed to the ground. It's passing left an actual and a spiritual hole in the garden. This week we ate the last of the jam made from the berries of that sorely missed tree. It would be interesting to know who planted the tree all those years ago. We have planted another Mulberry tree. After three years it is still but a twig. Given the pressure to build houses in gardens, I would not bet on the tree seeing it's 150th planting day.
