Photo of the Week-From my Window
As the sun sets on the opposite side of the house, it lends a golden glow to the trees in my backyard and especially to this graceful little Mulberry tree that I love. I don't usually care much for the Mulberries because they leaf out so late in the spring and lose their leaves so early in the fall. But this is the one I saved from destruction when the thicket back there was being cleared. It was just a twig and all bent over from the vines that had captured it, but I staked it up and demanded that it be given a chance to survive. I may have blogged about this before but some of you may have missed it. Anyway, I think it looks so pretty at this time of day. I took this on Friday of last week and we were "treated" to another snowstorm on Saturday. Below you can see some of the neighborhood birds that were happy to have something to eat during the storm. I filled up that feeder just in time!
