Birmingham, AL: Mulberries

Now that the cold winter has finally slunk away, every day in this springtime gives my soul bounce. 

When I spied the mulberries on the park path yesterday, oh sweetness! 

How they took me back to another welcome spring - in Rustavi, Caucasus Georgia:

Georgia: The Tutebi are Here

Rustavi, Georgia. White tuta (mulberry)



There are black tutas and white tutas. In the plural, they are tutebi.

Mulberries! Beloved here. They do taste good.


The black tutas have peaked, I think, and all that I found at one tree were those which had fallen onto the ground.

I had a mulberry tree in Missouri, but never saw any fruit. Evidently, it was a male, therefore fruitless.

thanks for the reminder of the first time I tasted mulberries. I was volunteering to escort abortion patients into the clinic in Falls Church, VA and they had a mulberry tree next to the driveway.
I made lasting friendships with other escorts there.
Thanks for the memories.
