Mulberries



They are ripe now, these succulent mulberries. Unfortunately, I won't get any.
The mulberry tree near the house is full of berries. It is also full of squirrels.
They get them before we can, and the birds get what the squirrels leave.


I can remember how good they were when we picked them right off the tree and ate a 'bait' of them.

Some battles, you just can't win. 

I have my memories.
