Aug. 21, 2011 -- mulberry leaves

The natural things that interested me most in the garden today were mulberry leaves.  I like the way all mulberry leaves turn yellow green and get spotty before falling, but these are particularly pretty. They're on a contorted mulberry and bigger than ordinary mulberry leaves. Brought a few in and first put them in long, low container. That looked ok, but you couldn't really see the beauty of the individual leaves, so I pulled one out and put it in vase by itself. In that photo (the second one) are two gourds, too. The gourds are fun, because I didn't plant them; they volunteered below a big viburnum and produced about 6 gourds before I pulled the vine out!
