Mulberry Tree

Shamrocks and Mulberry Tree photo by Karen Smith

I took this photo at the beginning of spring in an blog posts about weeds everywhere I was not referring of course to the shamrocks or the mulberry but the little yellow flower plant in the upper right corner.  Which got to stay it course by the way.  Working on yard eco systems much as possible.

I have taken a picture of this Mulberry Tree now about two months later and it has grown like a weed.

It is dark in the photo and I hope you can tell that it has grown by a foot and 3/4 of a foot in little over a month.  I bought this as a cutting about six inches long and it grew very little the first year I planted it.  So I am proud it is growing now.  The mulberry takes about ten years to grow fruit and well gets larger then I had thought so now I am looking into learning if it is possible to keep it trimmed to a size I would like.
