    I've never had a mulberry - do they taste like blackberries?

  4. A little like blackberries, Leah, but they have a distinctive punch at the end. It is because of this that you must have sugar with them, so they are not good on their own but tasty in jams and baked goods.

  5. Love all the Nature!! You are so lucky to live near a beach. Aren't Robin eggs beautiful? Love James' pictures. He did a great job. I also love the Nature journal.

  6. My James loves to take pics also. He has supplied as many of the nature pics on our blog as I have. You did a great job of photo-journaling your month. I love the orange flower thingy. What is it?

    Sketching outside is a real challenge for us. We need to do it more. Thanks for including that.

  7. I must say that the color of the robin's egg has to be in my top five favorite colors. :)

  8. Kay -The orange flower is a type of honeysuckle.
