Finding the rare mulberry was a fun day.  As so often happens I was looking for other things.  I started looking for garlic mustard, for a student that wanted samples.  I found none, which is a really good outcome when you're looking for an invasive species.  But I did find a very rare orchid that I had never seen before.  So then I was looking for more orchids, walking through the woods watching the ground.  And I put my foot down next to a really big, really interesting fallen leaf.  What is that!?  Where did it come from?  And behold, we have a new red mulberry location.
