Merry multicolored mulberries

Drooping fruity loopy drupelets

Similar in appearance to blackberries but growing on more of a tree than a viny bush, these mulberries add small splashes of red, pink, and dark purple to their otherwise all-green environs.

This tree is on the bank of one of the park creeks and is probably either a red or white mulberry (Morus rubra or Morus alba).
