This is my first time uploading, so please forgive me if I haven't done it correctly! These pictures were taken with my phone camera, and I could not
get them perfectly in focus, but I think they are close enough to see what I'm asking.
The first picture, while blurry, shows two berries from the same tree, they are whitish and bright red. Now, I am pretty sure that this is a Mulberry
tree. I am trying to figure out what kind. If the berries were just white, I'd say white mulberry, and if they were just red, I'd say the american red
mulberry. But with both colors, from what I've researched, is it safe to assume that this is a hybrid of the two? Also, I know the berries are edible,
does anyone know of any medicinal uses for any parts of this tree? I am trying to start a catalog of the edible and medicinal herbs/weeds/trees etc in
my immediate vicinity.
The second picture is a close up of the leaf of the Mulberry tree (pretty sure its a mulberry, seeking confirmation). Because the leaf is not lobed, I
want to say its a white mulberry. But I didn't know they would have two colors of berries?? Hybrid? How do I know when the berries are ripe for
The third picture is a low growing flower I came across. Again, it's a horrible picture, but it looks so unique maybe someone might recognize it? (If
the pic is too bad, I will try to get back out and get a better one, with my real camera this time).
The last picture I just thought was neat because of the butterfly, but if anyone knows what the white flowers are, that would be great too!
Also, if it helps, I am located on the eastern coast of North Carolina.
Question: The pictures are rotated properly on my computer, but when I upload them there are turned sideways. I can't seem to figure out how to fix
that, could someone help me out?
