The other day I was sitting under the mulberry tree and I heard a strange noise – like water droplets falling on the vine (but it wasn’t raining, and the vine wasn’t being watered!)
I took this little video – turn up the volume and listen very carefully
The noise is the vine, popping those little shells off it’s flowers – see –
Have you ever heard anything like that?
It’s been happening every day since – just after the sun moves west over the wall so that after being in warm sunlight all day, the vine is now in the shade.
Oh, and at the same time, dozens of bees make their way to vine to find the nectar which has just been made available.
