Coreopsis and a Treat for the Birds

Coreopsis is in bloom. You can see these yellow flowers with the fringe-tipped petals growing around the Sailboat Pond in Catch the Wind.

Much to the delight of many bird species as well as some Museum guests and myself, Red Mulberries are ripe – they’re very tasty. There are a number of Red Mulberry Trees growing along the Explore the Wild and Catch the Wind Loop. One particularly prolific specimen is growing on the right side of the path just as you leave Catch the Wind towards the Lemur House.
