Ancient Mulberry at Ginter Gardens

Those of you who have been to Ginter Gardens in Richmond, VA, know this tree. It is an old mulberry, at the Childrens Garden- go and pay your respects this venerable life form!

Judy,

That tree was the very tree my son Jimmy climbed and loved as a child. Long before the gardens were what they are today. He has a friend that lived in what is now a classroom at the Gardens and it was rented out to people. The tree is amazing. I will forward the video to Jimmy who is in Afghanistan. He will enjoy seeing his old haunts. Thank you. Mary Ann
