We have this wonderful tree in our yard that I think of as an umbrella tree because its circles of leaves have spokes. When I came back this fall, lo and behold, it had sprouted berries on the top. Or perhaps they are tiny flowers that just look rather like raspberries; I can't tell. Now the tree looks even more like something out of Dr. Seuss.

I have a bird book coming in a box which is no doubt sitting in customs, but meanwhile I'm still wondering what these little yellow ones are. Anyone know? Next on the search list: the name of the umbrella tree.

I'm headed out to the porch for more prayer time now. I doubt I'll see the birds this afternoon, because the near-daily afternoon/evening thunderstorm has arrived a bit earlier than usual. I'll give thanks nevertheless.
