Mulberry Tree: a fruity, berry blend with cherries, apples, peaches, strawberries and tangerines, and a hint of vanilla. You can almost see the purple mulberry stains on your fingers!

Just an update and a thank you for everyone who thought about and prayed for my folks - very appreciated and very humbling.
I spoke to my folks yesterday and they are fine. The expected peak for the water at 14 meters wasn't reached and although there are countless houses that went underwater - my parents and brothers were spared.
I guess the big cleanup starts now - hopefully the rain will ease and there won't be a repeat.
Again, thanks to everyone who sent their concern, I am truly grateful. I hope to be able to get back to St George for a visit this year. It may be sooner than I had planned now.
Hope you all had a great weekend and a good week ahead.
Annie and Family

What is a bit scary too, is that since this whole region has been drought ridden since I was a small girl, how many of the people who live there will have insurance for flood cover? My parents, brother and his family have been trying to raise their household goods up today and we believe the water will be about a foot into my parents yard sometime tonight - if the water continues to rise as they fear, their house will have water inside it tomorrow. And their house is 4 blocks away from the river!! I know that they don't have flood cover. But you know, we will deal with that if or when it happens and as long as they are alive and kicking.... I don't care.
Send out a prayer or two tonight, though, if you wouldn't mind. Thanks, Annie
