As well as roadside sentinels that I can drive under, I also look for trees that arch over sidewalks and pathways that I can stroll under. The closer the leaves are to my hat the better. It’s shady and cooler under the branches, and the best adventures are when branches, bark, birds, and butterflies are close at hand. The next time you’re at the Almonte post office, I hope you’ll stop to see the white mulberry tree growing between the parking lot and the town’s Riverwalk.
Behind the parking lot, the municipality’s Riverwalk passes beneath the canopy of Almonte’s post office mulberry.
