I walk past this Rowan tree on my way to work and on a bright day with blue sky it always catches my eye. I took this photograph at the end of November but the tree is still full of bright red fruit.
At the weekend I saw two blackbirds sitting in it having a feast but I didn’t have my camera with me. It would be good to have a photograph of it with the addition of a bird or two!
The Rowan is from the Sorbus family and has many alternative common names including the Mountain Ash. I love these trees – they are small enough for most gardens and have year round interest: flowers; fruit; Autumn colour and pretty leaves.
