Have you ever seen anything like the Rowan berries this year?
The Rowan or Mountain Ash (Sorbus aucuparia) is having a bonanza year – it makes delicious jelly with a little added crab apple – they often grow nearby.
Rowan has all sorts of folklore attached to it – in Norse mythology it is the tree from which the first woman was made; in theUK it protects against witchcraft – you can read more in – guess what? An Illustrated Country Year
Just one more photo – amazing isnt it?
