During November I want to see trees or leaves or anything found in a woodland environment

(this can include individual trees or leaves or woodland/forest views, fungi, wildlife or wildflowers – it can be of an autumnal flavour or anytime in the year, up to you)

During my recent trip up north I was very much taken by all the rowan trees in Scotland full to bursting with juicy red (and sometimes yellow) berries. On my return I did some research and discovered that the more fashionable name for these trees is Sorbus – the Latin name is sorbus aucuparia – or mountain ash, though it has nothing to do with the common ash tree.

  1. Hi Jude,,,,,,absolutely love the Rowan Berries. I have not seen them before. Scotland must be an incredible place and I am looking forward to getting there one day from Australia! Thank you.

  2. Love the composition of the first one, that lovely smooth hill to the left. Rowans are pretty special: Morskie Oko had a small grove, and the next street along form here-home is lined with them.

  3. A tree I actually know! … and I really like the Mountain Ash, especially at this time of year with their bright red berries. Our neighbour behind us has a large Mountain Ash in their backyard and it’s very popular with the birds.

      1. I don’t see a lot of them here either. I read once that when property owners are selecting trees to plant, they often reject trees that could ‘leave a mess’ with berries, fruit, even flower petals. Sad, but true.

  4. They really do stand out these little festooned trees , I’ve seen a number round and about too Jude . My holly is rather well endowed with clusters of berries too this year … hmm it’s got me thinking … cold chills on the way for sure . Lovely landscape in the background too .

    1. There does seem to be a lot of berries around this year – hips, haws, holly berries, blackberries – hopefully it is just because we had that lovely warm September and not a forecast of harsh things to come.
