River of Flowers

Rowan (Mountain Ash)

This tree is about 20 years old and grew from a berry that one of my 2 boys picked in the grounds of a Museum in York whilst on holiday.

It grows in the really wild part of the garden in the shadow of a very large Acer, I usually forget to check it until the flowers have been and gone. This is the first photo I've ever taken of it.
