Through the Seasons: Rowan







Popup another window containing the Individual images.


The Rowan, also know as Mountain Ash, is a berry forming deciduous tree.

Here is a young Rowan photographed in 2003 planted as a sapling in Winter 1991 contemporary with our sequenced subject.

Typical growth is to form clumps of flowers near the ends of branches that develop into 100 or so berries. The birds love the berries which are quickly eaten distributing the seeds in their droppings.

Reality Note: The sequence was photographed in 2006. The berry clumps become very heavy and the branches generally sag downward as the fruits develop. This effect has been removed from the sequence because it make it difficult to follow.
