Rowan in flower

The Rowan or Mountain Ash is the latest tree to come into bloom at Filnore Woods.


The creamy flower heads show up on the edge of the woodland.

The leaves are similar to ash leaves but the leaflets on each compound leaf are more toothed.  It is only this similarity which gives it the name of 'mountain ash'.  The two trees are unrelated.
