A classic orange berried tree in our woods, the Rowan tree or Mountain Ash has these beautiful thick sprays of blossoms, which mirror the bunches of berries to follow, of course. Prior to this project, I had never connected them with what was to follow. Technically this is a fruit blossom, though the fruit is not one we enjoy as the taste is apparently not pleasant and it’s used mostly in concoctions against various ills (with no research to back up any claims apparently). The birds don’t seem to mind though and the odd one will get intoxicated from it. The floor is always carpeted with orange in the fall. Have a lovely day! A Flower a Day #308 (NB while I make every effort to identify the flowers posted, I make no guarantee that the name is correct. It’s about the photograph, not the name.:-) )

The July Flower a Day Gallery with current content is below. Each day a new photo will be added. With today’s post there are now 308 to view on the full Flower a Day gallery.
A gallery of flowers shared on a daily basis to cheer myself and hopefully you, the viewer too, during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic period. Posts from July 2021
