They are really heavy with berries this year, like I've never seen them.

The Rowan or Mountain ash is exceptionally gorgeous this year. The silk tails, or Bohemian Waxwings as they're fancily known as, won't eat them until they freeze I only recently learned.

Quote:Waxwings can be very tame in winter, entering towns and gardens in search of food, rowan berries being a particular favourite. They can metabolise alcohol produced in fermenting fruit, but can still become intoxicated, sometimes fatally.


The drunktard birds are just waiting for it aren't they? 13.gif It's not frosted here yet

Did it flower? June was cold as a mofo over here and I was worried about pollination, but unnecessarily it seems.

Quite a large population of ash trees here in Ontario are being devasted by the Emerald ash borer beetle.

I actually had an tree doctor come to look at my Mulberry tree (growing massively well) and my neighbor's ash (humungous) and give me a pruning quote. Anyway, he said the ash tree is dying from insects and that it will be a nightmare to deal with.

My mother's neighbourhood's ash trees (quite a few of them) have recently been seriously been invested and when I drove around a few weeks ago, it was very noticeable that the City removed many of them.

It did flower but I never got the bees back this year, the owners of the bees had 70% die off over the winter tissueguy.gif
