Rowans

I love rowans. There are several big rowans in our garden. They had lots of berries this year, but now hundreds of thrushes are eating all they can before they move south.

These rowans are from a small island in the Gulf of Bothnia:

Either there has been sheep grazing, or someone has cut the lowe branches. Beautiful! We saw them in Midsummer this year. The rowans had already bloomed on the mainland, but out there by the sea they bloom later.

These are our rowans:

The thrushes have eaten all the berries from the top of the bushlike rowans, while the tall tree like rowan still has it's berries left, but for how long?
