Sunday Snap ~ The Magical Rowan

Rowan Berries

“Rowan is the tree of power, causing life and magic to flower.”

In Ireland, 2013 will be remembered for its abundance of fruit. If you were so inclined you might like to make a vitamin C rich jelly from the berries that are currently dripping from the trees like the one Hugh Fearnly-Whittingstall wrote for The Guardian. Alternatively, leave them for our feathered friends who can feast before the coming winter months ahead.

    Lovely photo Dee. I didn’t realise until now that it was possible to use the Rowan berries for making jelly. Pity I don’t have any growing here….. might just nip over the ditch to the neighbours garden 🙂

      Thanks Mary 🙂 no I wasn’t sure hence googling and finding The Guardian recipe. There’s lots of old lore surrounding the Sorbus, this could have been a much longer post (how Hugh’s the fence 😉
