Bird rejects

DAY 218 (9 NOVEMBER) – Kashmir rowan (Sorbus cashmiriana) (Farnham)

I may be getting a bit above myself, but when plantnet.org identified these as snowberries I had a hunch they were wrong… That’s because I’d already featured snowberries in August and these didn’t look the same. So I asked my nephew Tim who is an expert horticulturalist. I was right! They are something else: Kashmir rowan.

The white berries last much longer into winter than red rowan berries – because birds don’t like them much. But I thought these, down by the art college, were pretty eye-catching.
