Sorbus aucuparia

This is a lovely tree that anchors the bed, holds the bird feeders and produces masses of red berries for the blackbirds. I have once made rowanberry jelly from them but I had to cut them early before the birds got them and it's quite tart (despite the trick of freezing the berries first) so I leave them all for the birds now.
