Rosaceae Week : Eberesche – Sorbus aucuparia (Rowan, European Rowan, Mountain ash, or European mountain ash) from my garden in Ritterhude:  Sorbus aucuparia (Rowan, European Rowan, Mountain ash, or European mountain ash, germanname Eberesche (Vogelbeere), loved by insects and in winter by many birds, because the red berries on a snowcovered tree can be easily found by birds. Human beings too like the fruits to make jam.

Fotos in my Garden in Ritterhude taken in the last few years, could not find a foto of flowers.

the tree here is from the back lane of Warsaw house I was putting in. Please identify it.

looks like Eberesche Vogelbeerbaum (berries for birds) as we call it.

very good food for birds especially in snowi winters.
