The Mountain Ash

The treetop gathering of cedar wax wings and robins was called off this year because of last year’s drought. The few berries on the mountain ash tree were picked through in an afternoon. Not the usual joyful and noisy convocation heralding spring.
We don’t tend to look up to the treetops or watch the robins looking for the fruits of last year’s blooms.
