Ash out of Sycamore


Ash out of Sycamore (c) John Bainbridge 2016


The other day when we were out rambling, we saw this strange oddity of nature. An ash tree growing out of a notch in a sycamore tree, and apparently thriving. Trees are quite wonderful.


One thought on “Ash out of Sycamore

  1. I find that fairly common actually – ashes are basically a pernicious weed and will grow absolutely anywhere. I’m not sure what all the panic is about ‘ash dieback’ as I must have at least 10 on my lawn this summer and remove several annually from various bits of my garden.
