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.
