..I found this little guy huddled under a bunch of alders I was trimming out of the overgrown ‘ditch’ out near the main road in. I could not cut him down like the rest of the doomed trees..a diamond in the rough..so I dug him out and later When the work was done I planted him in the rear side of our new flower bed from a week ago. We always had mountain ash in our yard growing up. Nice orange berries in the fall.
We all do our part for road chores. I trimmed up the ditches and some of the other folks laid down some fresh gravel..winter is coming.
