ASH IN AUTUMN

The ashes in our street are wearing their yellow leaves now that Autumn is well and truly here...

Fraxinus excelsior (known as the ash, or European ash or common ash to distinguish it from other types of ash) is a species of Fraxinus native to most of Europe from Portugal to Russia, with the exception of northern Scandinavia and southern Iberia. It is also considered native in southwestern Asia from northern Turkey east to the Caucasus and Alborz mountains. The northernmost location is in the Trondheimsfjord region of Norway. The species is widely cultivated and reportedly naturalised in New Zealand and in scattered locales in the United States, Canada and Australia.
