Ash Trees

I have been noticing ash trees this spring. Late bloomers, they are the last tree to leaf out.

On Monday I went sketching with a sixteen year old and we drew ash trees. I drew another one today. Ash Tree: The Scandinavian sacred Cosmic Tree, the Yggdrasil, the Tree of Life. The ash also typifies adaptability, prudence, modesty.

Love the tree in three sections: upper, middle and lower world...
Some interesting tree synchronicity going on at present.

i think that jim croft says ash is the best wood for wooden board covers for books...and the choice of medieval book makers. ancient and deeply proper,
