Some of you may remember that a long time ago I posted a picture of what I always think of as "the perfect tree". It's a type of rowan and has white blossom, followed by red berries and then the leaves turn an attractive red before falling. But more amazing is that it retains a neat 'storybook tree' shape, without being trimmed or pruned. I love it, and I like its location with Saltaire's Salts Mill in the background. Being stripped bare of leaves, winter reveals its inner secrets - not just one bird's nest but three, hidden deep in the branches.
