Rowan and Wood Cocks

Final Kingairloch blind and cushion…with a distinctly autumnal feel. I love this blind. Rowan trees are everywhere on this island, especially in front gardens as they were thought to bring good luck to the homeowner. We recently had to cut one down that was only just surviving after three quarters had toppled in a storm and the rest was being fed by a half rotten thread of bark. I felt very uneasy at the prospect of death to rowan (obviously dwelling on the possibility of chainsawing all potential future luck into little rayburn sized pieces) but really (she concludes nervously) we were doing it a favour. I do hope the ancestors agree.

Anyhow, the rowan blind has vivid orange berries and shimmers with vitality and maybe it can be a much loved and appreciated memorial to the lost rowan of Ballimackillichan croft.
