Mountain Ash Tree in Bearing
The avidity with which robin and other species of feathered bon vivants consume the fruit of the mountain ash suggests that these berries have qualities that might appeal to the human palate, if somewhat modified. Mr. Burbank has acted upon this suggestion, and has brought the mountain ash into his garden and taken it under tutelage. The results will be shown in later pictures.
