I think it probably means we have had a very unusual Spring, Summer and Fall this year.  Very cold and late spring, very hot and dry summer followed by rain, rain rain.   I am watching this plant to see if green berries appear but I think the blooms were too late for bees and such to pollenate.  (reply...)

it typically is a low shrub (kind of juniper sized) when it isn't munched by moose. It's one of their favourite conifers to eat.  (reply...)

Thanks, Lessa for the ID. I checked on the internet and it looks the same. after thinking back, I only saw them growing on the northwest to the northeast side of hills always a damp area and a small brook running which never dries up. also didn't see any with stems bigger that my finger. (reply...)

That is unusual! People always use the dogberries to predict snow (when tree is heavy with dogberries, there will be lots of snow). That was true last winter! I wonder what it means if there are also blossoms? (reply...)

That must be an introduction to the island, isn't it? (reply...)

Looks like Canada Yew (Taxus Canadensis). The moose love it, so you don't see it much. I didn't know it was called Palm! It's very flexible wood (Robin Hood had a bow made from Yew). (reply...)
