Good morning. Today is nonidi, the 29th of Brumaire, Year CCXXXI. We celebrate le cormier, a domesticated version of the checker tree.
Of all the sorbus trees out there, the one that's the most famous is undoubtedly the rowan tree (Sorbus aucuparia). It fends off witches! It saved Thor's life! It can fly! From its signature red berries to its wood that's the perfect hardness for carving insignia, the rowan tree is tailor-made to join the superheroes of the Marvel or DC universes.
