Thank you all for your responses regarding my posts on the rowan-tree.
If anyone wishes to pass them along, you have my permission (just keep
my address with it so that others can reach me if need be, please).
Tree lore is an especial favourite of mine, and if anyone would like
similar renditions of other species, I'll try to pass what I can find
about them along.  As you know, trees and plants are often referenced
in folksongs, etc., with their original meaning buried in folklore.
As a postscript, I forgot to mention that while "luis" is the early Irish
name for rowan, "cerddinen" is the Welsh.  I've also seen cerdinen.

--------------------------[whose weather, incidently, has reached new heights
in its famed volatility, as the last 24 hours have seen Fahrenheit temps from
the 30s to 56 to the 30s again to 61 and a violent thunderstorm to the current
conditions of snow after freezing rain, with temps in the 20s.--Just a typical
late winter day in the Bluegrass. :) ]----------------------------------------
