Does the Hawthorn grow where you live?
What a tree! I will be burning lots of Hawthorn this weekend, cooking and hanging around the campfire, if it wasn't for those sharp prickles it would be the ideal tree.
I took this a couple of days ago down in Childrens Wood - alongside the river the council planted a tree for every child born in the borough for a couple of years, a nice idea. I wouldn't mind if 'my' tree had been a Hawthorn, shame I am about 30 years too old and from a couple of hundred miles north!
As I am away with the Scouts this weekend I may not be able to post for a few days - see you soon.
