The Hawthorn is such a beautiful tree. Remember the blossom?

HawthornThese are pictures of the fruit of the Hawthorn tree that you may download and use as you wish but I would not use them on Christmas cards, I will give you Holly and Mistletoe for that, these are more pagan and sultry.

I would not describe the Hawthorn as a sexy tree but it is very warm and sensuous, I would describe it as more like a mother and a giver. It is pagan and it needs to be loved.

  1. I’ll wait for your Holly & Mistletoe. I’ve never seen Mistletoes up close – only from a distance.

    (4 years ago, I used one of my first photos of Mahonia leaves and flowers for my Christmas cards. The leaves are so much like the Holly. And although the flowers are yellow, there seemed to be plenty of red in the image to give that traditional red & green colour range).

  2. Where I live about ten miles west of Ballarat the are rows and rows of Hawthorn hedges. They are great windbreaks which help the baby lambs but under their roots hide foxes which help themselves to the baby lambs.
    But they are very pretty in blossom and every now and then a pink one occurs which is quite startling.

    1. Thanks John 🙂 I have never seen a pink Hawthorn. A couple of mornings ago I watched a Fox sneaking through the orchard amongst the Sheep. The lambs are well grown now and too big for a fox. What was surprising was that the Sheep didn’t react to it at all. The Fox ignored them and they ignored him and I thought that if it had been a Dog they would have bolted. They obviously know the difference between a Dog and a Fox.

  3. Hips & Haws. Any haws about in your red zone? We used to break them open and use the seeds to make people itch, putting them down the back of someone’s collar. We were dreadful children.
