The Haws or berries on my Hawthorn are starting to colour up nicely. If the birds can leave well enough alone, I should be in for a good display this Autumn.
This Cotoneaster, also on rock, mustn’t be as tasty as the other one. The berries seem to have survived so far.
The other tree that took a tumble in the wind on Tuesday was Brian’s Hawthorn. It was undamaged.
I took the dead leaves off for a better photo of the Haws.
My Hawthorn Raft didn’t produce too many flowers this year. Not a problem really as it’s a long way to go before it’s the way I want to show it. It dropped most of it’s first flush leaves a week or so ago only leaving the later growth. This made the few haws more noticable.
Michael brought his little Blackthorn over yesterday to show us the berries. I don’t think I’ve ever seen them this big on a Blackthorn. There was more on it but his erratic driving on the way over put an end to that!
