Crown of Thorns

Hawthorn and Blackthorn are two of the spring's heralds, once they bloom you can be sure that 'primivera' has arrived.

This photograph is of a hawthorn which suffered badly in last years drought though now looks to be fully recovered.

Often used as a hedging plant it also makes an excellent tree, the pink form being particularly striking.
