Very festive around this time of year. Red is definitely a favourite colour of mine for the festive season. I know that 'commerce' often 'dictates' otherwise, but I am a tradional, lol, I do not want black or pink... So red, green and white it is... as you will see in the following images...
I know the leaves and berries are somewhat wether-beaten, but I love that, I find perfection boring!
The fruit, sometimes known as a "haw", is berry-like, but structurally a pome.
Hawthorns are important for wildlife in winter, particularly thrushes and waxwings; these birds eat the haws and disperse the seeds in their droppings.
Hope you are enjoying the run-up? Take it easy, take time to enjoy it! I do!
