A picturesque view

Looking out of the window, there’s a lot of trees & bushes on the hill in the distance. Nothing unusual about that, apart from the colour of them – these aren’t green, but have a silvery white look to them.

Curious to know what they are, I asked a relative, who dug out a book on hedgerows and showed me a picture of a Hawthorn, complete with white flowers.


Flowering in May and early June, it goes on to produce berry-like fruits known as Haws (hence the name). According to wikepedia, these haws are a delicacy for birds like Thrushes and Waxwings.
